President Trump cancels London trip, blames Obama for embassy deal

Source: NBC

LONDON ó President Donald Trump has canceled a trip to London to open the new U.S. Embassy, blaming the Obama administration for selling the old building in the city for "peanuts."

He criticised the move from "perhaps the best located and finest embassy," even though the relocation was initiated under George W. Bush's administration in 2008 and followed security concerns in the aftermath of terror attacks such as the 1998 embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya.

His decision was greeted with relief by London's Mayor Sadiq Khan who said Trump had "finally got the message" that he was not welcome in the capital.

5. Another Trump lie

The US never owned the land the Embassy was on, it is owned by the Duke of Westminster, the US was granted a lease!
Somebody should suggest Trump go back to school.

13. Isn't he supposed to be a real estate mogul?

Isn't that something that he should know with his GMOAT (greatest memory of all time) or his stable genius brain or whatever the hell his keeping his ears apart?

8. That's NOT the way it's being reported in the UK

Donald Trump has backed off the idea of visiting Britain next month to open the new US embassy in London amid fears of mass protests.

10. He is feeling BIGLY sad!

He had wanted a golden carriage ride like most other foreign leaders receive when he was planning a trip last Summer to England. Now he would be lucky to go and get a ride on a double decker bus while the British throw insults and other unpleasant things at him.

11. I wish some bots would start a "Trump is a coward!" memes.

I think a visit would be comedy gold.

The Queen won't invite him for dinner but maybe she and her subjects could moon him wherever he went.
