Theresa May, speaking at a joint press conference with her Irish counterpart Enda Kenny in Dublin, dismissed a petition signed by 1.4million Britons and large demonstrations across the UK demanding the cancellation of President Trump’s proposed visit to the UK.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has also written to the Prime Minister to demand she revoke the invitation to President Trump, who has sparked worldwide outrage after imposing a travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries.

Refusing to back down on an invitation she issued to President Trump on her visit to the White House last night, Mrs May said: “The US is a close ally of the UK. We work together across many areas of mutual interest and we have that special relationship between us.

“I have informally issued that invitation for a state visit for President Trump to the UK and that invitation stands.”
