But Mr Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, said: "They just don't like my opinion and want to silence me".

But a group of MPs have written to President Donald Trump's head of the US State department Mr Pompeo demanding he he banned from visiting and insisting he would use it to "promote his violent and extremist agenda" and could end up opening sources for campaign funding.The MPs argued Mr Robinson's previous attempt to get into the country using someone else's passport in 2013 should be enough for deter his application to enter the country.

"We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory", the company told Euronews.

'The Government and establishment can see I have public support, they can see I have the ability to fight back'.

"We do not take decisions like these lightly, and we work hard to be rigorous and fair-minded when reviewing PayPal accounts".

Robinson said PayPal had frozen his account, which he said included "a lot of money" for 180 days.

"We work hard to achieve the right balance and to ensure that our decisions are values-driven and not political".

Robinson was freed from prison in August after three leading judges quashed a contempt of court finding made at Leeds Crown Court. He is now banned from entering the US due to 2012 conviction for entering the country on a false passport, for which he received a 10-month prison sentence in the UK.

The platform has suspended and banned accounts before: after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting it banned Gab, a social media site with a far-right base used by gunman Robert Bowers, and it earlier banned right-wing news outlet InfoWars.

The Attorney General's Office has said all the material was being looked at "afresh" before a decision was made on whether to refer Robinson to the High Court for contempt.

PayPal's harsh move comes less than a week before Robinson is slated to give a speech at US Congress, which could earn him over $1.3 million. It remains to be seen whether he will be granted a visa.
