Trump cancels London trip for embassy opening

US embassy in London corrects Trump over 'bad deal'

Mr Trump had been expected to open the new American embassy in the capital but has scrapped the visit after clashing with the mayor of London and Theresa May.

Khan noted Trump's cancellation "reinforces what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place".

The decision to acquire a new London embassy site on the south bank of the Thames was announced in 2008 under Republican president George W Bush along with the plans to put the Grosvenor Square site in Mayfair up for sale.

"Big protests if he came to cut ribbon".

Theresa May and Donald Trump's relationship was strained previous year after she condemned him for sharing far-Right videos without verifying the claims contained in the footage, he hit back attacking her directly on Twitter.

Many politicians in the United Kingdom said the real reason for the cancellation was to avoid the growing number of anti-Trump protests planned for the president's visit. He said the opening of the embassy was a matter for the USA government.

"The US is one of our oldest and most valued allies and our strong and deep partnership will endure", the spokesman said.

Almost two million British people added their names to an online petition in 2017 calling for Trump's visit to be downgraded from a state visit to avoid embarrassing the queen.

"Let's hope that Donald Trump also revisits the pursuit of his divisive agenda".

"It seems he's finally got that message".

Boris Johnson then skewered the "pompous" Mayor for putting the "crucial relationship" between the United Kingdom and USA "at risk".

The US flag was lowered for the final time on Tuesday from the top of the former 600-room embassy in Grosvenor Square, where US General Dwight Eisenhower had his headquarters during World War Two.

Woody Johnson, Trump's appointed U.S. ambassador to Britain, told reporters last month that moving to the new site at Nine Elms reflected "the global outlook of the USA going forward in the 21st century: rather looking out, than looking in".

Residents in the up and coming area of Nine Elms got to see the US President after all when the world-famous museum relocated their life-size waxwork of the former reality star from Baker Street to outside the new $1 billion US embassy.

The new embassy is a veritable fortress set back at least 30 meters from surrounding buildings - mostly newly erected high-rise residential blocks - and incorporating living quarters for US Marines permanently stationed inside.
