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!
Darkest Hour movie inspires Trump to visit his war bunker: Report [CHURCHILL WAS A ALCOHOLIC FRAUD]
Influenced by the 2017 blockbuster movie Darkest Hour, US President Donald Trump has indicated he wants to tour the underground bunker of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in his upcoming state visit to the UK in October.
Churchill used the bunker during World War II to plan his meeting amid heavy and constant German bombardments of Britain.
Trump even recommended the film to British Prime Minister Theresa May when they spoke on the phone in December last year.
According to The Sunday Times, plans for Trump’s visit are still in the early stages but British sources believe the bunker visit is “plausible.”
An uncertain trip
Trump’s visit to the UK has been under discussion for some time, following an invitation that was extended to Trump by May, when she visited the White House last year.
However, he reportedly canceled plans to visit Britain and to attend the opening of a new US embassy in London over fears he will not be made welcome and would be greeted with mass protests.
Bloomberg even reported in January that Trump told May last year that he would not be visiting the UK unless she could “promise” a “warm welcome.”
Trump also canceled a planned visit to the UK intended to celebrate the opening of a new US embassy in London complaining that the Obama administration got a “bad deal” when it sold the country’s previous embassy in London, even though the decision was made during the Bush administration.
Trump affection for Churchill
The US president has long been an admirer of Churchill. In January 2017, a bust of Churchill was placed back in the White House’s Oval Office shortly after Trump was sworn into office.
A bust of Churchill first appeared in the Oval Office during George W Bush’s administration, after it was loaned to the US by former Prime Minister Tony Blair, but was replaced by a sculpture of Martin Luther King Jr. during Barack Obama’s presidency.
Trump’s admiration for the World War II British premier even prompted him to tell Theresa May she could become “this generation’s Churchill” in his December 2017 phone call with her.
