Vastavam web: US President Donald Trump has renewed his criticism of the new US embassy here, describing the south London location as “lousy” and “horrible”, three months after the mission was thrown open to public.In January, Trump cancelled a “working visit” to the UK planned to officially launch the new US embassy in Vauxhall, blaming a “bad deal” struck by the previous Obama-administration to relocate the base from central London to an “off location”.

The President described the south London location as “lousy” and “horrible”, BBC said in a report.Trump is scheduled to visit the UK in July.Speaking at a rally in Michigan, the president said: “In the UK, in London, we had the best site in all of London. The best site.”That sounds good right, but you’ve got to have money left over if you do that, right? By the way, they wanted me to cut the ribbon on the embassy (in January) and I said: ‘I’m not going. I don’t wanna do it'”, BBC quoted Trump as saying.

The building on the Mayfair site was never owned outright by the United States. It owned a 999-year leasehold, but the freehold is owned by Grosvenor Estates, the report said.
