Trump: numbers surge in online petition
Donald Trump. A candidate for president. A successful business man. But his hate speeches have caused uproar in the UK. His controversial views have caused those in the UK to create a petition to ‘ban’ him.
“If the United Kingdom is to continue applying the ‘unacceptable behavior’ criteria to those who wish to enter its borders, it must be fairly applied to the rich as well as poor, and the weak as well as powerful.”
This is from the website of the petition.The point the petition makes is a short yet powerful one. The law should apply to all. Trump’s speech against Muslims was prejudice, saying all of them were basically terrorists. This petition is already over 112,000 signatures, and the government is only meant to answer after 10,000 and the parliament after 100,000. They both should respond shortly. Numbers are surging and they won’t stop.
This online petition could have the power to change opinions of those in the US. We will provide further updates as the story progresses.
