People in Sunderland are calling for the Government to cancel Donald Trump’s upcoming visit to the UK following his sharing of a series of tweets that many have considered to be anti-Muslim.

On the evening of Wednesday November 29, the American President retweeted posts from Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of far-right political group Britain First.

The retweets, which Trump was urged by many to delete, included one showing a video with the headline: “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!”.

A second, also featuring a video, stated: “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!”.

Trump was due to come to the UK in early 2018, but after seeing those tweets Sunderland Twitter users have protested against his arrival, along with many other Twitter users, saying he should be banned from entering the UK.

Some of the tweets read:

Currently the Government have no plans to stop his visit to the UK, but some MPs are demanding Theresa May to cancel it.
