U.S. embassy in London disagrees with Trump's reason for cancelling United Kingdom trip

Madame Tussauds moves wax Trump to London embassy after he cancels visit

A United Kingdom official said on Friday the invitation to Trump for a state visit, first extended by British Prime Minister Theresa May during her visit to the USA early in Trump's presidency, still stands: "The invitation for a State Visit has been extended and accepted", the official said.

"I am not a big fan of the Obama administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for "peanuts", only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars", he wrote. In short, the real estate mogul pegged it as a lousy deal.

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

The US embassy in London has released a statement correcting President Donald Trump on the price tag of its relocation after he said it claimed it was a "bad deal".

Hundreds have taken to social media to say Trump had backed out because he was "not welcome".

Kahn even questioned Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May's urgency to extend an invitation of a state visit to Trump in the first place. May's former chief of staff Nick Timothy suggested the president should try visiting a famous gay bar in the area.

In the meantime, the relationship between May and Trump has come under strain.

"London mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted Trump had "got the message" that he was not welcome, referring to the backlash over the Queen's invitation".

"His visit. would without doubt have been met by mass peaceful protests", Khan said.

But a full-blown state visit replete with golden carriages and pomp has been deferred amid the threat of huge anti-Trump protests. In December, Johnson said he was looking forward to welcoming the president. The official, who asked for anonymity to discuss a sensitive diplomatic matter, said Trump's decision reflected his belief that there was nothing to gain by going to Britain now. It's possible that plans for "mass protests, those optics he didn't like the look of".

According to new reports the US President will be snubbed from the royal wedding guest-list.

There's been speculation that Trump isn't happy that he may not be invited to the forthcoming wedding of Prince Harry and his American fiancee Meghan Markle.

"The US is one of our oldest and most valued allies, and our strong partnership will endure", May's spokesman Blain said.
