President Donald Trump cancelled a trip to London scheduled for next month to open a new embassy.
He said he did not want to “endorse” a bad deal in which the former embassy was sold for less than he felt it should have been.
“[The] 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,” Trump said in a tweet. “Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon – NO!” he added.
