works for me

NYT:

LONDON - In a series of leaked diplomatic cables, Britain’s ambassador to the United States described President Trump as “radiating insecurity” and his administration as diplomatically “clumsy and inept,” a withering assessment that threatened to damage bilateral relations at a delicate moment for Britain.

The cables were published late on Saturday by The Mail on Sunday, which called them “The Washington Files.” They span a period from 2017 to the present and include candid assessments of American domestic politics and Washington’s treatment of Iran over its nuclear weapons program.

It is unclear who leaked the documents and how The Mail obtained them. But the British news outlet identified only one recipient in Britain: Mark Sedwill, the nation’s national security adviser, who became cabinet secretary in 2018.

it reminds me of Rick Wilson's slogan: Everything Trump Touches Dies or #ETTD. Trump's deadly touch reaches all across the pond

After several days of intense criticism by President Trump, who called the British ambassador to Washington a “pompous fool” and said his administration would no longer work with him, Kim Darroch on Wednesday resigned his post.

Darroch had become embroiled in controversy after a cache of secret diplomatic cables were leaked to a British tabloid over the weekend. The memos from Darroch described Trump as “insecure” and said that the administration was “inept” and “dysfunctional.”

Trump reacted by tweeting that Darroch was “wacky” and “a very stupid guy” and “a pompous fool.” Trump went on to insult outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May for her “failed Brexit negotiation.” Trump boasted that he told May how to do the deal, “but she went her own foolish way — was unable to get it done. A disaster!”

May said to Parliament on Wednesday that she told Darroch that it is a “matter of great regret that he has felt it necessary to leave his position.”

Trump's tweet was pure mindless Trump, but the ambassador's resignation was inevitable once the message to the home office was leaked.

He's a career foreign officer, I suspect he will last much longer in the UK foreign service, than the trump will last in the WH.

The UK thought he would be a great fit with the trump in the WH. Kim Darroch's specialty is zoology.

I hope the James Bond types are looking hard into where the leak came from, I suspect trump/vlad/bojo may have had a a hand in the leak.

Oh don't worry about him. He's part of the British power structure.
