Trump Rips U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May For Defending Ambassador Who Called Him ‘Inept’
On Monday, President Donald Trump continued his maniac assault against U.K.’s ambassador to the U.S. Kim Darroch after leaked cables revealed the diplomat called his administration “inept” and “dysfunctional.”
“I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well thought of within the U.S. We will no longer deal with him,” Trump tweeted, referring to Darroch.
In a series of tweets, an angry Trump bristled at being criticized in secret diplomatic notes, going after outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May, who expressed “full faith” in Darroch, over her handling of Brexit.
“What a mess she and her representatives have created. I told her how it should be done, but she decided to go another way,” Trump wrote, adding that “the good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new Prime Minister.”
Darroch wrote in secret cables to top officials in London that Trump is viewed as “insecure” and “incompetent.” He said there are doubts in Washington about whether the White House “is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional, less unpredictable, less faction-riven, less diplomatically clumsy and inept.”
Asked Sunday about the cables, Trump told reporters that Darroch “has not served the U.K.” and added that “we’re not big fans of that man.
The cables were published by U.K. newspaper The Mail on Sunday, providing fresh evidence of strains in the so-called “special relationship” between the U.S. and U.K. during Trump’s presidency.
….thought of within the U.S. We will no longer deal with him. The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new Prime Minister. While I thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent State Visit last month, it was the Queen who I was most impressed with!
