Manx make mark on Trump petition

1.6 million Brits sign online document to cancel the President's state visit to Britain

A petition to stop Donald Trump making a state visit to Britain has garnered almost 400 signatures from Isle of Man residents.

It follows a stringent clampdown on immigration by the US President, which bars people from seven mainly Muslim countries from entering the country.

More than 1.6million people have now signed the petition - however the UK Government has rejected the calls to cancel the visit.

Anti-Trump demonstrations took place in a number of British towns and cities last night, including Edinburgh, Cardiff, Manchester, Liverpool and London.
