A new online poll shows 93% of people surveyed believe President Trump should address a joint sitting of the Australian Parliament.
Earlier this year Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi succeeded with a Senate motion to extend the same courtesy given to previous United States presidents, for Donald Trump to be invited to address the Parliament when he visits the region later this year.
President Trump is scheduled to attend an APEC leaders’ summit in Papua New Guinea in November, prompting speculation in Washington that he might stop over in Australia on the way.
Former US presidents George W Bush, George H Bush and Bill Clinton were all granted the rare privilege of addressing the federal Parliament.
Despite the fact that Mr Trump would likely be greeted by mass left-wing protests if he visited Australia, nobody in the Senate chamber spoke against Senator Bernardi’s resolution.
