Waxwork Trump mocks President outside US embassy

Waxwork Trump mocks President outside US embassy

Announcing on Friday that he would not come for the embassy's inauguration, US President Donald Trump called it an "off location" and said the former embassy had been sold to Qatar for "peanuts".

Mr Trump said he thought the embassy's move from Grosvenor Square in the prestigious Mayfair district of central London to an "off location" at Nine Elms, south of the Thames, was a "bad deal".

He blamed the decision to cancel his trip on the relocation of the United States embassy from Grosvenor Square.

But Mr Khan said the U.S. president's visit would have been met with "mass peaceful protests". "Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!".

Trump's trip was not the full state visit offered by prime minister Theresa May, for which no date has so far been set.

Even Trump's biggest supporters suggested that protests played a role in his decision not to visit.

The new U.S. Embassy in London has been described as a "fortress."

The sale of the old embassy actually began under the George W. Bush administration.

"This reinforces what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place".

Trump's friend and Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage said the president may have been put off by the prospect of his visit being overshadowed by street demonstrations from people protesting about his views.

The Foreign Secretary took to Twitter to launch the astonishing attack on his City Hall predecessor, just hours after Khan said Trump had "got the message" from that he isn't welcome in London.

Downing Street later said the "strong and deep" partnership between Britain and the USA "will endure".

But the American presence has not been appreciated by the embassy's neighbors in recent years.

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

However, Tory MP Tom Tugendhat, Chairman of the Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee, told Radio 4 that Mr. Trump's decision has nothing to do with the UK's relationship with the U.S. The U.S. spent £8 million (about $11 million) on security upgrades following the September 11, 2001, attacks, because local residents protested having to live near what they felt was a terror target.

State Department releases of the new glass cube have also praised its energy self-sufficiency and miniscule carbon footprint.

During May's USA trip a year ago, she extended an invitation to Trump to make a formal state visit - which includes pomp, pageantry and a banquet with Queen Elizabeth. The old site was sold in 2009 and ground was broken at the new location in 2013.

The Dutch embassy is also planning to move to the area and luxury apartment buildings are sprouting up, including one which will have a glass-bottomed swimming pool spanning a void between two towers. It seems he's finally got that message.
