The UK Commons Speaker Doesn't Want Trump Addressing Parliament

"I would not wish to issue an invitation to President Trump to speak in the Royal Gallery," British Commons Speaker John Bercow said on Monday. 

The U.K. Commons speaker doesn't want President Donald Trump to speak to Parliament.

"I feel very strongly that our opposition to racism and to sexism and our support for equality before the law and an independent judiciary are hugely important considerations in the House of Commons," he said. 

The speaker was responding to a motion signed by 163 MPs. The motion called for a ban on Trump addressing the Palace of Westminster.

"After the imposition of the migrant ban by President Trump, I am even more strongly opposed to an address by President Trump," he said. 

More than 1.8 million people have signed a petition to stop Trump's visit to the U.K. The British Parliament will debate the petition on February 20.
