Lots of people in the U.K. want to ban Donald Trump from visiting. Their motive: 

"Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," Trump said.

A petition to ban him has more than 300,000 signatures, which means Parliament has to review it.

If banned, Trump would join the not-very-auspicious club of celebrities blacklisted in the U.K.

Mike Tyson was on the "do-not-enter" list due to his rape convcition.

So was Dieudonne M'bala M'bala, a French comedian often accused of anti-Semitism. 

Chris Brown was banned following accusations of abuse. 

Also, the current president and first lady of Zimbabwe.

And everyone's favorite homemaker, Martha Stewart, in response to her obstruction-of-justice charges. 

Government officials say a Trump ban isn't the answer. And a spokesman for Trump said the presidential candidate doesn't have any U.K. travel plans in the near future.
