Staff Writer |
British MPs will on February 20 debate whether Donald Trump should be granted a state visit.

This comes after a petition to stop the U.S. president from meeting the Queen was signed by more than 1.7 million people.

The petition says Trump should be allowed to enter the U.K., but “a state visit would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.”

The debate was called by the U.K. Petitions Committee. The parliament will, on the same day, discuss a second petition that calls for the state visit to go ahead. That has been signed by more than 100,000 people, and there is currently 1.7 million signatures.
