In a statement posted to Twitter, Khan said that Trump's visit to London next month would "without a doubt have been met by mass peaceful protests".

Trump said he didn't want to take part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony due to what he described as a "bad" real-estate deal for the new embassy, which was made during President Barack Obama's tenure. "Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!"

UK Prime Minister Theresa May had extended an invitation to Trump for a state visit after she became the first world leader to visit the new president in the White House a year ago.

Trump's description of the embassy's new South London site as "off location", also drew a response from Downing Street, with the spokesperson saying that "Vauxhall is a vibrant and important part of London and home to many businesses. And you got the message".

But Trump's late-night tweet singled out problems with the handling of the embassy.

Trump has an outstanding invitation from the British government for a state visit, which involves the kind of pomp and ceremony he is partial to, including a dinner with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.

Prime Minister Theresa May has stayed silent over Trump's decision.

Liverpool 'no longer the same without' Philippe Coutinho, says Roberto Firmino
Strootman, 27, is interested in a move to the Premier League , but there are said to be many clubs interested in him. Last August, the Reds agreed to pay £51m for the 22-year-old Guinea worldwide , who will join in July.

Trump was expected to open the Embassy in February but sources suggest that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will instead attend the ceremony.

The U.S. embassy in London will move from the Mayfair district to a larger building in Vauxhall, South London.

Officials have said that Trump still plans to accept the formal invitation from Theresa May but no date has been set.

A spokesperson for the prime minister said on Friday morning that the decision to cancel Trump's visit was "a matter for the United States".

Meanwhile, Trump ally Nigel Farage, the far-right former leader of Britain's UK Independence Party, lashed out at Khan and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbin or backing protests that could have deterred Trump from visiting. Unrest during the president's visit would be an embarrassment for the United States, which has been one of the U.K.'s closest allies for a century.

He said: "I think it more reflects the fact that other people criticise in French, Italian, and Korean and various other languages, and we criticise in English".
