US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is now expected to perform the ribbon-cutting for the new complex which, contrary to Trump's tweet, cost $1 billion (€829.5 million) to construct.

Mr Trump had been due to come to London to open the new $A1 billion embassy, but was said to have abandoned the idea as he felt unhappy about the scale of the visit and the arrangements made.

The president wrote he was nixing the trip - initially scheduled for next month - because he is displeased with the location of the new embassy and its price tag.

In a Twitter message shortly before midnight Thursday, Trump implicitly rejected reports that the trip - never announced but widely assumed to be in February - was being scrapped over concerns that the USA leader would be met with widespread protests.

There had been strong opposition to the invitation, at first over Trump's travel ban on Muslim-majority countries, and then most recently his re-tweet of a far-right organisation, Britain First.

"Nope it's because nobody wanted you to come", Miliband wrote in a reply to the USA leader's tweet.

During the Queen's Speech at the State Opening of Parliament last summer, there was no mention of a visit - although a Downing Street spokesman said an invitation had been "extended and accepted".

Several protests groups had planned gatherings in London during Trump's visit to protest against him for his remarks.

As well as the visit to open the embassy, Mr Trump is supposed to be in line for a state visit.
