Brits Tweet Real Reason
Trump Cancels London Trip
Crowds gather outside the U.S. Embassy in London to protest Trump
January 13, 2017
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!
Well, the Brits weren't buying that excuse, knowing full well that the sale of the U.S. Embassy in London was announced by the George W. Bush administration in October, 2008:
“We looked at all our options, including renovation of our current
building on Grosvenor Square,” said then-Ambassador Robert Tuttle
in October, 2008. “In the end, we realized that the goal of a modern,
secure and environmentally sustainable embassy could best be met
by constructing a new facility.”
This was a month before Barack Obama was even elected and at a price approximately $200 million less than what Trump stated, the Bush administration claiming that even if the building were to undergo a seven-year, $550 million refurbishment, it still would be unable to meet security requirements.
Recognizing that, once again, America's Emperor of Orange was lying double Whoppers with cheese in order to save face and avoid a hostile British public, they came up with some more "creative" reasons at #ICancelledMyTripToLondon:
#ICancelledMyTripToLondon Because London Bridge Is Falling Down.
Those Brits have awful infrastructure. Such a shithole. We have the best.
Really great infrastructure. Our bridges are the strongest.
Like, very very strong.
#ICancelledMyTripToLondon because Piccadilly Circus
doesn't even have clowns. FAKE NEWS!
#ICancelledMyTripToLondon because my advisers - great advisers,
the best - sang me that London's burning, and they're fetching the engines,
and there's fire fire. Probably because of their terror problem. UNSAFE.
#ICancelledMyTripToLondon because I found out they
sell giant buttons and my button's bigger
Clinton has a card shop there.
#ICancelledMyTripToLondon because it turns out there
is a London in Ohio, much closer, smart!
#ICancelledMyTripToLondon because that's just what I do. I cancel.
I'm an expert at cancelling. No one is better at cancelling than me.
