A planned “working visit” to the United Kingdom by U.S. President Donald Trump has been cancelled following Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to publicly upbraid him over Twitter retweets.
The prime minister said the president was “wrong” to share videos purporting to show Muslims committing acts of violence while on a visit to the Middle East, where she is attempting to curry favour with local dictators.
President Trump did not hesitate to rebuke the British politician, telling her: “Don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!”
News that the president has cancelled a planned “working visit” to open the new U.S. embassy in London came in the early hours of the following morning.
“The idea of a visit has obviously been floated, but not December and not January. I would not expect a Trump visit in January,” a senior U.S. diplomat told The Telegraph.
