Campaigners staged protests at two golf resorts owned by Mr Trump in Scotland on Sunday ahead of the Commons debate.
On Monday, MPs will spend three hours in Westminster Hall debating whether Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in the wake of controversial remarks about Muslims, Mexicans, women and gay people.
The debate was selected by the Petitions Committee, a group of 11 backbench MPs who decide whether e-petitions that reach over 100,000 signatures should be put forward for discussion.
A rival petition saying it would be illogical to ban Mr Trump from the UK has reached over 40,000 signatures.Mr Trump is still leading several opinion polls in the race to be the Republican candidate for November’s US presidential election.
