Some U.K. lawmakers had said Trump was not welcome in Britain after he re-tweeted videos from a far-right British group and criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan following a terror attack past year.
Mr Khan was due to be making a speech in London but sat down and flicked through a newspaper instead when a small group of demonstrators disrupted the start.
U.S. President Donald Trump canceled his trip to Britain, amid what experts say are fears that locals will mount massive protests, U.S. experts told Xinhua. Rather, experts believe that Trump could be met in London by massive protests denouncing the outspoken USA president for what opponents believe as a figure who sows divisiveness.
Trump's visit to Britain is expected to be accompanied by a large demonstration anytime. "He is not welcome in London and he certainly isn't welcome in Queenstown", he said.
Some British lawmakers questioned whether Trump would be welcome in London because of previous tweets and criticism of Muslims and his sniping at London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of a terror attack in that city past year.
The mayor of London - who has been criticized by Trump in tweets - said Trump appeared to have "got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance".
David Lammy, a Labour party lawmaker, believed Trump was shaken by the prospect of being " met by millions of us out on the streets protesting".

Trump told May in a phone call last month that he planned to visit early in 2018.
"We are strongly committed in the special relationship between our two countries and we are confident the new embassy will provide the necessary platform to continue our cooperation".
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has repeatedly clashed with Trump, welcomed the cancellation of the trip as well.
The trans-Atlantic alliance between the U.S. and Britain has been shaky ever since Trump assumed the presidency in January.
"Beyond the disagreements between leaders and the optics of this cancellation, U.S. -UK relations continue to remain strong - largely because there are a wide range of institutional ties between the nations in military cooperation, intelligence, economics, and commerce that operate as normal despite the political storms that may arise", Mahaffee said.
"We are still working with our United Kingdom allies to find a date for a visit for the invitation that was offered and accepted, " she said Friday.
On the face of it, Trump called off his "working" visit to the United Kingdom because of his displeasure at the Obama administration's decision to sell off the previous, "finest", embassy in Grosvenor Square to the Qataris for "peanuts" (never mind the fact that this decision was made in the final months of George W Bush's time in office, not Barack Obama's).
