Donald Trump has reportedly cancelled his state visit to London after constant threat of a protest against him.
The Guardian’s diplomatic editor Patrick Wintour said that the US President Theresa May via telephone, that he would not to visit until he gains support from the British public.
More than a million people signed a petition to stop President Trump from visiting the country, after he signed an executive order which bans immigration from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen for 120 days. However, Mrs May refused to cancel the invitation she offered to the President on behalf of the Queen.
Today, Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader who delivered a stunning win for his party in the recent general elections, said the “cancellation of President Trump’s visit is welcome, especially after his attack on London’s mayor & withdrawal from #ParisClimateDeal.”
“Theresa May should be embarrassed that she was so quick to offer Trump a state visit,” said Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrat.
