British government officials and even US diplomats at the United States Embassy in London have raised doubts about US President Donald Trump’s claim about cancelling his visit to Britain in February, Bloomberg reported. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!”The embassy said in a statement that the security and safety standards at the current embassy building at Grosvenor Square in London could not be maintained without a major infrastructure investment. US officials surveyed more than 50 sites before zeroing in on the site in Vauxhall, which is south of the river Thames, for the new embassy. British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Spokesperson Max Blain said Vauxhall is a vibrant part of London and “home to many businesses,” and not an “off location” as Trump had described. London Mayor Sadiq Khan, however, said that the US president cancelled his trip in fear of protests.
