    Trump cancels London visit. Lies about it

    Truth be known, Trump knew he was to be met with massive protests.

    Trump cancels London visit over 'bad' embassy deal

    US President Donald Trump won't be paying a visit to London to open his country's billion-dollar embassy, he tweeted Thursday.

    The trip, which would have been Trump's first to the UK as president, had not been officially announced but was expected next month.
    In the tweet, Trump blames his predecessor, former president Barack Obama, for the decision to sell the existing embassy, which he describes as "the best located and finest" in the city, for "'peanuts.'"
    "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!" the full tweet reads.The decision to move the embassy from Grosvenor Square to Nine Elms was made in 2008 under George W. Bush, not Obama. It would have been impossible to retrofit the aging concrete building with the security measures needed, officials said at the time.

    The old Embassy in Grosvenor Square is unique in being the only one not owned by the USA. The building is yours, but the site is leased from the Duke of Westminster, one of Britain's biggest land owners. He wouldn't sell, but did offer to swap for the return of his family landholdings in the USA, seized during the American Revolution. Virginia!

    Trump doesn't want to come to visit your most faithful ally because of the chilly welcome promised by the people. ( And the Queen won't let him ride in her golden coach!)

    Does anyone doubt the actial reason is because the president is a coward who is terrified of being booed?

    No one really believes him...but Trump has to say the words for the words to become real to him. That is all that really matters to Trump, is that he believes things are as they are.

    Yesterday Donald tweeted out that 66% of Americans think the economy is doing well. Since Trump takes full credit for the economy...his reality is that he gets the full credit.

    It is becoming clearer to me that Donald's realty is just that...He can care less who believes him. In Donald's mind...since he won the election America agrees with him.

    Donald's supporters will follow him because they have zero other options ...but even Donald doesn't really care what they think. He knows they will stick with him no matter what because of who he is

    Donald J. Trump.
