According to the New York Times newspaper , the Republican presidential contender Donald J. Trump has lashed out at a petition seeking to bar him from entering Britain, saying that politicians there should thank him rather than “pandering to political correctness.”

Mr. Trump’s comments on Monday that foreign Muslims should be barred from entering the United States gave added traction to the online petition, which called for him to be refused entry into Britain on the basis of laws against hate speech.

The newspaper added that, the petition had garnered nearly 500,000 signatures as of early Friday , easily passing the threshold of 100,000 supporters that requires Parliament to consider debating the issue.
