Petition calling for Donald Trump UK ban passes 100,000

A petition calling for the Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be banned from entering the UK has reached 100,000 signatures, meaning it will be considered for debate in Parliament.

The petition was posted in response to Mr Trump's call for a temporary halt on Muslims entering the United States.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump has been defending his comments on American television in an interview with ABC News veteran broadcaster Barbara Walters.
