Read carefully the biased news report. Attempting to shift responsibility and portray Trump as wrong, this scurrilous rag says "...the plan to finance the project was developed in 2007, at a time when George W Bush was in the White House." Liberal, Leftist, profiteering Democrats were in the government in 2007 and were the ones "developing" a plan to move the embassy. The approval and implementation came under Obama. These snake oil "journalists" don't miss a chance at misdirecting readership and bashing Trump. A BILLION DOLLARS is a helluva lot of money.

The U.S. State Department today signed a conditional agreement with the real estate developer Ballymore to acquire a site in the Nine Elms Opportunity Area in Wandsworth for the construction of a new Embassy.

“This has been a long and careful process,” said Ambassador Robert Tuttle, who has led the search for a new site.

Yes, correct. October 2008... finalized and implemented much later. The reference to 2007 in the article was for confusing readers.

A BILLION DOLLARS is One Thousand Million Dollars. Research will show that some of that money went back to the Obamas, the Clinton Foundation, the DNC, ultimately paying for a fake Steele "dossier" by way of a scam project in the Communist dominated State Department during the Obama administrations.

LOL!!!
Your thin veneer of pseudo-intellectualism is cracking badly under your increasing load of nut job conspiracy theories.

The decision to move away from the Grade II listed building to Nine Elms was taken by the George W Bush administration in October 2008, shortly before he left office.

Facts are facts, chump.

Obviously you never signed a purchase agreement to buy real estate, is that correct?

So you really don't know anything about a trgages or buying real property to have a legitimate opinion.

Should we assume you're squatting in your parents home?

You're all missing the main issue. The deal was a bad deal, arranged by Democrats to profit Democrats. A Thousand Million Dollars for a building is a bad deal and Trump once again defines the issue perfectly.

No matter what, Trump has to blame Obama for something every day. He does this to deflect, defuse and confuse.

Trump doesn’t know how to do his damn job, so this is his Modus Operandi.

You people are repeating yourselves. So fearful of the admittances in their earlier article, the now edited news version no longer references the CONDITIONAL arrangements of a small group of people in the U.S. State Department during the last few months of the Bush Administration. The actual approvals necessary for this boondoggle to have happened occurred under Obama's influence and guidance. The infection of the State Department by agenda driven, Communist oriented dope-heads permanently implanted under Clinton to spill huge amounts of money from scams to political operatives doesn't change overnight. Grants, fake loans and bogus, inflated construction projects are the way of parlaying government funds into the Clinton Foundation, Obama's remarkable new millionaire status and the DNC. Hell, the new version of reporting this obvious rip-off now plays loose with the actual amount involved, It is no longer a Billion Dollar deal, but approximately a Billion Dollar deal. This means the International Marxist effort won't focus on the miscellaneous MILLIONS of Dollars wasted.

Bloviating BS and nut-job conspiracy theories aside, the embassy was planned under the Bush Administration

On the embassy web page about the project, it said:
"The project has been funded entirely by the proceeds of the sale of other US Government properties in London, not through appropriated funds."

But do continue to foam at the mouth about it, it’s really quite entertaining.

So, Democrat sleepers CONDITIONALLY planned the sale of U.S. Government owned properties throughout London in order to enrich the Clinton Foundation, Obama and the DNC. The slick sham gets more interesting.

It remains surprising, how you insulting pricks didn't pay attention, when the Clintons conspired with their State Department sleepers to rip off the people of Haiti. Its current state of depravity and depression is linked to that deception and the theft of Haitian utilities to profit the Clintons and other thieving Democrats.

It’s not surprising at all that your alcohol & prescription drug impaired intellect has left you so gullible to the conspiracy theories and Russian bot/Facebook/Alt-right “news” you like to keep vomiting up here.

2 Things .

1. Every agreement in a real property sale is conditional until all terms of the contract are executed.

2. Any contract legally acknowledged by one administration under the authority to the US, the next adminstration is obligated to complete.

The decision move the US embassy from its Grosvenor Square location was made in the second term of the Bush administration.

The modernist concrete structure, opened in 1960, was proving harder to secure in an age of terrorist threats. the building, and its inadequacies were quickly becoming obvious.

The current London US embassy sits on leased land. London was the only US embassy on lands that America doesn't outright own.

In 2008, before Obama took office, the decision was made to purchase outright a site in the regeneration neighborhood of Nine Elms, in the Battersea district of London

Trump's uninformed. But he claims to be a billianiare intermational developer.

The US, London embassy isn't totally American owned.

You don't know any more than the Buffoon in the oval office.
