Trump still not welcome to address UK Parliament, says Speaker

US President Trump is still not welcome to address the British Parliament, UK House of Commons Speaker John Bercow said Tuesday. Bercow defended his decision while saying that nothing has changed since his 2017 decision not to invite Trump, citing then, it would run contrary to Parliament’s ’opposition to racism and to sexism’.

I like Bercow but he has never been able to keep his own politics out of the Speaker's chair. Trump is not racist or sexist. He has political views on foreign policy and gender related issues which differ starkly to John Bercow's. The role of Mr Speaker however, should have no political views.

However, there is nothing preventing Trump from addressing the people of the UK directly, via Twitter, like he has shown an penchant for... just saying.

It is this same thinking that has kept the Parliament from listening to the will of the people and achieving Brexit. If you do not rid yourselves of such poor leadership they will trade away your freedom and sovereignty as if you never fought Germany in WWII.
