The petition states:
The signatories believe Trump should be banned from UK entry.
The UK has banned entry to many individuals for hate speech. The same principles should apply to everyone who wishes to enter the UK.
If the United Kingdom is to continue applying the ‘unacceptable behavior’ criteria to those who wish to enter its borders, it must be fairly applied to the rich as well as poor, and the weak as well as powerful.
There is a precedent for such a ban of American wingnut. Wingnut hate speech radio hack Michael Savage is banned from the UK on the same grounds of hate speech but never has the front-runner for a major political party’s presidential nomination faced a potential ban from entering a country because of his hateful rhetoric.
If Trump were to be elected pretender, the President Of The United States might not be allowed into the territory of one of America’s oldest and greatest allies.
The message being sent is that Trump isn’t just an embarrassment to the United States, he is viewed by many as a danger to the world.
