That’s fine with the Brits. They didn’t want him to come anyway.
But now we know exactly how petty Donald Trump is and how fragile his ego is and it’s a clear reason why he should be impeached.
According to a report by The Guardian, Trump recently surprised Prime Minister Theresa May with a phone call to cancel an upcoming trip to the United Kingdom.
Donald Trump has told Theresa May in a phone call he does not want to go ahead with a state visit to Britain until the British public supports him coming.
The US president said he did not want to come if there were large-scale protests and his remarks in effect put the visit on hold for some time.
The call was made in recent weeks, according to a Downing Street adviser who was in the room. The statement surprised May, according to those present.
As you may recall, Trump had demanded a ride to Buckingham Palace in a gold horse-drawn carriage.
Trump canceled because he doesn’t want to visit until he has overwhelming support from the British people, which is a very childish way for a supposed “tough guy” to act. It’s certainly not presidential.
It actually just insults the British government and the people even more. And Trump also embarrassed our country by canceling because it makes the president look like a coward. All it apparently takes to keep the American president from conducting foreign policy abroad is to protest him.
This is the equivalent of a child throwing a temper tantrum and refusing to go to a party because the other kids don’t like him.
The cancellation is particularly embarrassing for the conservative May, who had been touting the state visit.
That’s on top of recent conservative losses in a snap parliamentary election that saw voters reject the right-wing extremists whom Trump is most aligned with in favor of progressive Labour Party leader Jeromy Corbyn, who has called for May’s resignation since she can’t form a majority government.
Trump’s cancellation also comes after his attack on London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the wake of a terrorist attack made Brits hate him even more. His attack also reportedly contributed to the conservative losses in the election.
In short, Trump has once again embarrassed himself and America. But by canceling his trip he just made millions of Brits very happy.
