The US President is not welcome in Britain, the organiser of an anti-Trump march in Leeds has said.
Speaking to ITV News, Christian Hogsbjerg added: "We are a multicultural society. refugees and migrants are welcome here in Leeds - and in Britain.
"Donald Trump is not welcome here at all."
Talking about Mr Trump's state visit to Britain, Leeds Grand Mosque manager Lassaad Laouini added: "I'm not comfortable (with it). Rolling the carpet for him is like endorsing the order he signed. We want more robust and strong leadership."
Downing Street has rejected calls from a petition backed by more than a million people to cancel the state visit planned for Donald Trump.
A spokesperson said any debate sparked by the petition was an "issue for Parliament" amid widespread outrage over Trump's executive-ordered US travel ban.
While Theresa May confirmed she did "not agree" with Trump's refugee ban, the spokesperson said the PM had no plans to cancel his state visit in protest.
The invitation has been extended and it has been accepted. The UK and the US have a strong relationship and it is right that that relationship continues.
We saw the closeness of the relationship between the Prime Minister and the President and it's right we continue to foster that relationship. We will proceed with the state visit.
The spokesperson said Mrs May was "very happy" to extend the invitation on behalf of the Queen, adding: "We look forward to hosting the president later this year."
