Mr Trump claimed he had cancelled his trip the trip because he was unhappy that the embassy had been moved from Mayfair to Nine Elms in south west London.
"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", Trump wrote on Twitter.
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. "Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!"
Prime Minister Theresa May invited Trump for a state visit when she met with him at the White House soon after he took office a year ago.
The decision to relocate the embassy was also taken by the administration of George Bush Jr in 2007, not during the Obama era, as asserted by Trump. "It seems he's finally got that message", tweeted Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
The American flag was this month removed from Grosvenor Square where the United States embassy has been based since 1938 with the area known as "Little America" during World War Two, when the square also housed the military headquarters of General Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told parliament on Tuesday that he expected Queen Elizabeth II to meet Trump during his visit, saying she was "well capable of taking this or any American president in her stride".
"I think we have to welcome the American President to Britain", Johnson said. "President Trump wants us to work more closely than ever with the United Kingdom", said Johnson, adding he hoped the president would attend the opening ceremony.
