US President Donald Trump had canceled his trip to London where he was to open a new US embassy because he was upset about its location and price tag.

Axar.az reports citing sputniknews.com.

"Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for 'peanuts,' only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!" he tweeted.

The statement was made after Britain’s Independent newspaper reported earlier in the day that Trump was to open the new diplomatic mission in February but called off the trip because he felt unhappy about not being able to meet the Queen.

The country announced its decision to move the embassy building from Mayfair in 2008, with the new one set to open on January 16.

According to the project description on its web page, it "has been funded entirely by the proceeds of the sale of other US Government properties in London, not through appropriated funds."
