UK blames protests as Trump cancels London trip
The British government blamed the threat of mass protests for President Donald Trump's decision Friday to cancel a visit to London to open the new US embassy, and warned that criticism of the White House risked harming US-UK relations.
Trump said he was abandoning next month's trip because he did not like the location and cost of the new embassy building.
But Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson suggested the decision was prompted by the opposition to Trump in Britain, and warned such critics "seem determined to put this crucial relationship at risk".
