Wax Trump figure appears at U.S. embassy in London after he cancels visit

LONDON (KGO) -- President Trump won't be attending next month's opening of the new U.S. embassy in London -- but that doesn't mean he won't be seen there, or at least his likeness.

Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum placed its wax version of Mr. Trump in front of the new building on Friday, drawing a crowd of people posing for selfies.

The move came hours after the president tweeted that he won't be at the ceremonial opening.

Trump tweeted that he canceled the trip because he didn't like the Obama administration's move to sell the old embassy for quote, "peanuts." Adding it was quote a "bad deal."

However, the decision to move the embassy was made by President George W. Bush.
