Trump canceled his visit to London. He blamed the cancelation on Obama because he was not a fan of the real estate deal that resulted in the new embassy. In my view, the real reason is that he was going to be greeted by massive protests.
- Trump had already alienated United Kingdom leaders by retweeting videos about Muslims from right-wing extremists in November 2017
Liberals and conservatives in the UK criticized Trump at the time.
- Trump blamed Obama for the embassy move
The decision was made by George W. Bush. This is just another Trump lie about Obama.
According to the Associated Press, “Then-Ambassador Robert Tuttle said: “We realized that the goal of a modern, secure and environmentally sustainable embassy could best be met by constructing a new facility.”” This article points out other things Trump said about the move which are not correct. His ambassador to the UK took a different approach.
Trump continues to alienate allies while he sucks up to Russia. Sad!
