US President Donald Trump cancels UK visit in February
Washington, Jan 12 (IBNS): US President Donald Trump on Friday said he was canceling his trip to the UK next month.
Trump was expected to open a new $1bn (£738m) US embassy in London city of the UK, media reports said.
Trump cited the reason that he was not a "big fan" of the new embassy for cancelling his trip to the European country.
The embassy is set to be shifted from Mayfair to south London.
Trump even blamed former President Barack Obama and his administration for the 'bad deal' over the embassy.
Trump said he will not participate in the inauguration function of the embassy.
"Reason I canceled my trip to London is that 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. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!," Trump tweeted.
Downing Street declined to comment on Mr Trump's cancellation of the trip, BBC reported.
The dates of the visit have not been mentioned so far.;
