    President Trump cancels visit

    Donald Trump has cancelled a visit to the UK planned for February, saying he was not a "big fan" of the new US embassy in London he was due to open.

    The US president had been expected to open the new $1bn (738m) building, commissioned by his predecessor Barack Obama, which he said was a "bad deal".

    The ceremony may instead be hosted by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

    Mr Trump accepted the Queen's invitation for an official state visit when Theresa May met him last year.

    Downing Street declined to comment on Mr Trump's cancellation of February's working trip to the UK.

    In a tweet, Mr Trump said he was not happy that the Obama administration had sold the previous US embassy at Grosvenor Square in London for "peanuts".

    He said the new building in Vauxhall, south London, was in an "off location", adding: "Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!"

    Good save a fortune in security

    Trump is right about the new USA Embassy being a bad deal though.
    What a scandal.
    What was Obama thinking!

    The Embassy move was started by George Bush many years ago as the existing Embassy was no longer 'fit for purpose', I would assume that is was sold by going through the normal channels and was sold at Market Value.

    Obama wasn't thinking anything. The deal was done by George W Bush. As the Orange Oaf would say: "fake news!".

    It was certainly a bad deal for UK construction firms who were banned from tendering.

    I'm surprised anyone takes notice of ANYTHING the Moron says, it is a lasting Testimony to the Mental wellbeing of the U.S. electorate when they inflict the clown on THEMSELVES as well as the rest of the World.

    I reckon he thought the old Embassy was a shithole, I fully expect him to bring fire and fury to north Korea to wipe it away, maybe in his second or third term sometime.

    I think it's a shame he's not coming . He has spoken his
    mind and rattled the cage.
    A golden opportunity missed.
    Farage did similar and brought the subject to the table.
