Trump Cancels England Trip After Public Unwelcome; London Mayor’s Response Is Gold


With Donald Trump reportedly making horrible remarks about “sh*thole countries,” many in the global population aren’t happy with him. Granted, they were never pleased with him, to begin with; however, it was no surprise to find out Trump is no longer planning to travel to London.

Now, Trump would never admit that it was due to the massive protests that would have occurred. In fact, he tweeted a busted up excuse about some real estate deal he wasn’t happy with during the Obama administration. He tweeted:

‘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.’

Right. That’s not how diplomacy works, but whatever you say, Trump.

The Washington Post fact-checked that tweet and noted the decision to move the embassy was made during the George W. Bush administration due to a need for better security.

The mayor of London wasn’t upset by the decision. In fact, Sadiq Khan has previously said Trump’s trip to the U.K. should be canceled due to anti-Muslim retweets Trump posted on Twitter.

It didn’t take Khan, a Muslim, long to respond to Trump’s decision to cancel the London trip with his own statement he posted to Twitter.

‘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.

‘His visit next month would without doubt have been met by bass peaceful protests.

‘This just reinforces what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place.

‘Let’s hope that Donald Trump also revisits the pursuit of his divisive agenda.’

We don’t foresee Trump having a change of heart; however, Khan’s statement is a graceful, yet brutal, way of calling Trump’s excuse total bullgunk.

No one wants Trump around. The American people don’t even want Trump around. Theresa May’s invitation undoubtedly was a gesture of diplomacy; however, our feelings wouldn’t be hurt if she had canceled either. Not to mention, it’d be better for her politically. She’s already visited the U.S.

Though the majority of the protests would definitely be peaceful, the security that would be required to have Trump in London would most likely be a massive undertaking. With Trump’s recent comments allegedly made during a closed-door meeting on immigration, we don’t expect anyone to want Trump in their country.

Trump was recently reported to have said:

‘Why do we want all these people from shithole countries coming here?’

Honestly, no one probably wants to come to America anymore from anywhere. If Trump wants immigrants from “better” countries, then he perhaps needs to tone down the hateful rhetoric he spews almost daily.

We’re definitely headed towards a future of America first considering no one will want anything to do with us by the end of Trump’s term.
