Trump cancels February's visit to UK

Hamburg

As President Donald Trump waxed lyrical about why he would be axing plans to travel to Britain to open a new American embassy, a waxwork stand-in appeared more than ready to oversee the launch.

President Donald Trump said Thursday evening that he will not be visiting London next month due to his dissatisfaction with the "bad deal" the Obama administration agreed to over the next location for the US embassy. "Wanted me to cut the ribbon-NO!"

The president's comments came after several British outlets reported that he was considering foregoing his trip to the new embassy's opening next month.

The new Nine Elms site, near Battersea in London, is due to open on 16 January.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday that the United States is "still working with our UK allies to find a date for a visit for the invitation that was offered and accepted".

Boris Johnson has dismissed critics of Donald Trump as "puffed up pompous popinjays", hours after the USA president cancelled a visit to London to open the new American embassy.

But we are capable of (militarily) handling this assertiveness along the border...the terrain is to our advantage", he said. Pakistan is sending messages regularly to return to ceasefire.

Former UK Labor Party leader Ed Miliband echoed Khan's accusation that the visit was canceled out of concern of opposition. It seems he's finally got that message. "We looked at all our options, including renovation of our current building on Grosvenor Square", Tuttle said in 2008.

In late 2017 he embroiled himself in an unprecedented spat with British Prime Minister Theresa May, attacking her over terrorism in the United Kingdom after he retweeted videos shared by a far-right anti-Muslim extremist from Britain - sparking universal condemnation from British politicians.

Asked if the Prime Minister shared the President's view of south London, Theresa May's spokesman replied: "It is a vibrant and important part of London, home to many businesses". (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais).

However, Tory MP Tom Tugendhat, Chairman of the Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee, told Radio 4 that Mr. Trump's decision has nothing to do with the UK's relationship with the U.S.

Though Trump's official reason is about the embassy, large street protests are thought to have weighed heavy on the USA president's mind.

Nearly two million people signed a petition in 2017 calling for the president's invitation to be withdrawn.
