British Parliament Debates Petition To Block Donald Trump From The U.K.

A petition to block Donald Trump from the United Kingdom is being debated in British Parliament.

The debate was sparked when an online petition calling for the ban reached over half a million signatures.

Only 100,000 signatures are needed for a petition to qualify debate in Parliament.

The petition came up when Trump called for a ban to stop Muslims from entering the United States.

The heated discussion in the halls of Parliament was more symbolic than anything. 

There was no official vote.
