A number of constituents have written to me regarding polices implemented by Donald Trump during his first two weeks as President.

I do not agree with the recent actions taken by Donald Trump as President of the United States.  However, we have invited many international leaders to the UK who have a far worse record on human rights and used the opportunity to speak to them, encouraging change.  Refusing to engage or debate would lead to the USA taking an even greater isolationist stance.

The USA is a close ally of the United Kingdom. We work together across many areas of mutual interest and we have historically enjoyed a special relationship between our two nations.  The Prime Minister has issued an invitation for a state visit for President Trump to the United Kingdom and that invitation rightly stands.   

I would expect these issues to be raised during any visit.
