"This just reinforces what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place".

Mrs May controversially extended the offer of a state visit when she became the first world leader to meet Mr Trump in the White House following his inauguration previous year.

Many Londoners have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda.

He said: "It is an own goal for the United Kingdom if the threat of mass protests has prevented the President of our closest ally from attending an embassy opening".

He said the new embassy was a "signal to the world that this special relationship that we have is stronger and is going to grow and get better". "Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon - NO!"

He said it was due to concerns about the embassy's move from the elite Mayfair district to a less fashionable area of London. The sale was made because the British government wanted to list the building as one of historical importance, which would have made renovations and a potential sale more hard to do.

In December Ambassador Woody Johnson said he was looking forward to welcoming the president when he visited, adding: "I think he will be very impressed with this building and the people who occupy it".

However, Trump blamed former President Barack Obama for the sale, saying he would not attend the official opening of the new site.

There had always been security concerns about the Grosvenor Square site, dating back to the late 1990s after attacks on U.S. embassies in Africa.
