The foreign affairs spokeswoman for the UK's opposition Labour Party has launched a blistering attack on Donald Trump.
Speaking to CNN, Emily Thornberry, the shadow foreign secretary, listed a litany of complaints about Trump, including his policies on Iran, the Middle East and climate change.
And she said Trump was unfit to have been offered a state visit, with all the pageantry that it entails.
"It is wrong for you to be as racist as you are. It is wrong for you to be as misogynistic as you are. It is wrong for you to assault women. Why should we be afraid to say those things?" Thornberry added.
Thornberry noted that only three previous US Presidents had been welcomed on state visits.
"I don't think that this President, given his behavior, deserves the honor," she said, adding: "I do not see why our country should be a cute backdrop for President Trump's re-election campaign."
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who turned down an invitation to the state banquet for Trump at Buckingham Palace, will address protesters at a London rally against Trump's visit later on Tuesday.
Corbyn has attended state banquets and events for other controversial world leaders who have faced questions over their human rights records, including Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Asked if it was hypocritical of Corbyn to boycott Monday evening's event, Thornberry said it was "a good question," but that the Labour Party was taking a different approach towards Trump "because of our closeness to America."
