Businessman and potential Republican nominee for the U.S. Presidency Donald Trump has some pretty awful views on immigration, so it’s quite funny to see him get a taste of his own medicine.
It turns out a heck of a lot of people north of the border in Scotland really want Trump banned from entering the UK, on hate speech grounds.
The calls come following his comments about Mexicans entering the U.S. (he likened them all to “rapists”), his idea to monitor all Muslims in America following the Paris attacks, and his belief that Syrian refugees shouldn’t be allowed into the country – but one doubts he’ll be too pleased now the boot is on the other foot.
Suzanne Kelly of Aberdeen is one of the many people who think Trump is an utter bellend. She already set up a petition back in 2013 to try and stop his plans to build “the greatest golf course in the world” on the Menie Estate, citing a number of environmental reasons.
As reported by i100, now Kelly has upped her game again and she’s started a second petition to ban him from entering the country because of his hateful words.
The signatories believe Donald J Trump should be banned from UK entry for his continued, unrepentant hate speech and unacceptable behaviour. His unacceptable behaviour is well documented, and we feel it foments racial, religious and nationalistic intolerance which should not be welcome in the UK.
The UK has banned entry to many individuals for hate speech. This same principle should apply to Donald J Trump. We cannot see how the United Kingdom can condone his entry to the country when many people have been barred for less.Advertisement
If the anti-Trump petition hits 100,000 signatures, it’ll be put forward and considered for debate in the House of Commons, which would be utterly hilarious and amazing. So let’s make this happen, Britain!
