Given some of the people that have been welcomed into the country, and some that Corbyn would meet I'm going to say blatant electioneering.
Regardless of what they think of the man on a personal level he is the President of our closest allies and if Corbyn is serious about becoming PM then he will have to learn to suck up some of his much vaunted principles ( like he did with brexit to garner votes)

I think if Chinese President Xi Jinping can address the parliament given his reputation on global trade cheating, human rights abuse, anti democracy + anti free speech beliefs, homophobia, the ongoing persecution of Chinese Muslims, I could go on…

Then why can’t trump, president of the nation that’s our biggest ally address this parliament? Rhetoric aside trump hasn’t actually committed any discrimination, he might’ve said some politically incorrect things but otherwise I don’t get it.

But there’s no point saying we’ve dropped our standards in the past, let’s do it again so I prefer this point, and this is the biggest hypocrisy of it all, if Trump can’t enforce a migrant ban, why can we enforce a migrant ban at the channel tunnel??? Double standards. It’s no different. We tell France to take them back and keep them away, we’re lucky to have neighbours that cooperate with us. Why did we take in little to no refugees? Trump has the same justification as us, we share the same ‘morality’.

After all, in his own words, it was Trumps migrant ban that led the speaker to his decision

Trump is the one with very good reasons not to share a table with someone like Corbyn, not the other way round. Why would anyone want to spend the evening next to someone who spent his life endorsing and promoting despotic and brutal dictatorships like Corbyn has? I'd snub him.

Laughable. Corbyn has literally eaten with Hamas (who vows to annihilate Jews of Israel). He invited the IRA to the House of Commons- 2 weeks after they tried to assassinate the PM and blow up Parliament. He’s praised Venezuela and worked with President Maduro, who has committed numerous human rights violations and utterly destroyed the Venezuelan economy. He had dinner with the President of China, who is literally putting Muslims in concentration camps and committing a whole host of other human rights violations. But Donald Trump is who he draws the line with. Socialist nut job

In fairness to Cable he turned down a banquet with a different leader (the country escapes me) 10 or so years. At least he seems consistent on the matter.

I agree tbh. If the UK allow leaders worse than Trump to speak without snubbing them, I'm not sure why Trump solely should be boycotted.

Right. Principled though? Well, without knowing how they reacted to other foreign leaders I couldn't really give an opinion.

Trump is a pretty awful human being and there is no reason why they should either associate with him or give him any more attention than he currently gets.
