    Other presidents wear flight jackets with the presidential seal on it. TRUMP? He should be in a strait jacket.

    Donald Trump could have been the first US President charged under the UK anti-hate speech laws.







    Donald Trump state visit to UK could be delayed over anti-Muslim videos row with Theresa May, Amber Rudd hints
    Mr Trumpís initial decision to retweet the material sparked a fierce backlash in the UK and his subsequent attack on the PM has hardened calls for the Government to withdraw the invitation of a state visit.

    It was BUSH who ordered the Embassy moved in 2008...

    "Here's how the deal went down:

    1. The decision to move the U.S. embassy from its Grosvenor Square location was made in the second term of the Bush administration. The modernist concrete structure, designed by Finnish architect Eero Saarinen and opened in 1960, was proving harder to secure in an age of terrorist threats. Part of Grosvenor Square had already been closed to vehicles in order to protect the building, and its inadequacies were quickly becoming obvious.

    The London embassy is also believed to have been the only one in the world that was not owned outright by the U.S. government. In a quirk of UK property law, the land on which the old embassy stood was owned by the property company of a British aristocrat, the Duke of Westminster, and leased to the U.S., which merely owned the bricks and mortar above.

    So in 2008, before Obama took office, the decision was made to purchase outright a site in the regeneration neighborhood of Nine Elms, in the Battersea district of London.

    "In the end, we realized that the goal of a modern, secure and environmentally sustainable embassy could best be met by constructing a new facility," former U.S. ambassador Robert Tuttle said of the decision to move."

    Nice try... but we all know, it's Obama's fault, and Trump is fixing it.
    Stick with the narrative, if you want the Trumpsters to join your conversation.. they don't take well to facts.

    The SHOTUS (shit hole of the United States) will "Nevah, evah" step outside a "safe" venue.

    He needs to go to Norway, visit some "no-go" zones.

    It would be fun to see those reporters tear him limb from limb like they just did to the ambassador, lol. )

    Thx

    Youíre all laughing. Thereís a G7 in Quebec this year.

    THIS YEAR.


    Every Quebec riot cop is probably out looking to buy a new boat, or adding a den. Thatís some serious overtime coming their way.

    Don't think he's afraid of being booed, being booed gives him glee, attention is attention, bad or good, he wants and loves it. As far as the UK, he may be afraid some muslim will shoot or bomb his ass.

    He won't visit a place that cant guarantee a warm friendly welcome. Places that can do that are few and far between, and usually dictatorships.
