Donald Trump with his executive order banning refugees from seven Muslim countries

A petition to block Donald Trump from a state visit to the UK has hit one million signatures, hours ahead of nationwide protests.

The petition says: "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.

"Donald Trump's well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales."
But Downing Street has already insisted Mr Trump's state visit will go ahead.

Emphasizing that there had been no change of position, a spokesperson said: "An invitation has been extended and accepted."

The petition was started in November but gained traction this weekend amid outrage over Mr Trump's 90-day travel ban on people from seven mainly Muslim countries - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
