Britain reacted angrily Monday to a tweet from U.S. President Donald Trump attacking its public healthcare system in the latest spat to strain U.S.-U.K. ties, casting further doubt on his possible visit to London.One possible explanation for Trump's criticism was an appearance by Brexit champion Nigel Farage, a personal friend of the president, on Fox News earlier Monday where he talked about the NHS.Trump's own attempts to reverse his predecessor's healthcare reform -- known as Obamacare -- twice ended in failure, before his party succeeded in eliminating a key element, the so-called "individual mandate" as part of tax reform.The trip has been delayed, however, and Trump recently pulled out of a plan to open the new U.S. embassy in London, a move British officials blamed on threats of mass protests.
