The Trump petition

Sussex residents have added their voice to a national petition which aims to prevent President Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom.

The petition has amassed nearly 1,800,000, across the UK, with new signatures being added regularly.

Across Sussex nearly 63,000 people have added their name.

The petition reads: “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.”

Across the county, Brighton’s constituencies are particularly active signing up to the petition.

However, the Lewes area residents are also busy adding their names.
