UK Parliament Speaker Refuses to Invite Trump Due to His Racism and Sexism

Props to Great Britain’s House of Commons, John Bercow, for stating that he would block President Trump from addressing the UK’s Parliament during a state visit later this year due to his racism and sexism. Bercow said being invited to speak is an “earned honor” and not one that automatically comes with a state visit.

“We value our relationship with the U.S. If a state visit takes place that is way beyond the pay grade of the Speaker. However, as far as this place is concerned, I feel very strongly that our opposition to racism, and to sexism and our support for equality before the law and an independent judiciary are important considerations in the House of Commons.”
