Donald Trump memes explode on Twitter as users speculate why US President REALLY cancelled his trip to London

MEMES mocking the US President have exploded after he wrote a bizarre Tweet to announce he would no longer be visiting the UK.

Trump-shaped trolls and Putin-controlled dolls populated the internet after Trump cancelled his highly controversial visit in the early hours of this morning.

He wrote: "Reason I cancelled 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!"

The bizarre Tweet sparked the creativity of thousands who set the hashtag #ICancelledMyTripToLondon trending.

Madame Tussauds were swift to put their Trump waxwork to good use, photographing the uncanny figure in front of the US embassy.

In his Tweet, Trump was blaming his predecessor for selling off the former embassy in Grosvenor Square for "peanuts", saying the new one was a "bad deal".

But the decision was actually taken by George W.Bush in 2008, with the move to Nine Elms made due to the difficulty of beefing up security in busy Grosvenor Square.

This did not go unnoticed by Ryanair, who mocked Trump's recent claim of being a "stable genius", writing: "Never be stuck with a "bad deal" to London.

Meanwhile former Labour leader Ed Miliband did not hold back, writing: "Nope it's because nobody wanted you to come. And you got the message."

Alongisde memes of Putin controlling Trump and Trump "whitewashing" the White House as a troll, Sam Sharma jokingly attributed Trump's cancelled trip to the US President to Nando's.

"Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of Nando's having sold perhaps the best located and finest restaurant in London for "peanuts," (Mile End) only to build a new one in an off location," he wrote.

"Bad deal. Wanted me to eat for free – NO!!"

Trump's decision not to head across the Atlantic comes despite Prime Minister Theresa May saying that a future visit was still on the cards last week.

Downing Street was hoping to nail down exact dates for the initial trip this week, with February 26 and 27 pencilled in, but sources suggest plans are now up in the air.

It had been expected he could make a low-key working visit rather than a trip which involved all the trappings of a state occasion – but that too now looks off the cards.
