Trump 'got the message' over United Kingdom visit: London Mayor

Protestors being escorted out of London Mayor Sadiq Khan's speech at the Fabian Centre in Central London

"It appears that President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance", Khan said in a statement.

US President Donald Trump has cancelled his trip to Britain due to disappointment over a "bad" US embassy. "We will not allow US-UK relations to be endangered by some puffed up pompous popinjay in City Hall". "But maybe Sadiq Khan, Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party planning mass protests, maybe those optics he didn't like the look of".

But soon afterwards, Johnson's comments were endorsed.

He blamed President Barack Obama's administration for selling the old site for "peanuts" and building the new embassy in an "off location".

The Samsung Q9S and other models of 8K TVs equipped with AI technology are expected to be launched during the second half of 2018. This TV has a modular design since it's made up of smaller borderless displays, all of which are interchangeable.

The State Department, however, announced plans for relocating the London embassy in 2008, while George W. Bush was still president, because of concerns about security following the September 11 terror attacks.

"This reinforces what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place". "Many Londoners have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda", Khan said on Friday.

He took to Twitter to say his first trip to Britain since being elected past year was off amid claims he feared mass street protests and blamed his predecessor Barack Obama for selling off the former embassy in Grosvenor Square "for peanuts".

"The invitation for a state visit has been extended and accepted", the official said.

False Alarm Confirmed, No Missile Threat
But officials soon confirmed that it was a false alarm. "There needs to be tough and quick accountability and a fixed process". The message was sent amid heightened nuclear tensions between the United States and North Korea.

Some British lawmakers questioned whether would be welcome after he re-tweeted videos from a far-right British group and criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan following a terror attack previous year.

After Trump declared his disapproval with London's new United States embassy as the reason for cancelling his visit to the city, Madame Tussauds placed a waxwork of the President outside the building, CNN reported.

While the embassy statement emphasized that the United States was able to erect a new building project through a property swap, without using taxpayer funds, Trump might have a point on the economics of selling the old embassy in London's tony Mayfair district.

The president's complaints about the new embassy building were contradicted by the U.S. ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, who was appointed by Trump. In December, Johnson said he was looking forward to welcoming the president. The move, which ended a 200-year US association with London's Grosvenor Square, was part of American efforts to secure diplomatic staff in compounds - a push tied to terror concerns after al Qaeda bombings at two USA embassies in East Africa a decade ago.
