from the Grand Committee Room of the Palace of Westminster.
MPs have been discussing this now for around two and a half hours.
Ahead of the debate, one of Trump's companies in Scotland
said a ban like this could mean abandoning plans to invest
?700 million - that's a billion dollars.
They said "For the UK to consider banning someone who made a statement
in America, about American borders during a US election
Westminster is creating a dangerous precedent on this issue
and is sending a terrible message to the world.
Well, let's listen to some of what has been said in parliament
A man who is interviewing for the most important job in the world, his
words are not comical, his words are not funny, his words are poisonous.
They risk inflaming tensions between communities. Let me make one thing
clear, we had legislation in this country to make sure we do not let
people and who are not conducive to the public good. If, God forbid, the
public went ahead with this, it would only play into Donald Trump's
hands. He lavishes attention by saying controversial things.
And far from the debate in the UK - Donald Trump has been busy
on the campaign trail - visiting Liberty University
in Lynchburg, Virginia trying to drum up support.
I am wondering if he is overly concerned with what is happening
here at Westminster. Any word? Not remain in particular. During his
speech here, he did not actually mention either the British
Parliamentary debate on the call for a ban from him on Muslims entering
the country, that is what it was meant to be about. They are trying
to get support for the vote so he quoted from the Bible, spoke about
the war on Christmas and how the country is too politically correct.
He said about the debate and an sign saying Merry Christmas. He spoke
about his view on immigration and refugees, that America did not know
who people were, they should not be let in. He said the crime rates are
suffering due to immigration. He did not reference Muslims specifically.
We did get a comment from the Democratic committee who are taking
full advantage of the situation, they said it was shameful that this
debate was happening and that the rhetoric from other candidates had
caused this international incident and were barely anything national
partners and they show how right-wing the Republic candidates
had become. What his supporters had to say to the fact that he has been
spoken about any terms across the pond? It was interesting here
because it wasn't a typical supporter crowd. Because it was a
university, most of the attendees were students and they had to attend
this kind of event. When I chatted with them, a lot of them said they
did not agree with his calls for a ban on Muslims. Some of them said it
was maybe even hate speech. They tended to focus on the right to free
speech, saying that Donald Tom should be allied to say what he
wants to say and that the British parliament could debate it and they
should be argued that. I did because some Donald Trump supporters and
they just thought it would be ridiculous. One of them said, " do
they not want Mr Trump's investment? " And that they would be treating
him like he wants to treat Muslims. They said it would not be right
