US embassy in London corrects Trump over 'bad deal'

Khan said that Trump's visit would have been hampered by mass protests as the U.S. President views are opposite of the city's value, reported the Independent.

Some U.K. lawmakers had said Trump was not welcome in Britain after he re-tweeted videos from a far-right British group and criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan following a terror attack previous year.

The new United States embassy building is seen during a press preview near the River Thames in London, December 13, 2017.

"We looked at all our options, including renovation of our current building on Grosvenor Square", then-Ambassador Robert Tuttle said.

US President Donald Trump has cancelled his trip to Britain due to disappointment over a "bad" US embassy.

All together, the apps-which include gaming- and drawing-related titles-were downloaded between 3 million and 7 million times. In December, YouTube said that Google was planning to increase the number of staff reviewing videos to more than 10,000.

"The project has been executed within the established budget", an embassy spokesman said, adding it had "considered more than 50 sites" in London ahead of the move, which cost up to $1billion and "used no tax dollars".

Prime Minister Theresa May's office took issue with Trump's unflattering portrait of the new site as an "off location".

A Trump visit has been on the cards since British Prime Minister Theresa May visited the United States a few days after Trump's inauguration a year ago.

There is likely some relief in the British government at Trump's decision, which would have caused at the very least a major policing operation.

"The invitation for a state visit has been extended and accepted", the official said.

Liverpool Couldn't Stop Coutinho Exit, Says Klopp
Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez and Monaco ace Thomas Lemar have both been touted as potential replacements for Coutinho . He will, undoubtedly, have a key role to play on Sunday when Manchester City arrive in town protecting their unbeaten record.

"Many Londoners have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda", Khan said on Friday.

Upon hearing the news that Donald Trump would not be opening the U.S. embassy in London next month, waxwork museum Madame Tussauds stepped in to provide an alternative.

The president, however, had become fed up with all the criticism and considered it an affront not only to his administration, but to his country, a White House official said yesterday.

The mayor, a member of the main opposition Labour party, said there would have been "mass peaceful protests", and that it had been a "mistake" to invite him. But Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson blamed Khan and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn for discouraging the US leader from coming.

But Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson suggested that the decision was prompted by opposition to Mr Trump in Britain, and warned that such critics "seem determined to put this crucial relationship at risk".

The offer is limited to the iPhone SE , iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus . Apple recently admitted that it starts slowing down older iPhones as they age and their battery health gets reduced.

Relations between the United States and its closest ally have been tested repeatedly since Trump took office nearly a year ago.
