Trump’s too scared to come to the UK. Who says protest doesn’t work?

    President Trump react to a world leader who, afraid for his image, perhaps afraid for himself, refused to fulfill a promise to visit a loyal ally. He might fire off a tweet: “RAN from critics. A gift for crooked MSM. TOTAL pathetic loser!”

    But he won’t, because the loser is him. He got to hold hands with Theresa May when she visited Washington, but alas, that may be the high point of his cuddle-fest with her, and with us – because Trump, it now appears, is not keen on making his proposed state visit to Britain any time soon.

    He has apparently, in a recent telephone call to the prime minister, declared that he does not want to come if there are to be large-scale protests. The visit, we are told, is on hold.
    Some may be surprised by this. From the violence and menace that became features of his ugly campaign, it was easy to assume that he liked a bit of edge at his public appearances. But on those occasions, he knew he would always have the support of far-right thugs and hangers-on who could drown out dissent and, if need be, throw a few punches at protesters, passers-by, anyone who would dare to question him. That intimidation, unprecedented in recent history, would have been more difficult to replicate here; he could hardly bring his street fighters with him. There are only so many seats on Air Force One.
    Trump's state visit to Britain put on hold

    Maybe he didn’t fancy the trip without Theresa there to hold his hand; to keep him strong and stable, as it were. Even he might blanch – all the way from Tango orange to the whitest white – at the idea of skipping through the Downing Street rose garden hand in hand with Phil the spreadsheet Hammond or Boris Johnson.

    So we may be denied a spectacle then but will hopefully be saved from the distraction of Trump’s bandwagon when we may be fixating on at least one more general election, and we should certainly be focusing on the history-defining implications of Brexit.

    President Trump is simply not going to endorse an Obumma cock up.
    Where he sold a perfectly good embassy in a prime location.
    To one of a lower standard, out in the Boondocks.
    Although he has accepted a formal invitation, later in the year.
    President Trump has been dealing with these domestic leftards, in his homeland, from the moment, he won the election.
    Thus the Pome leftards, will be like water off a ducks back.

    As I’ve said before, Trump is welcome to come and open the new embassy. If he wants to chicken out, that’s his choice. Interestingly, contrary to Trumps whining about the new building, the U.S. Ambassador thinks the new Embassy is great and says it ‘hasn’t cost the U.S. a cent’. Awkward!

    The U.S. ambassador in London contradicted just about everything Trump said about the new embassy

    Haven't you promoted, his not welcome in the UK.

    Like all POTUS, he'll be well protected.

    Barack Obama to blame for cancelling trip to open new US embassy in Britain

    "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"

    The ambassador is a f* moron. It didn't cost the taxpayer "a cent" because the US sold property in London to pay for it! Wtf? It's not like the damned building was built for free. If I was a US taxpayer I'd be pissed at his comment.

    And to end up with something less, in the end too.

    Your mistake is in trying to provide facts to Trump Trolls. All they have to do is shout: "Fake news!" and continue to post their lies.

    London Mayor Sadiq Khan suggested the real reason why Trump cancelled his visit has nothing to do with embassy, but due to the prospective of him facing protests.

    Christian and Labour MP Marsha de Cordova represents Battersea, where the new American embassy stands. She told Sky News that Mr Trump isn't welcome in her constituency.

    "This isn't somebody that is about bringing nations and countries together.

    "Everything he does is being divisive and it's about separating people and setting groups and communities off against one another," she said.

    JTheM saidThe embassy was sold under the Bush administration, and Trump was aware of this when he gladly accepted the invite and promoted it for months. The reason he's not coming is because virtually all of London promised to come out and greet him if he did, and as he says, he refuses to come (his visit was already downgraded) if he might be protested. Little snowflake.

    By the way, two_meninlove is probably the only other idiot in the world (besides Trump) who would refer to south London as the "boondocks". He's obviously never been there, though Trump's problem is likely its ethnic diversity. Too many darkies for his comfort.
