Greenwich councilors adopted a motion Thursday that said Trump wouldn’t be allowed into the borough.


This "is a peaceful and welcoming place that celebrates difference and diversity, but in the case of President Trump we are willing to make an exception," Denise Hyland, Greenwich’s top official said Thursday, according to USA Today.

The local Greenwich leaders wrote in the motion that they expressed "alarm at the decision of President Trump to retweet Islamophobic Propaganda" and "sadness at the President's bigoted attitude towards women and ethnic minorities."

Trump caused outrage after he retweeted the videos last month.

British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned Trump for retweeting the videos and British politicians called for her to withdraw Trump’s invitation to visit the country. May’s office said that it would not pull the invitation.

The Greenwich neighborhood, located on the Thames River, is home to some of the most historic sites in London, including the Royal Observatory and Prime Meridian. Other major landmarks include the National Maritime Museum and the Old Royal Naval College.
