Our president has recently taken to Twitter to announce that he is cancelling the visit he was supposed to make to Great Britain, so that he could cut the ribbon opening the new U.S. Embassy in London because of Barack Obama. There has been revealed even more information about this as a huge secret Obama has been hiding for years has just leaked.
At the same moment, Democrats started claiming that President Trump was not right about blaming Obama and alleged the decision had been made in the last year of the George W. Bush administration. However, even though the initial decision was indeed made during the Bush administration, it was finalized by Barack Obama in 2009.
The old embassy was located in Mayfair – London’s wealthiest area – and was leased to the U.S. for 999 years in 1954. Then, it was sold to representatives of the Qatari royal family for “hundreds of millions less” than experts have valued it. According to documents, it was sold for $431 million, even though it was estimated for $687.
The new embassy has cost our country $1 billion to build. It is located in a remote area of London, and property developers are hopefull it will become desirable within the next two to five decades.
Meanwhile, the Qataris have made an announcement about their plans – they are going to refurbish the old embassy into a five-star hotel, at a cost of $1.4 billion.
