Donald Trump Cancels His Trip To London, Blames Obama

The State Department agreed to sell the existing embassy building on Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, to Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Co.in 2009 to fund the relocation.

Mr Trump was also scheduled to hold talks with Mrs May in No 10, with February 26 and 27 marked in the diary.

Downing Street has not set a date for a state visit yet, but it had pencilled in a "working visit" to coincide with the embassy opening.

A design competition will ensure the new facility reflects the best of modern design, incorporates the latest in energy-efficient building techniques, and celebrates the values of freedom and democracy.

Government sources suggested that Washington had signalled that secretary of state Rex Tillerson would instead open the multimillion-pound embassy.

Last month, doubt was cast over whether he would come at all after the prime minister criticised him for retweeting three videos from far-right group Britain First.

Earlier, the Daily Mail reported UK Government officials were told by their American counterparts that the USA president has gone cold on the idea.

They announced in an October 2, 2008 release - a month before Barack Obama's election to his first term - that the USA had entered into an agreement with real estate company Ballymore to acquire the new embassy site in southwest London and that the old site "will be offered for sale nearly immediately".

Trump was expected to travel to the United Kingdom next month to open a new USA embassy in southwest London, as protest groups threatened to stage the "biggest demonstration in British history".

"You are making America great again" President Moon Jae-in told Mr Trump - echoing his famous campaign slogan.

Details of the official state visit by Trump, planned for later this year, are still being ironed out.

The president and the prime minister have a very, very good relationship.
