Londoners react to Trump’s ban

The decision to ban the entry of citizens from seven Islamic-majority nations into the US by President Donald Trump has caused anger within PM Theresa May's party. Although Ms May was the first foreign premier to secure a visit to the White House, the PM was criticised for failing to condemn the ban during her meeting with Trump. The Independent had also highlighted the insignificance of Ms May's visit who failed to make frontpage headlines in the US. The Prime Minister had recently returned from a two-day visit to the US. Iraqi-born Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi was vocal about the decision: I'm a British citizen & so proud to have been welcomed to this country. Sad to hear I'll be banned from the USA based on my country of birth — Nadhim Zahawi (@nadhimzahawi) January 28
