Politicians will debate later this month whether or not Donald Trump should be banned from the UK after a petition garnered more than 560,000 signatures.

The controversial Republican presidential candidate has been widely condemned in Britain for his controversial comments, but a ban would mean that he would not be allowed to step foot in the country.

If the property tycoon is banned from the UK, then he will join a long list of persons forbidden to enter the country.
