Hello, I'm Karin Giannone with BBC World News.

:00:00.:00:00.

His controversial views have set the US republican presidential

:00:07.:00:08.

discussing whether he should be banned from the UK.

:00:09.:00:19.

The world of tennis is rocked by a BBC report into allegations

:00:20.:00:22.

World number one Novak Djokovic reveals he rejected

:00:23.:00:27.

an approach to lose a match - and condemned potential cheats.

:00:28.:00:38.

Somebody may cause an opportunity, I call it... Ronnie, it is a crime in

:00:39.:00:43.

sport. The Paris attacks investigation:

:00:44.:00:48.

Morocco arrests a Belgian national it says is linked to

:00:49.:00:50.

the men responsible. The transformation from where I was

:00:51.:01:01.

a year ago, not able to move from bed and being fed from a spoon...

:01:02.:01:04.

And we hear about the remarkable improvement to this man's life

:01:05.:01:07.

after a new treatment for multiple sclerosis.

:01:08.:01:18.

He's caused controversy in the US with his comments about Mexicans,

:01:19.:01:23.

Now some politicians here in the UK are calling for US Republican

:01:24.:01:29.

presidential candidate Donald Trump to be banned from Britain.

:01:30.:01:35.

from the Grand Committee Room of the Palace of Westminster.

:01:36.:01:42.

MPs have been discussing this now for around two and a half hours.

:01:43.:01:49.

Ahead of the debate, one of Trump's companies in Scotland

:01:50.:01:52.

said a ban like this could mean abandoning plans to invest

:01:53.:01:54.

?700 million - that's a billion dollars.

:01:55.:01:56.

They said "For the UK to consider banning someone who made a statement

:01:57.:01:59.

in America, about American borders during a US election

:02:00.:02:01.

Westminster is creating a dangerous precedent on this issue

:02:02.:02:07.

and is sending a terrible message to the world.

:02:08.:02:09.

Well, let's listen to some of what has been said in parliament

:02:10.:02:12.

A man who is interviewing for the most important job in the world, his

:02:13.:02:23.

words are not comical, his words are not funny, his words are poisonous.

:02:24.:02:30.

They risk inflaming tensions between communities. Let me make one thing

:02:31.:02:35.

clear, we had legislation in this country to make sure we do not let

:02:36.:02:38.

people and who are not conducive to the public good. If, God forbid, the

:02:39.:02:49.

public went ahead with this, it would only play into Donald Trump's

:02:50.:02:55.

hands. He lavishes attention by saying controversial things.

:02:56.:03:02.

And far from the debate in the UK - Donald Trump has been busy

:03:03.:03:06.

on the campaign trail - visiting Liberty University

:03:07.:03:07.

in Lynchburg, Virginia trying to drum up support.

:03:08.:03:09.

I am wondering if he is overly concerned with what is happening

:03:10.:03:22.

here at Westminster. Any word? Not remain in particular. During his

:03:23.:03:27.

speech here, he did not actually mention either the British

:03:28.:03:33.

Parliamentary debate on the call for a ban from him on Muslims entering

:03:34.:03:37.

the country, that is what it was meant to be about. They are trying

:03:38.:03:43.

to get support for the vote so he quoted from the Bible, spoke about

:03:44.:03:48.

the war on Christmas and how the country is too politically correct.

:03:49.:03:54.

He said about the debate and an sign saying Merry Christmas. He spoke

:03:55.:03:59.

about his view on immigration and refugees, that America did not know

:04:00.:04:03.

who people were, they should not be let in. He said the crime rates are

:04:04.:04:07.

suffering due to immigration. He did not reference Muslims specifically.

:04:08.:04:13.

We did get a comment from the Democratic committee who are taking

:04:14.:04:16.

full advantage of the situation, they said it was shameful that this

:04:17.:04:21.

debate was happening and that the rhetoric from other candidates had

:04:22.:04:25.

caused this international incident and were barely anything national

:04:26.:04:28.

partners and they show how right-wing the Republic candidates

:04:29.:04:33.

had become. What his supporters had to say to the fact that he has been

:04:34.:04:36.

spoken about any terms across the pond? It was interesting here

:04:37.:04:43.

because it wasn't a typical supporter crowd. Because it was a

:04:44.:04:47.

university, most of the attendees were students and they had to attend

:04:48.:04:51.

this kind of event. When I chatted with them, a lot of them said they

:04:52.:04:55.

did not agree with his calls for a ban on Muslims. Some of them said it

:04:56.:05:01.

was maybe even hate speech. They tended to focus on the right to free

:05:02.:05:06.

speech, saying that Donald Tom should be allied to say what he

:05:07.:05:12.

wants to say and that the British parliament could debate it and they

:05:13.:05:17.

should be argued that. I did because some Donald Trump supporters and

:05:18.:05:21.

they just thought it would be ridiculous. One of them said, " do

:05:22.:05:30.

they not want Mr Trump's investment? " And that they would be treating

:05:31.:05:35.

him like he wants to treat Muslims. They said it would not be right

:05:36.:05:37.

there. Barbara,

:05:38.:05:38.
