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

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan

Trump confirmed late Thursday that he canceled his trip to cut the ribbon at the new USA embassy, saying that he is "not a big fan" of an Obama-era real estate sale involving the new site.

President Trump claims he cancelled his forthcoming visit to Britain to open the new United States embassy because "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".

However, London's mayor Sadiq Khan, who has been a target of Mr Trump's twitter tirades, said the president had "got the message" that he was not welcome in the United Kingdom capital.

He says the embassy's move to a site along the River Thames was a bad deal, tweeting: "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". "Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!"

U.S. President Donald Trump announced Friday he will no longer attend the opening of the new U.S. embassy in London, a move welcomed by critics in Britain who had planned mass protests.

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.

The 95-year-old was also accused in the first Daily Mail report of groping nurses and walking around naked in their presence. A representative for the new nursing company caring for Lee said he has been "polite, kind and respectful" to the nurses.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, with whom Trump has butted heads frequently, responded positively to the news that the president would not be visiting.

The US flag was lowered for the final time on Tuesday from the top of the former 600-room embassy in Grosvenor Square, where US General Dwight Eisenhower had his headquarters during World War Two.

May's spokesman told reporters Trump was welcome in London and that the invitation to visit had been accepted, although no date agreed.

"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.

"I think we have to welcome the American President to Britain", Johnson said.

A model of US President Donald Trump from the Madame Tussaud's waxwork attraction more than four miles away was placed outside the new embassy building, due to open for business on January 16, after the president's announcement.
