Trump: You're not welcome

James Duddridge, Conservative MP for Rochford and Southend East, has tabled a motion of ‘no confidence’ against John Bercow, House of Common’s Speaker. Earlier this week John Bercow, in his position as Speaker, vowed to block President Trump from addressing Parliament during his state visit later this year.

In arriving at his ban, Bercow stated:

I feel very strongly that our opposition to racism, to sexism, and our support for equality before the law and an independent judiciary are hugely important considerations in the House of Commons.”

This should be interesting. What happens when Duddridge loses the vote? While it’s one thing for Trump to know that the Common’s Speaker has made an announcement; imagine his wrath when he learns that the Speaker has been backed by the Commons.
