Over 100 Labour MPs sign letter to Theresa May demanding cancellation of Trump's new year visit

Updated: Aug 15, 2023

Today, over 100 Labour MPs put their names to a letter addressed to the Prime Minister Theresa May demanding that she cancel any planned UK visit early next year by Donald Trump.


The decision to draft the letter was taken following statements made by the US Ambassador that he expected the US President to visit early next year.


The signatories wish to remind the Prime Minister of Trump's support for the British far-right, his climate change denial and his antagonistic foreign policy.


Taken together, the President's recent actions and beliefs are presented as incompatible with Prime Minister May's stated commitment to tolerance and equality.


The full letter and list of signatories are available below.


Alex Sobel MP, the letter's author says:


"Donald Trump's public positions on various issues such as the ban on citizens from Muslim majority countries visiting the US, pulling out of the Paris climate change agreement and unapologetically retweeting a British far-right group means Theresa May needs to withdrawn any invitation extended to the US President. It's a reflection of the strength of feeling within the Parliamentary Labour Party that over 100 MPs put their name to this letter."
