President Trump got the message from the many Londoners, Khan said. Cambridge Econometrics, an economics consultancy, looked at five different Brexit scenarios, from the hardest to the softest form of Brexit, and broke down the economic impact on nine industries, from construction to finance. "Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!"
"If the Government continue to mishandle the negotiations we could be heading for a lost decade of lower growth and lower employment", Khan said.
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".
The new embassy on the South Bank is a veritable fortress set back at least 100 feet (30 meters) from surrounding buildings - mostly newly-erected high-rise residential blocks - and incorporating living quarters for the US Marines permanently stationed inside.

In December, USAmbassador to Panama John Feeley resigned in protest of Trump's policies, ahead of the president deriding Latin American nations such as Haiti and El Salvador as "s***hole countries", Reuters reported Friday.
