Trump cancels Britain trip blames Obama for Bush-era London embassy deal

The Daily Mail earlier reported the cancellation of Trump's United Kingdom visit in which he was expected to inaugurate the new embassy.

It said some officials believed he decided not to come because he felt the arrangements for the visit were too low-key and would instead send Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to open the embassy.

The White House said it will announce details "soon" of Trump's proposed visit to the UK.

The President was not due to meet the Queen until a full state visit at a later date, and a second source said the lack of "bells and whistles" and royal involvement next month visit may have discouraged him.

More than a year into his presidency, Trump has yet to visit London, with many Britons vowing to protest against a man they see as crude, volatile and opposed to their values on a range of issues.

He said that plans for protests by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour mayor of London, Sadiq Khan - who has traded barbs with Trump on Twitter - may have been a factor.

However, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan - who has clashed with the president in the past - said the U.S. president had "got the message" that many Londoners were staunchly opposed to his policies and actions. "It appears that President Trump got the message".

The situation deteriorated when Trump instigated a Twitter feud with London Mayor Sadiq Khan, raising hackles overseas delaying his visit indefinitely.

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

In a BBC interview on Sunday, May insisted that Trump "will be coming to this country" in spite of the opposition. Foreign heads of state should not automatically expect an invitation to the wedding, he added.

Mr. Trump hit back, telling the Prime Minister to focus on terrorism in the UK.

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

Armed police - who are often patrolling crucial embassies and key locations in London - were alerted by members of the public and subsequently discussed the initiative with the organizers on site.

In 2016 Qatari Diar won local authority approval to turn the Grade II listed building into a hotel.

Despite Mr Trump blaming his predecessor for moving the embassy from Grosvenor Square, its home for 80 years, the move was actually initiated by the George W Bush administration.

The U.S. Embassy in London is funded entirely from proceeds of sale from other U.S. government property in London, according to the State Department. The new building is walking distance from London's MI6 foreign intelligence headquarters.

US operations in London have been based in the Big Smoke's tony Mayfair neighborhood for more than 200 years, and have been headquartered at the modernist complex designed by Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen since the 1950s.

Although the decision was not made under Obama, Trump is correct to say that the sale of the embassy was completed during the Obama administration.
