Numbers of signatories have been rising rapidly since a US clampdown on immigration came into effect over the weekend, causing anger worldwide.
However, Downing Street confirmed that Theresa May would not be withdrawing her invitation to the US president because it remained “substantially in the national interest”.
Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.

Funnily enough when a US President insults the Royal family, bans British citizens from travelling to America, blocks a KNight Of The Realm from going home, bans members of the British Parliament from visiting America, there might just be a little bit of a backlash.
We're supposed to be your closest ally, and Trump has just treated us like crap.
So yeah. There's a backlash.

Two wrongs do not make a right. The English should learn to concentrate on things that matter to them and try to help settle tensions not make more tensions. Some of the people in The UK still want to be part of the European Union and I bet most of these signitures to sabatage US/UK relations are from people who want to reverse Brexit.
