Step inside the brand new $1 billion US embassy in London — which Trump says is worse than the old one and refuses to visit
President Donald Trump has cancelled his planned trip to Britain, where he was due to open the new US embassy.
In a tweet on Thursday, Trump claimed that the Obama administration had sold the former US embassy "for 'peanuts,' only to build a new one in an off location."
The decision to sell the old embassy was actually taken during the George W Bush administration and reportedly driven by security concerns.
The new 12-story glass embassy, which is scheduled to open on January 16, cost $1 billion (£730 million) — making it the most expensive embassy ever built.
