UK leaders debate banning Donald Trump from the country

LONDON (WREX) -

Donald Trump may be the Republican frontrunner for President, but his popularity in the states isn't translating overseas. 

UK leaders debated whether to ban Trump from the nation, with supporters citing Trump's call to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S. Some lawmakers say a ban on Trump would feed his public relations campaign, with one saying it would give the candidate a "halo of victimhood."

The UK banning debate started after an online petition to ban Trump attracted more than half a million signatures.
