"Let's hope that Donald Trump also revisits the pursuit of his divisive agenda". "It seems he's finally got that message", Khan tweeted.

Dismissing the President's excuse that he didn't want to visit London because the new US embassy had been a bad financial deal, Kassam - - laid the blame squarely on the shoulders of leading Labour party figures including the leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn, and London mayor Sadiq Khan - both of whom have done all but promise massive street actions against the President should he visit the city.

US President Donald Trump on Friday said he was canceling his trip to the United Kingdom next month. Khan, a vocal critic of the the United States president, responded to news of the cancellation by saying Trump "had got the message" that Londoners were opposed to his policies.

Trump said he abandoned his plans to visit the United Kingdom as he is "not a big fan of the Obama Administration" selling off the previous embassy and building a new one in an "off-location".

Discussing the cancellation, Khan said: "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".

Trump even blamed former President Barack Obama and his administration for the "bad deal" over the embassy.

Khan said that Trump's visit would have been hampered by mass protests as the U.S. President views are opposite of the city's value, reported the Independent. "Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!"
