Donald Trump slapped with a in your face ban from giving historic address in British Parliament's grandest hall
The Speaker vowed to block an address in the 11th Century Westminster Hall as he slammed the President's "racism and sexism"
Donald Trump is set to be banned from giving a historic address in the British Parliament's grandest and most prestigious hall.
The House of Commons Speaker today announced he did not want to invite the US President to speak in the 11th Century Westminster Hall when he makes a state visit later this year.
John Bercow slammed Trump for "racism and sexism", his undermining of judges and his migrant ban.
He added that although he does not have as much say over a speech in the glittering Royal Gallery in the House of Lords, "I would not wish to issue an invitation".
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn tweeted: "Well said John Bercow. We must stand up for our country's values. Trump's State Visit should not go ahead."
