Boris Johnson slams ‘pompous popinjay’ critics of Donald Trump after UK state visit canceled

However, he tweeted earlier today saying he was not a "big fan" of the new embassy, adding that it was a "bad deal" to move from Mayfair to south London.

But the date has yet to be set in the face of deep hostility to the president in Britain, prompting speculation it could be turned into a lower profile trip focused around the opening of the new embassy.

In the opinion of #Donald Trump, the new location of the #US embassy at Nine Elms site, near Battersea in #London was a bad deal.

A petition to stop Trump - who is deeply unpopular in Britain - from making an official state visit garnered over 1.8 million signatures previous year amid a backlash over his controversial travel ban, CNN reported.

However, in the aftermath of Trump retweeting an account associated with the far-right nationalist group Britain First back in November, many politicians and MPs made it clear that the United States president would not be welcome.

Hawaii revels in performance of resident Tagovailoa in national title game
Georgia players watched in shock as Alabama completed a remarkable rally and celebrated another national title win. Alabama went on to lose to No. 2 Notre Dame 24-23 in the Sugar Bowl, giving the AP title to the Fighting Irish.

The pair have clashed in the past after the President berated Mr Khan over his response to the terror attacks in London Bridge previous year, where he mocked the mayor's comments that there was "no reason to be alarmed" by the armed police on the streets.

According to reports first published by the Daily Mail, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will attend the event in Trump's place. "We will not allow USA -U.K. relations to be endangered by some puffed up pompous popinjay in City Hall".

Almost two million British people added their names to an online petition in 2017 calling for Trump's visit to be downgraded from a state visit to avoid embarrassing the queen.

Any visit by Trump to the United Kingdom seems certain to be met with huge protests, with 55% of Brits in one poll calling for his planned state visit to be cancelled.

Trump has yet to visit the U.K.as president.

South Korea proposes unified Olympic women's ice hockey team with North Korea
The United States has continuously stressed that the talks should lead to efforts for the North's complete and verifiable denuclearisation.

Asked if Mr Johnson was speaking for the Government, the spokesman replied: "I'm not aware of the circumstances of the tweet, we will come back".

"Let's hope that Donald Trump also resists the pursuit of his divisive agenda".

The reaction of Downing Street has been cautious. He described the new building in Vauxhall as an "off location".

It followed claims by Michael Wolff, the author of an explosive new book about Mr Trump, that the US President would use a visit to Trumpalise the Queen and Buckingham Palace.
