Just days after President Trump surprised his political base by revealing that he would attend the globalist boondoggle also known as the World Economic Forum in Davos later this month accompanied by nearly every key player in his administration, the president announced on Twitter late last night that he had canceled a February state visit to London.
His excuse: Trump inexplicably claimed that he was canceling his trip because he didn’t want to cut the ribbon at the new US embassy in southwest London because the Obama administration had made a “bad deal.”
“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,” he wrote just before midnight local time. “Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!”

This latest cancellation comes after State Department bureaucrats quietly quashed an informal visit that was scheduled to take place this month. At the time, Trump was angry at May and the rest of the British political establishment for criticizing Trump’s controversial retweets of several videos that his political opponents branded as “Islamophobic”. The tweets were initially sent by a British far-right group.
It also followed a Washington Post report that Trump disparaged El Salvador, Haiti and other African and South American countries as “shitholes” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of Senators.
