Widespread protests over Donald Trump's travel ban

Downing Street has rejected calls to axe the state visit planned for Donald Trump following widespread outrage over his travel ban on people from certain countries.

More than one million people have signed a petition stating Mr Trump should not be given a state visit.

The immigration curbs have sparked chaos across the US as travellers were detained at airports and thousands of protesters gathered to campaign against the policy.

Boris Johnson has claimed President Trump's immigration policy is "divisive... discriminatory and wrong", but dismissed claims the US is "hostile" towards foreigners.

The prime minister needs to learn to be strong and stand up to Trump, Harriet Harman has said.

The Labour MP told BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "I was horrified when he announced this ban on people from Muslim countries and three times she said 'Oh it's nothing to do with me' and it is something to do with us as we all know."

She added: "She's got to learn she's got to stand up for things and not be cautious and just come out against something when she's pushed."

She said Theresa May still "needs to be politically strong even though we're at a moment of economic vulnerability" during Brexit.
