A British newspaper has leaked a memo’s from Ambassador Kim Darroch that describe the American President in negative terms.
While the words are sure draw a response from Trump?
They are a frank view expressed by a diplomat in reporting back to his countries government, and THAT is the guys job.
Donald Trump’s personna has been described in the same way by former staff/Cabinet member’s of the White House in the past…
The man’s words should taken as the truth…..
Even if Donald Trump is the President of the United States and his fellow Republicans in the US Senate are in his insurance for keeping his job….
The British government is defending its ambassador to the United States as merely doing his job following reports of leaked memos in which he called President Donald Trump and his administration “dysfunctional” and “inept.”
The leak of the memos, obtained by The Daily Mail, is likely to further strain a U.S.-British relationship already facing challenges stemming in part from the Brexit crisis and from Trump’s occasional forays into British politics.
According to The Daily Mail, in a series of secret diplomatic cables that cover 2017 to the present, Ambassador Kim Darroch had many negative things to say about Trump and his aides.
“We don’t really believe this Administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept,” Darroch wrote at one point, according to the British news outlet.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office didn’t specifically discuss the secret cables or name Darroch, a veteran diplomat serving as ambassador here since 2016, but effectively defended the comments reported by the Mail.
“The British public would expect our ambassadors to provide ministers with an honest, unvarnished assessment of the politics in their country,” the spokesperson said. “Their views are not necessarily the views of ministers or indeed the government. But we pay them to be candid. Just as the U.S. Ambassador here will send back his reading of Westminster politics and personalities.”…..
Do NOT be surprised if Amb. Darroch is replaced from his position at the request of the Trump White House…He has been the UK ambassador to the US since 2016….
