The British public have mocked President Trump’s decision to cancel his planned trip to London over the relocation of the country’s embassy.

  Michael Wolff: Trump is 'bouncing off the walls' with anger over book Michael Wolff, the author of a newly released book about President Trump's White House, said he has heard that Trump is "bouncing off the walls" with anger over the book.Wolff told The Hollywood Reporter that he still has sources in the White House who have filled him i n on Trump's reaction to "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.""I hear that the president is very angry, or, let me be precise: I hear that he is truly bouncing off the walls," Wolff said.He added that he didn't get the sense that Trump "has thought of anything other than himself at any given time.

Mr Trump said he thought the embassy’s move from Grosvenor Square in Mayfair to Nine Elms, south of the Thames, was a “bad deal” and the building was in an “off location”.

Sadiq Khan: Trump cancelled UK visit because 'he got the message'

But the prospect of demonstrations against his appearance could also have been a factor in the president’s decision to cancel the visit.

Jokes at the president’s expense, including poking fun at the inaccuracy of his statement and comparing him to a London taxi driver for refusing to travel south of the River Thames, flooded social media.

Hundreds of replies to the president’s tweet took issue with the idea that his predecessor Barack Obama was the person who authorised the change of location.

One seriously injured in Trump Tower fire

  One seriously injured in Trump Tower fire Two people have been injured, one seriously, after a fire broke out in the Trump Tower in New York. About 84 firefighters were on the scene to battle the blaze, and video footage captured smoke billowing from the top of the luxury block.Although local media initially reported that no-one had been hurt, the New York Fire Department later said one person had sustained potentially life-threatening injuries, and was being treated.The other person received only minor injuries, they said.Footage from the scene showed a street packed with fire engines, and it was reported that 26 units attended the scene.

One such reply from Andy Greatbatch read: “That’s just not true Donald. The decision to move the U.S embassy in London was initiated by G.W Bush’s administration. You can’t keep blaming your wonderful predecessor. The fact is the UK people don’t want you to visit the UK and you know that.”

Some Londoners humorously noted that they too would resist crossing the Thames.

Twitter user @looksquiteyoung wrote: “To be fair this is normally my reaction to getting invited somewhere south of the river too…”

Others, however, praised the Nine Elms and Battersea area. Twitter user Mary Beatrice posted:

“@realDonaldTrump “Off location”? Babe, south of the river is where it’s at. But you’re right, we didn’t want you here anyway.”

For some online, the practicalities of the president opening a building were a source of mirth.

“I can’t believe for a second you would be trusted with scissors!” said Allan Lindsay.

Many of the replies to Trump’s tweet solely featured pictures of the Queen laughing and smiling.
