3,000 sign pe­ti­tion against Trump visit

Macclesfield Express - - BY-ELECTION PREVIEW -

AL­MOST 3,000 peo­ple in Mac­cles­field have signed a pe­ti­tion call­ing for Amer­i­can pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s state visit to be can­celled.

The pe­ti­tion, which has clocked up 1.8m sig­na­tures, calls for the visit – which is due to take place in the sum­mer – to be aban­doned be­cause of the risk it will “em­bar­rass” the Queen.

A to­tal of 2,937 peo­ple – 3.13 per cent of 93,856 con­stituents in Mac­cles­field – backed the pe­ti­tion, which will be de­bated in Par­lia­ment.
