President Trump has announced that he cancelled a trip to London this week because it would’ve coincided with the opening of the new US Embassy to the United Kingdom, an embassy he opposes, and blamed President Obama for.
Trump complained the old embassy was better, and that Obama moved it to an “off location” and sold the old one for “peanuts.” He says it was a bad deal and he wouldn’t cut the ribbon on the new building.
In reality President Bush started the embassy move, supposedly for security reasons, with State Department people saying upgrades to the old site would cost too much, even though it was in a much fancier area.
The White House followed this up with a statement denying a trip was canceled, despite President Trump explicitly saying “I canceled my trip to London,” They insist he accepted the idea of visiting in a future date.
British officials insisted that President Trump remains welcome to visit at some point in the future, while London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan said it was a relief Trump wasn’t coming, and that he doesn’t consider Trump particularly welcome.

Seems like the embassy deal was originally signed off by Bush.
Too bad “Baghdad Bob” is dead, he would have been Trump’s ideal spokesperson
Harry, you can now invite Obama to your wedding.
Why go to a shithole country when you are not particularly welcome?
The Embassy is in London: a nest of Islamic intolerance and ruled by a Muslim mayor.
“…supposedly for security reasons…”
Profiles in courage. Set the world on fire and then coward behind as much concrete as possible.
That didn’t fool anyone. America, laughingstock of the world. President Wackadoo Moments couldn’t face millions of protesters. Armed with the traditional rotten tomatoes.
