The Trump Organization warns United Kingdom that banning Donald Trump would be a mistake

Donald Trump is making good on his promise to "counterpunch" anyone who crosses him — even if it means taking on the entire United Kingdom. Following a scheduled debate in the British Parliament to discuss if Trump's presence in the U.K. would be "non-conducive to the public good," the Trump Organization has warned that if actions follow, they would have consequences, Fox News reports.

The United Kingdom's proposed Donald Trump ban arose after Trump's widely criticized call for a Muslim ban in the United States. British Prime Minister David Cameron has deemed Trump's proposal "divisive, unhelpful, and quite simply wrong." A petition circulating in the U.K. has earned more than 560,000 signatures calling for Trump to be turned away from Britain's borders.

However, according to the Trump Organization, a ban would "alienate the many millions of United States citizens who wholeheartedly support Mr. Trump and have made him the forerunner by far in the 2016 presidential election." Further, the Trump Organization warned that were the U.K. to take any action against its namesake, it would "force The Trump Organization to immediately end [investments in Turnberry] and all future investments we are currently contemplating in the United Kingdom."
