London’s Madame Tussauds moved its wax figure of President Trump to the new U.S. embassy in the city after the president canceled his visit to open the building next month.

Claire Treacy, a spokeswoman for the museum, told The Washington Post that they decided to move the wax Trump after learning that the president had canceled his trip.

“Just like the rest of the country, we woke up to the news of Trump having canceled his visit,” Treacy said. “And we thought: ‘Wouldn’t it be fun [to move] our own President Trump there, instead?’”

Trump confirmed late Thursday that he canceled his trip to cut the ribbon at the new U.S. embassy, saying that he is “not a big fan” of an Obama-era real estate sale involving the new site.

The relocation and redevelopment plan was executed starting under former President George W. Bush in 2008 and was made for security reasons, officials said at the time.

    The figure should be smashed, not moved. Trump is an embarrassment.
