The speaker of Britain’s lower house of parliament will try to block plans for US president Donald Trump to address the house, saying it is an honour he has not earned.

John Bercow — one of three officials who has the power to approve Trump addressing the House of Commons on a state visit later this year — said he would oppose the move, citing concerns over the US president’s immigration ban.

More than 1.8 million people in Britain have signed a petition calling for Trump’s visit — planned following an official invitation by British Prime Minister Theresa May — to be cancelled.
