Trump is expected to met with a mixture of cheers and boo’s when he eventually visits the UK. But it won’t be to open the new embassy in London.
The US President said he abandoned the ribbon-cutting trip to London because he felt the re-location was a “bad deal” for the embassy.
London Mayor, Sadiq Khan commented on this revelation by saying that Trump: “got the message” that he was not welcome in London.
Trump had this to say about his decision on Twitter: “Reason I cancelled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for ‘peanuts,’ only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO.”
Donald is expected to visit the new embassy for the US diplomats costing £750m ($1bn) in the Nine Elms area of Wandsworth, London.
President Trump has already visited France, Poland, Japan, and China as the elected President of the United States of America and he received very little or no protest at all.
Patriotic People’s Populist Media understands that US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is now going take on the duties of opening the modernistic new embassy.
British Prime Minister, Theresa May was the first leader in the world to visit Donald J. Trump after he was inaugurated as President of the USA, and Trump just last week said he “will be coming to this country”. So we will see if he visits the UK.
Sadiq Khan spent money provided by tax-payers to campaign against US President Trump’s election and has repeatedly attacked him and claimed that Trump is“Not welcome ” in London.
Just a few hours after Trump’s announcement, Sadiq Khan responded with a silly statement. This is what he wrote:
“Many Londoners have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda. It seems he’s finally got that message.
“This reinforces what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place.”
Nigel Farage MEP and former leader of UK Independence Party had this to say on BBC4 ’s Today programme: ” it was disappointing that Mr. Trump had called off his visit.”
“He’s been to countries all over the world and yet he’s not been to the one with which he’s closest,” he said.
“I would say it’s disappointing. But maybe, just maybe, Sadiq Khan, Jeremy Corbyn, and the Labour party planning mass protests, those optics, he didn’t like the look of.”
In November just last year, British Prime Minister Theresa May went on the attack over Trump re-tweeting tweets exposing violence committed by radical Muslims, even saying it was “wrong”. Trump replied like Trump would and said she needs to focus on terrorism in the United Kingdom.
Tory MP, Tom Tugendhat, Chairman of the Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee, had this to say to Radio 4, that Trump’s decision had nothing to do with the UK-US relations.
He then said “I think it more reflects the fact that other people criticise in French, Italian, and Korean and various other languages, and we criticise in English.
“And it’s much easier for him to read English. I don’t think he reads Arabic, but I may be wrong.”
Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary denied claims that the US Presidents state visit should be scrapped.
It followed claims in a brand new book, by Michael Wolff about the US President, Trump that he should use the state visit to “Trumpalise the Queen and Buckingham Palace”.
Former London Mayor now Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson told MP’s:
“I think Her Majesty the Queen is well capable of taking this American president – or indeed any American president – in her stride, as she has done over six remarkable decades.
“She has seen them come and she has seen them go.”
