UK town bans Donald Trump from visiting

Councillors of the United Kingdom town of Greenwich have banned United States of America President Donald Trump from entering the town.

The Councillors voted to bar Trump from entering the town ahead of his proposed state visit to the UK.

The Council also called on the UK government to rescind its plans to host President Trump next year.

According to the Greenwich Council, it had adopted a motion to stop the state visit and that “should a state visit go ahead, President Trump would not be welcome in the Borough.”

The Council expressed “alarm at the decision of President Trump to retweet islamophobic propaganda” and showed “sadness at the President’s bigoted attitude towards women and ethnic minorities.”

The Council Leader, Councillor Denise Hyland, said, “On a daily basis we work hand in hand with residents from all communities to ensure this borough is a peaceful and welcoming place that celebrates difference and diversity, but in the case of President Trump we are willing to make an exception.

“We are one of 32 London boroughs, all different, all individual but all home to people from across the world.

“This diversity strengthens our borough. It enriches our lives on a daily basis. And it reminds us all that we have so much more in common than divides us.

“As one of the most multi-cultural London boroughs, we are a place that has worked tirelessly to break down barriers. We have no time for people who want to build walls, when we have done so much to break them down.”
