    A recent proposal by US presidential candidate Donald Trump to prohibit all Muslims from entering the United States was "stupid and wrong", British Prime Minister David Cameron said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) On December 7, Trump, who is the current front runner for the Republican Party presidential nomination, called for a complete ban of all Muslims entering the United States until a counterterrorism plan had been established.

    "I think his remarks are divisive, stupid and wrong and I think if he came to visit our country, he would unite us all against him," Cameron told the UK parliament.

    Cameron added that he supported refusing entry to the United Kingdom to anyone who encourages extremism.

    A UK digital petition to ban Trump from the United Kingdom for his anti-Muslim remarks has gathered over 500,000 signatures.
