Most Britons back Donald Trump’s planned state visit to UK, poll finds
This greatly contradicts the recent protests within the UK against the Donald Trump UK State Visit.
The anti Donald Trump protests are strongly suspected to have been organised by far left-wing communist Marxists and anti-British anti-American anti-democratic anarchist activists and revolutionaries.
This is also thought to be the case concerning the Women’s March protests, organised by Marxists and communists in order to create chaos and to bring on revolution and a far left-wing coup.
New petition to counter the left-wing protesters now online to allow Donald Trump State Visit
The survey, conducted by YouGov for The Times, found 49 per cent of the British public supported Mr Trump’s UK visit with 36 per cent opposed.
It is the first poll published on the contentious issue which has provoked widespread protest online and outside Westminster.
Since Sunday more than 1.7 million people have signed a petition to prevent Mr Trump visiting the UK saying “it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.”
It will now be debated by MPs on Februrary 20.
But the poll shows the volume of protests is not the same as so-called public opinion.
Theresa May has dismissed the petition saying she is “very happy” for Mr Trump’s planned state visit to Britain to go ahead.
The poll comes amid an intensifying backlash in Britain against the new US president’s travel ban on refugees and people from seven predominately Muslim countries.
The executive order, which shut down the US refugee programme for 120 days and halted all immigration from Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya and Yemen for 90 days, prompted thousands of Londoners to march on Downing Street on Monday evening.
The home secretary, Amber Rudd, issued one of the strongest condemnations of Mr Trump’s immigration policy, saying it risked becoming a “propaganda opportunity” for the Islamic State, according to The Times.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Londoners would not support “rolling out the red carpet” for Mr Trump until the muslim ban is lifted.
Mr Kahn told the Standard:”We must now rescind the offer of a full state visit for President Trump – until this ban is lifted.”
