Donald Trump did not like the new US Embassy in London

The new US Embassy in London officially was opened on Tuesday. The building rises on the south bank of the Thames in the Nine Elms area. It is much larger than the previous one, and its construction cost $1.2 billion. The previous embassy, ​​at Grosvenor Square, was sold to the state investment fund Qatar, which plans to turn it into a luxury hotel.

Donald Trump last week published a message in Twitter, in which the president said that he was not going to come to the official opening of the embassy.

Trump stated that his predecessor Barack Obama unwisely invested money, although the project was announced in 2008, still under George W. Bush. Trump is still invited for a state visit, but the date has not yet been fixed. Robert Johnson, the US ambassador to the United Kingdom, appointed by Trump, described the new energy-efficient embassy as an excellent structure.

According to officials, the construction of the building took £1.38 billion, making it the most expensive US embassy ever built by America. Officials claim that the new embassy is a necessary measure, as improving the security of the old building would take even more time and would require hundreds of millions of dollars.

As already mentioned, there were no ceremonies about the opening of the embassy. On the first day of work, a small queue was formed near the entrance to receive consular services. The builders have not completed the decorative works, so on Tuesday the hammers still knocked and drills still buzzed at the embassy.
