President cancels his visit to London – pulling out of £750m embassy opening amid fears he won’t be made welcome

Donald Trump has scrapped plans to visit Britain next month, the Mail understands.

The US President was expected to make his first trip to the UK since entering office, but Government officials have been told he has gone cold on the idea.

No new date has been offered, raising the prospect of a major diplomatic snub. One senior source suggested Mr Trump – who was expected to officially open the new US embassy in London – cancelled because he was unhappy about the arrangements and the scale of the visit.

The reversal comes despite Mr Trump telling Theresa May last month that he would come.

    Or he realized if he went the brits could help arrange an accident.

    • J. C.

      By ‘Brits’ you mean Mayor Khan and his buddies, right…???

  • From the article:

    “Officials have already moved into the £750 million US embassy near Battersea Power Station in south London.”

    That will leave a mark.

    Who’d thunk a Republican President wouldn’t be on for a visit to a Conservative PM.

    Obviously the special relationship isn’t that special to the Brits anymore.

    Hate to break the news but the U.K. has more to lose. Stunned wankers!

    • The UK is a mess and May is a disaster.

      • Maurice Miner

        Isn’t she? What alternatives are there?

        • Some people like Jacob Rees-Mogg. A ray of hope and sunshine, they say. I don’t follow this stuff in much detail.

        • WalterBannon

          a coup would be nice

    The goat humping mayor of London is probably jumping in celebration. My only question is why would Trump want to visit an Islamic shithole like London?

    • dapto

      Yes it would be like doing a state visit to Sudan the cost in protection would be astronomical.

      He could announce the moving of America’s newest, new UK Embassy to Jerusalem, and then go home.

  • dapto

    Dan’t blame him a May is part of the EU SOROS NAZI collective, All you have to do is see how she is fighting against carrying out brexit.
    And the London Mayor might fund hit men on every corner so a wise decision President Trump.
    Next thing he should do is cut all ties to Britain this time let them rot in hell no bailing them out unlike in WW2

    • Lightstream

      I don’t blame him either. He’d receive nothing but scorn over there.

    • Bla Bla

      Heh – especially considering they have something like 28000 jihadis running around the UK now. It’s only time before those goat humpers attempt a take over and the UK comes crying to Uncle Sam for support – to hell with them.

      What a waste of effort it would be.

  • simus1

    President Trump will likely have much more important things to deal with elsewhere.
    Or maybe May is due to be tossed ASAP.

  • Drunk by Noon ✓

    Delay, indefinitely, the opening the new embassy.
    Close the old one.
    Leave it that way for a few years.

    • Watchman

      Move the US embassy in Britain to Jerusalem.

  • Bla Bla

    Eat it Clamity May… Weak, ineffective, and incompetent, very much like our ‘leadership’ over here.

  • Barrington Minge

    Here in the UK we are just not into “stable genius’s” that much.

    • J. C.

      The election of Saddiq Khan as London’s Mayor pretty much proved to the world that the UK prefers unstable fools…

  • ed

    who want`s to be stabbed shot ,have acid thrown in their face ,robbed or killed in mayor khans third world shite hole which London has become [ ed uk ]

  • HalcyonDaze

    Smart decision. This is a no win win situation for him. He goes and he gets vilified by the liberal left in both countries, he doesn’t go and he gets vilified by the liberal left in both countries. Either way he’s feked so best to just sit at home and take pot shots at Steve Bannon’s integrity.

    I hope the UK abandons nuclear weapons before they become a caliphate.

  • Editor

    President Trump has been vilified by every lefty politician and leftist rag in the UK for over a year now but God forbid the Brits feel a “diplomatic snub”. Sod off ya wankers!
