Donald Trump has hit out at the UK ambassador to the US after a leak of sensitive memos, saying he “has not served the UK well”.
Asked about the controversy in New Jersey, Trump told reporters “we’re not big fans of that man and he has not served the UK well.
Sky News reports that a formal inquiry will be held into the leak of diplomatic memos which revealed that Britain’s ambassador to the US, Sir Kim Darroch, had described Donald Trump as “incompetent”, “inept” and “insecure”.
The memos, which detail Sir Kim’s assessments of the Trump administration from 2017 to the present.
In the memos, obtained by the Mail on Sunday, Ambassador Sir Kim Darroch gives a scathing assessment of the White House, saying it has become “uniquely dysfunctional” under President Trump because of “vicious infighting and chaos”, and questions whether it “will ever look competent”.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has distanced himself from Sir Kim’s remarks, saying: “This was a personal view.” He added: “It’s not the view of the British government. It’s not my view.
