Around 1,000 people have signed up to attend the event via a Facebook post advertising the gathering outside Sheffield Town Hall at 6pm.

Trump has placed a ban on refugees and travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US or being issued with an immigrant or non-immigrant visa, while a 90-day extreme vetting process is carried out.

Britons with dual nationality with the seven countries will not be affected.
