Echoing an online petition with over 1 million supporters in the UK, the Financial Times has urged for Britain to reconsider any state visit from Trump as long as the Muslim Ban executive order remains in place. The paper described Trump’s immigration order “as badly designed as it is inhumane.”
No leader outside of the administration can justify responding with silence. Talk of President Trump making a state visit to Britain should be off the table while the order remains in place.
As of this writing, British Prime Minister Theresa May has yet to withdraw the invitation for Trump’s future visit.
