While the OP and Trump's reasoning for not going to the Embassy ribbon cutting are way off and generally just your opinion.

Trumplethinskin for the win!!

S&F just for that.

I guess people can't criticize Trump without calling him a name. Very mature argumentation skills.

Actually in this particular case the name was the only thing of value out of the whole OP...

It was actually a funny name....humor was the value.

Personally as a Brit I am a bit embarrassed that an elected head of state is likely to face protests by the whinging left wing unwashed masses.
Hell we've had visits from dictators welcomed with open arms by Queenie but the leader of the biggest investor in the UK is snubbed.

What the # has Trump done to Britain that is so bad?! Okay the golf course issues in Scotland but ffs hardly eating babies is it.

It grieves me that the politically correct whinge bags who will protest have won the day. Most people couldn't give a # if he comes, I don't, but we ain't crying on the internet so it seems that British people are against him.
I believe most people are not - and really don't care either way.

Don't worry protests isn't keeping him away the protestors would not have been allowed anywhere near the event. There is another reason perhaps he has golf scheduled? But know he could car less if grits protested it only helps him play the victim.

Lol it's obvious he's avoiding it because of the reception he's gonna face from protesters. They may not get near to him but tens of thousands of people protesting streets away would be all over national news here and frankly be an embarrassment.

The unwashed Labour supporters would be all over it, but they do not represent Britain, they are the opposition party in the UK, bit like your Dem's but more socialist.

Well he wasn't going to get a warm welcome anyway....

Funny though how he even manages to screw up saying he won't be visiting London.

The decision to move was under Bush. The sale was made under Obama, as Trump said. Liar.


Not sure why you're calling me a liar as nothing you've said is inconsistent with what I've said. From the OP:


Of course, like many many things Dodgy Don says, it's a lie premised in bull#. The reality is that the move was made because it was determined even after security upgrades, that the previous location was too vulnerable to terrorist attack.

And the decision was made at the end of Bush 43's second term, not during Obama's presidency.


I didn't say that the embassy was sold during the Bush administration, I said that the decision (to move) was made at the end of the Bush admin.

If you want to be technical, they also vetted the new location and went under contract to purchase it. Furthermore, they were already in the process of selling the original when Obama took office:

US in talks to develop London embassy



Daniel Thomas
January 21, 2009

The US government is in talks to sell its prominent Mayfair embassy in London to Chelsfield Partners, a property investment company backed by Qatar Investment Authority.

The group has emerged as a favourite to secure the sale of the imposing concrete building – with its distinctive golden eagle – in Grosvenor Square, which has more than 200 years of association with the US government. John Adams lived there in 1785 before his time as US president.

Final negotiations about price and rents are still progressing, with the block thought to be worth between £300m-£400m ($412m-$550m).

Other parties interested in the sale have been informed that they have not reached the next round. These include the Duke of Westminster’s property company Grosvenor, which was in partnership with Qatari Diar, and Hines, the company run by veteran US property developer Gerald Hines.


Note: Qatar Investment Authority is who bought it (QIA is the Qatari Sovereign Wealth Fund).

"lie premised in bull#"

The lie was that he wasn't going to London because the sale of the embassy was a "bad deal." The bull# was his lame attempt to frame the move as a bad deal and blame Obama for it.

Exactly. These Trump fans either have a short memory or they think their guy shouldn't be held to the same standards.

Oh & here's a list from January documenting 424 of Trump's insults just from Twitter (HERE). The list was last updated on the 3rd, so it probably needs to be updated again (each quoted insult in the article is a link to the actual tweet).

Stop trying to hold a random poster on the Internet to higher standards than you do the President. Thanks.

Funny you all call him thin skinned...
By a bunch of people who are forever triggered. The op is perpetually triggered and if applied the same moral standards to every president would find they are all lying and corrupt. But rather than growing as individuals you all jump on bandwagon...

You're right, we should just be more genuine and less subtle and just call it what it is, a s__thole president, with a relatively small (VERY small) insignificant following.

LOL All we have to do to "trigger" some of you (or Trump for that matter) is to say "Happy Holidays" or kneel during the anthem. Some of you would even get triggered if I wished you a happy Ramadan ("Ramadan Mubarak").

Comparing your criticism with Trump's tweet, nothing you have said is consistent with what he said.

You did say that the decision to move was was made at the end of the Bush admin, for whatever reason. The fact is Trump was speaking about the sale made under the Obama admin, not the decision to move.
