Trump’s Statement On Canceled London Visit Is Full Of Falsehoods

He blames Obama for the move, even though it was first planned under Bush.
“Shithole countries? Words worthy of a racist-in-chief | Richard Wolffe

Donald Trump has made no secret of his bigotry. The sad truth thing is his comments about Haiti and Africa reflect the USs historic racismDonald Trump knows a thing or two about shitholes  the label he apparently bestowed on El Salvador, Haiti and various African nations during an Oval Office meeting about immigration. His own father was reportedly so ashamed of coming from Germany widely considered to be a shithole by Americans fighting in two world wars that he pretended for most of his life that he was Swedish.These Aryan dreams glowed all blond and bright through Trumps seminal book, The Art of the Deal, in which he claimed his father arrived as a child from Sweden like some kind of Nordic dreamer.

Why reading too much into Trump’s cancelled UK trip is unwise

There is something the UK is not getting right in its relations with the US, but then caprice is seen as a strength by this US presidentIn a sprawling interview with the Wall Street Journal this week, Donald Trump said: I dont know what the word permanent means, adding that he could give 20 examples in his life of deep enmities and then all of a sudden somebodys my best friend.

Caprice in his alliances and policy-making is clearly seen as a strength by the US president. The former British foreign secretary Jack Straw, for instance, said a decision expected on Friday on whether to lift the sanctions waiver on the Iranian nuclear deal came down to the flip of a coin in the Oval Office.

The fabulous new US embassy is best not tainted by a Trump visit | Oliver Wainwright

The president has cancelled his visit, blaming the Obama administration for a bad deal but actually the new building is a progressive beaconRaised on a hill, surrounded by a moat and bristling with all the anti-terrorist measures known to man, the new US embassy in Nine Elms, south-west London, should be exactly the kind of building that Donald Trump would be only too keen to open. Covered in a prickly translucent plastic skin, which looks cheap, foggy and is already stained, the $1bn cube is in many ways the perfect metaphor for his administration. So why has he cancelled the ribbon-cutting ceremony, planned for later this month?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, he tweeted, only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!
