In London, Commons Speaker Faces No Confidence Vote Over Trump Ban

The Speaker of the British House of Commons, John Bercow, is facing a motion of No Confidence over his unilateral decision to ban U.S. President Donald Trump from Parliament. Bercow made the announcement that he would not allow Trump to address MPs in order to defend against “racism and discrimination” earlier this week.

Addressing the House of Commons, Bercow said: “We value our relationship with the United States. If a state visit takes place, that is way beyond and above the pay grade of the speaker… However, as far as this place is concerned, I feel very strongly that our opposition to racism and to sexism and our support for equality before the law, and an independent judiciary, are hugely important considerations in the House of Commons.”
