Trump blames Obama for 'peanuts' embassy deal

Sadiq Khan

"Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!" the USA president added.

Though Mrs May was the first world leader to visit the President in the White House after his inauguration last January, it's surprising - given the importance of the so-called "special relationship" between the two countries - that he's not yet travelled to these shores.

However, London's mayor Sadiq Khan, who has been a target of Mr Trump's twitter tirades, said the president had "got the message" that he was not welcome in the United Kingdom capital.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told parliament on Tuesday that he expected Queen Elizabeth II to meet Trump during his visit, saying she was "well capable of taking this or any American president in her stride".

U.S. President Donald Trump announced Friday he will no longer attend the opening of the new U.S. embassy in London, a move welcomed by critics in Britain who had planned mass protests. 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. "It seems he's finally got that message", Khan tweeted.

NZ win toss, batting first vs Pakistan
Pakistan need to win this game to keep the five-match series alive, with New Zealand now leading 3-0. His return should add spark to a line-up that has struggled to adapt to the conditions.

Prime Minister Theresa May invited Trump for a state visit when she met with him at the White House soon after he took office previous year.

Many Londoners have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda.

In Oct. 2008, the embassy was put up for sale and, the following year, sold to Gulf investor Qatari Diar. The sale was made because the British government wanted to list the building as one of historical importance, which would have made renovations and a potential sale more hard to do.

"I think we have to welcome the American President to Britain", Johnson said.

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 $1 billion construction was funded by the sale of other properties in London.
