Trump’s Visit To UK Cancelled After He Angers The Entire Country

1 December 2017

Diplomats have decided to cancel Donald Trump’s planned “working visit” to the UK after the entire country has spoken out against Trump for his recent retweeting of a neo-fascist organization. On top of that, Trump can’t seem to stop insulting British leader Theresa May online, causing the country to tell him “thanks, but no thanks” on the visit. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what this means for the United States.

That was still a bit premature then. However, now …

From daily The Independent in Britain today

Nigel Farage: Donald Trump cancelled UK visit over public protests led by likes of Jeremy Corbyn and Sadiq Khan

by Joe Watts

Nigel Farage has blamed Jeremy Corbyn and London Mayor Sadiq Khan for backing protests that could have deterred Donald Trump from visiting the UK.

The ex-Ukip leader hit out after news broke overnight that the US President had cancelled a visit planned for next month to open his country’s new embassy in London.

As well as the visit to open the embassy, Mr Trump is supposed to be in line for a state visit. But the idea appears to have been put on ice amid concern about demonstrations.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Mr Farage said: “It’s disappointing. He’s been to countries all over the world and yet he’s not been to the one with whom he’s closest. I think it’s disappointing.

“Maybe just maybe Sadiq Khan, Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party planning mass protests, maybe those optics he didn’t like the look of.”

News that Mr Trump had ditched his visit in February to open the new US embassy at Battersea was broken by the Daily Mail, which confirmed no new date had been offered for the trip.

With demonstrators having threatened mass protests if Mr Trump ever set foot in the country, the President himself took to Twitter to explain the cancellation.

He claimed it was because the Obama administration had made a “bad deal” by moving the embassy, though official records show it was the previous Bush administration that had signed it off.

Mr Trump is understood to be sending US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson instead and while Downing Street has declined to comment, No 10 is aware the “working visit” had been postponed.

Theresa May‘s office also continues to insist that the offer of a state visit to Mr Trump, with the pomp, ceremony and meeting with the Queen that it entails, still stands.

It was first made when the Prime Minister visited Washington last year and was pencilled in for later in 2017, but was pushed back as concern grew about protests, particularly at Buckingham Palace.

In the intervening period Mr Trump strained relations further with a series of controversial comments about the UK, including attacking Mr Khan’s handling of terror strikes and falling out with Ms May after promoting propaganda from a British far-right group.

TRUMP IS CANCELING HIS TRIP TO LONDON And blaming Barack Obama, although British media report it may have been because the White House feared protests. Some Londoners seem less than heartbroken by the news.

Downing Street has accused Jeremy Corbyn and Sadiq Khan of jeopardising relations with America for telling Donald Trump he is not welcome in Britain, after the US president called off a planned visit to London in the face of likely mass protests. In a move that reinforces Theresa May’s determination to remain publicly close to Trump, despite accusations of racism and his liaisons with the far right, Downing Street backed an accusation from the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, that Labour was risking transatlantic ties: here.

THE PRESIDENT SLAMMED PROTECTIONS FOR IMMIGRANTS FROM HAITI AND AFRICAN NATIONS Which he reportedly described as “s***hole countries” before suggesting he’d prefer to see more immigrants from countries like Norway. Few Republicans have acknowledged the comment, but some are speaking out. GOP Rep. Mia Love, the first Haitian-American woman elected to Congress, is among the politicians calling for an apology — “My parents came from one of those countries,” she said. The Norwegians aren’t happy either.  [HuffPost]
