Yeah absolutely!

That’s what we need. A new $500 million embassy in London!

The most expensive house built in the US, 50 or so rooms is about $50 million. We need a NEW embassy ten times more expensive.

Hope that the financiers, the Chi-coms, will be able to get their bugs in before the guilding goes on the walls!

And do we get to sell the old one for $100 grand???

How stupid can the Dems and Rinos be, and how stupid do you believe that they think that we (be)???

WHY?

We’re broke.

Crushed by colossal debt.

Can’t this wait?

We already built a new embassy in London back when Winthrop Aldrich was named ambassador in 1953, by Dwight Eisenhower. I can’t believe it isn’t big enough, since England was our most important ally at that time.

We built a huge new controversial embassy in London in 1960. What do we need a new one for?
