The British Are Tweeting Hilarious Fake Reasons For Trump Canceling His London Trip (TWEETS)

Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday, as he is known to do, but on this occasion it was to explain his reason for canceling his trip to London:

Many saw through his false pretenses, citing reasons such as the fact that the sale of US embassy was announced by the Bush administration in October 2008 – a full three months before Barack Obama was elected and at a price approximately $200 million less than what Trump stated, claiming that even if the building were to undergo a seven-year, $550 million refurbishment, it still would be unable to meet security requirements.

“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.”

Furthermore, the current embassy was financed by the sale of the previous embassy, as well as the sale of two other State Department properties in London and was completed without exceeding the proposed budget. So, why did Trump really cancel his trip to London? Is it because that London Mayor Sadiq Khan has made it abundantly clear that Trump is not welcome in the city? Perhaps Trump just thinks he’s already in London every time he hears a voice with a British accent among the swirling maelstrom of contorted, whispering shadow-beasts that inhabit his haunted psyche.

Some Brits have taken to Twitter to mock  Trump’s tweets with their alternative facts as to why he ditched his London visit using the hashtag #IcancelledmytriptoLondon and here are the cream of the crop:
