With more than 1.6million people signing a petition to stop Donald Trump from making a state visit to the UK, Eastbourne’s MP has spoken out.
Many are angry at the US President’s immigration ban and say a visit would ‘embarrass the Queen’.
Commenting on the situation, Caroline Ansell said, “Like many people, I am concerned about the way President Trump is acting in certain areas but he is the leader of our closest friend and ally.
“I have already said we must be pragmatic and deal with him and try our best as a government to influence and advise him.
“Shutting up shop and refusing to listen to the US president because of his policies is short sighted. To that end, we must allow the state visit to take place.”
