U.S. President Donald Trump announced Friday he will no longer attend the opening of the new U.S. embassy in London, a move welcomed by critics in Britain who had planned mass protests.Trump has also been offered a state visit to Britain, and Prime Minister Theresa May's office said Friday that nothing has changed, although no date has been set.There had been strong opposition to the invitation, at first over Trump's travel ban on Muslim-majority countries, and then most recently his re-tweet of a far-right organization, Britain First. Leading Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage, who visited Trump following his election, said the decision was "disappointing".However, relations between the pair have been strained since May became the first foreign leader to visit Trump following his inauguration in January 2017 .
