Support for the petition calling for Mr Trump's visit to be downgraded from a grand state visit – including pomp, pageantry a ceremonial welcome and an opulent state banquet – has soared since the president announced his travel ban.
It had only 60 signatories on Saturday, which soared to 500,000 by 6.20pm on Sunday and now stands at more than 1.68 million.
The petition states: "Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.
"Donald Trump's well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales. Therefore during the term of his presidency Donald Trump should not be invited to the United Kingdom for an official State Visit."

The rival petition in support of Mr Trump's visit says: "Donald Trump should be invited to make an official State Visit because he is the leader of a free world and U.K. is a country that supports free speech and does not believe that people that oppose our point of view should be gagged."
Veteran Labour left-winger Paul Flynn, a member of the Petitions Committee, will open the debate.
