People are calling out Trump's bare-faced lies for cancelling United Kingdom visit

People are calling out Trump's bare-faced lies for cancelling United Kingdom visit

But not everyone was buying his excuse and people were quick to call out that his reason made little sense, especially as it was not President Obama's administration who selected the site.

President Donald Trump has canceled a trip to London where he had been expected to open the new $1 billion US embassy, avoiding protests promised by political opponents.

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

Trump claimed he had scrapped the visit because he didn't want to open the new USA embassy in the British capital, but Khan suggested the real reason was because he wouldn't be welcome.

US President Donald Trump has dropped his plans to inaugurate the new US embassy in London next month, according to key sources. The President is understood to be sending US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson instead.

After the Prime Minister criticised Mr Trump for sharing far-Right videos without verifying the claims contained in the footage, he hit back attacking her directly on Twitter.

"I think Her Majesty the Queen is well capable of taking this American president - or indeed any American president - in her stride, as she has done over six remarkable decades", Mr. Johnson said.

Former Labour leader Ed Miliband replied to Trump's tweet shortly after it was posted, challenging the assertion that it was Trump's dissatisfaction with the deal that had derailed the visit.

The Daily Mail says the "lack of "bells and whistles" and royal involvement" may also have "discouraged" Trump from coming to London.

Donald Trump has cancelled his planned United Kingdom visit amid fears of mass protests according to widespread reports.

The controversy sparked a diplomatic spat between Theresa May and Mr Trump, after Mrs May condemned the US President's actions.

The White House has yet to respond to the reports, while Downing Street declined to comment on the particular case.

This development is particularly shocking because Obama hadn't been elected when the decision was made to move the embassy from Grosvenor Square to Nine Elms.

Khan called Britain First, the far-right party Trump retweeted, "a vile, extremist group that exists exclusively to sow division and hatred in our country".
