    I'm just glad Americans won't be voting for him after these 4 years and I'm 100% sure that Brits will not stand for a similar ban on refugees :-)
    If he does a better job than Obama, which in all honesty won't be that difficult, then there is nothing to stop him getting re-elected. The silly protests will eventually stop once those with a mind of their own realise that America is benefiting from Trump's presidency.

    You never know what will happen in 4 years time.

    Most people said he never even make it into the presidential race... Then they said he had no chance of winning... Then they were are proved wrong.

    He is destroying core values that America has gone to war for.

    Perceived economic or security benefits are just that, perceived, and not worth it. In addition, he is creating an incredibly unstable world.

    No one but his laphounds would believe that America is benefiting from a Trump presidency.

    The State Visit is clearly a political carrot from May to DT.

    Other presidents had to wait a lot longer to get a Visit, and Clinton and Bush (snr) never got one at all.

    NB. Combines data from the royal.uk list of State Visits, and the US equivalent. Curiously Reagan's visit isn't on the UK list but is on the US one (there were diplomatic "problems" apparently). And Obama's is on the UK list but not the US one. Hmm... curious...

    It just seems rather odd to give the carrot before anything good for Britain has actually happened. It's like tipping a waiter for good service, before you get the meal.

    Another poll from YouGov published today has received less coverage.

    If Trump's "Muslim ban" (which actually isn't a Muslim ban of course, but we live in an alternative truth era) were introduced in the UK:

    52% would either be pleased or wouldn't care, or don't know if they care.

    If there's one thing that 2016 has taught me, it's that nobody cares what 49% of any given country's population wants, and they will not be listened to.

    Please stop confusing him for a white supremacist, doing this really makes white supremacy feel much weaker,if you look at real white supremacists they are horribly racist and view blacks and other minorities as slaves. watch a Louie Theroux on them, It shows you how they are on their best of days.

    You can hate trump all you want but he is no white supremacist
    Of gosh what was I thinking..trump's just so perfect and he isn't racist at all. He's such a loveable character. Even the ALT-RIGHT Love him(white supremacists). He's so lovingly towards minorities in the states. In your ****ing dreams. The man is a white supremacist an de I genuinely feel sorry for minority communities right now

    If you look at the full data, only 36% want the visit cancelled.

    Despite that amazing online petition that got the snowflakes so excited. :rolleyes:

    Or to put it more clearly:

    27% would be in favour
    12% don't care
    12% don't know
    49% would be against it

    I really do dislike him, he's a racist, homophobic
    When has he been racist or homophobic? Did you miss the part when he protected LGBT rights?

    Stop being triggered; Obama did the same thing in 2011 for 6 months. TRIGGERED FEMINISTS.

    Yes, I did. I did see that he didn't undo them, but not that he 'protected' them from anyone but himself. I try not to read too much about what he's doing though

    But if course that sample size doesn't allow the result to be statistically significant enough to really say with any confidence that that is the case.

    Well, for a start there was "I'm against gay marriage."

    Homophobic exactly? Hard to define. But certainly a great concern to anyone truly interested in equality.

    So she should keep the invite in her briefcase until the deal is done.

    Trump said he was "against gay marriage"?
