Sorry, Donald Trump, but your tweet about the London embassy is completely inaccurate


If you’re gonna talk sh*t about your predecessor, at least ensure you’ve got your facts straight. 

That’s one thing that Donald Trump did not do when he fired off a tweet about the reason behind the cancellation of his London trip. What a surprise! 

Trump said he cancelled his trip to the UK’s capital because he’s “not a big fan of the Obama administration” for selling “perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for ‘peanuts.'”

Uuum, hate to break it to ya, Donald, but you can’t pin this one on the Obama administration. 

It was, in fact, the Bush administration who signed the deal in 2008—a month before Obama’s election—to relocate the U.S. Embassy to the Nine Elms location in Wandsworth, London. 

“This has been a long and careful process,” Ambassador Robert Tuttle said in a statement at the time. “We looked at all our options, including renovation of our current building on Grosvenor Square. In the end, we realized that the goal of a modern, secure and environmentally sustainable Embassy could best be met by constructing a new facility.”

Many Brits, awaking to the factually inaccurate tweet this morning, were keen to set the record straight.

Sorry, Trump. You just got fact-checked.
