President Trump Cancels Attending Embassy Opening

President Trump Cancels Attending Embassy Opening

But Trump said his decision, announced in a late-night tweet, was due to concerns about the embassy's move from the elite Mayfair district to a far less fashionable area south of the Thames.

Though Mrs May was the first world leader to visit the President in the White House after his inauguration last January, it's surprising - given the importance of the so-called "special relationship" between the two countries - that he's not yet travelled to these shores.

Prime Minister Theresa May was the first foreign leader to visit Trump after his inauguration in January a year ago, and they were filmed emerging from the White House holding hands. She later said Trump took her hand in a gentlemanly gesture as they walked down a ramp.

The British government has extended Mr. Trump an invitation for a state visit.

"We were only at the embassy for about 25 minutes, but there were some immediate reactions", she said.

There had been speculation that the trip would be merged with a planned state visit to Britain offered to Trump by Prime Minister Theresa May, which has met with strong public and political opposition.

"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 poor opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance", Khan said. "It seems he's finally got that message", Khan tweeted.

The American flag was this month removed from Grosvenor Square where the USA embassy has been based since 1938 with the area known as "Little America" during World War Two, when the square also housed the military headquarters of General Dwight D. Eisenhower. The sale was made because the British government wanted to list the building as one of historical importance, which would have made renovations and a potential sale more hard to do. In December, Ambassador Woody Johnson said he was looking forward to welcoming the president when he visited, adding: "I think he will be very impressed with this building and the people who occupy it".

In response to the cancellation, London Mayor Sadiq Khan celebrated the news, saying the US president "is not welcome here".

There had always been security concerns about the Grosvenor Square site, dating back to the late 1990s after attacks on U.S. embassies in Africa.
