washington - US President Donald Trump refuses to open the new embassy of his country in London next month. He accused the previous government of having concluded a 'bad deal' when moving the diplomatic post.

Trump complained that the sale of the old embassy resulted in 'peanuts' while the building was in a prime location in the British capital. In addition, according to the president, a new building had to be put down for a 'lesser location' for '1.2 billion dollars'. 'They wanted me to cut a ribbon. No! ', He twittered.

According to the BBC, the British government did not want to respond to the decision of Trump, which completely renounces the planned visit to London. The broadcaster reported that it looked at possibilities for a state visit to take place later in the year. Trump has not yet visited the country, where activists have indicated that they want to welcome him with large-scale protests.
