if he goes, I hope he doesn't have to eat any of their pitiful food and drink their hot beer. We saved their asses twice last century, when Germany was on the threshold of victory,they should be grateful.

The American people voted for Donald J. Trump. If our allies are upset with our decision, then they should cut off diplomatic ties with America until we elect another Kenyan knicker.

The British are grateful to that effort made by a generation that has almost disappeared.

But just because the United States of the 1940ís helped them out, does not mean that they have to be grateful to the United States of 2017.

Trump couldnít have tried harder to be disliked by pretty much all nations. His lies and horrible manners are enough to put anyone off.

The only folks that like Trump outside the USA are those who elected a similar leader, you know like, Duterte, of the Philippines.

Exactly.

Trump is not welcome.

Among America's former allies, everyone is just holding their noses and waiting for this farce to end in the inevitable train wreck.

Allies are not necessarily friends. Sometimes they are users.

When allies are friends, they respect the decisions of a friend.

America elects its president; therefore the strong president means the strong voice of people.

It is ironic that those who criticize Trump, as being a Narcissist, are those who are very worried about the Americaís image in the World. They do not realise that it is exactly what Narcissism is all about: the fixation on oneís image.

Narcissus is a character in Greek mythology; it is a young man, who saw his image in the water, and fell in love with it: fell in love, not with himself, but with his image. So Trumpís critics seem to be much more Narcissists than Trump himself. It is a projection on their part; they project their Narcissism on Trump.

The US is the Federation. Federations do not vote one person one vote. Anyone, who is a bit educated, should know that.

But true friends respect their friendís decisions, anyway.

Countries, which ended the relationships with you were in the relationship for phony reasons.

Voter fraud. Trump won the popular vote by millions if you take away the millions of illegal and felon votes in blue states.

I just read about this cancellation and go right to "health problems" of one sort or another.

I've had this funny feeling all along that we're going to have Mullah-President Pence before the first Ill Duce Trump term has ended.

Of Course The mentally ill "Con artist man" knows That he's not welcomed in the U.K. he saw the powerful example of what
Happened at G20 when his orange clown ass was trapped in the hotel watching the city as it was was burning all around him in Protest.

I'm sure the Queen knew that wasn't going to be repeated again In England this time . So even she Snubbed him from coming. Out of Embarrassment of being in a Photo with him.

The only fool was Teresa may Cause she thought she was going to
Get something from him in the states, but then must of had second thoughts as well, knowing England would Burn Down next like "G20" and that she would Get the blame for it. If con man comes...SO it's a good thing that's not going to happen now...

Good Job England! THANK YOU FOR Sending that Orange moron Con Man a message that he's not welcomed in the U.K.

BESIDES OBAMA Would get a better heroes welcome in England.

To Compare to that Con- artist, Buffon the orange Clown man. who would of left it smoldering in flames instead..

Why did Obama sell the US Embassy in London to Qatar for 1.5 Million under market value?

London's food is vastly improved. Across the street from a theater in the West End was one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever visited. And I miss that great English dish, Bangers and Mash.

I would like for Trump to visit London, so he could be vilified by protesters filling the streets to teach him something about human decency.

Not among my favorites. But I do like Cornish pasties, and the occasional Toad in the Hole.
