U.K. government responds to petition to ban Trump

(CNN)The United Kingdom isn’t formally barring Donald Trump from entering its borders — at least not yet.

The British government on Wednesday offered a pointedly inconclusive response to an online citizens’ petition asking that Trump be banned from the country.

In its statement, the government reaffirmed the power of Home Secretary Theresa May to “exclude a non-European Economic Area national from the UK if she considers their presence in the UK to be non-conducive to the public good,” but does not clearly state whether her office would apply that criteria to Trump.
