“Thanks a LOT, Obama” —
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 decision was not, in fact, made by the Obama administration but was made by George W. Bush in October 2008. And it was made for security reasons — by UK law, the U.S. embassy could not be altered to meet security needs. It is a heritage site and part of the original deal to make it the US Embassy included that it could not be altered.
“The London Mayor, a long-term opponent of Mr Trump, said the visit would have been hampered by “mass peaceful protests” as the Presidents’s controversial views were the “polar opposite” of the city’s values.”
Perhaps Preznint Shithole better get used to it, protests are going to follow him everywhere he goes except for Merde-A-Go-Go (and even then I be the staff flips him off behind his back).
