image for Donald Trump Canceling State Visit 'Embarrassing' Says Ex-U.S. Ambassador to Denmark: 'We Don't Treat Friends and Allies This Way'

The former U.S. ambassador to Copenhagen has told Newsweek that President Donald Trump has put his "finger in the eye of a great ally" by canceling a state visit to Denmark.

For his services, he was awarded the prestigious Grand Cross of the Order of the Dannebrog by Queen Margrethe II.

"Regardless of how you feel about Donald Trump's politics, it's still a special occasion and the alliance means something.
