Leaked diplomatic cables revealed British ambassador Kim Darroch’s unflattering comments about President Trump and the White House.
Leaked diplomatic cables published Sunday revealed unflattering comments from the British ambassador to the United States about the Trump administration, which he called “diplomatically clumsy and inept.”
Ambassador Kim Darroch’s critical assessment was part of several documents from 2017 to the present, which The Mail said it was given in an “unprecedented leak” that it dubbed “The Washington Files.”
Some of the most inflammatory statements from Darroch came from a June 22, 2017, briefing note on the president and his team, which was prepared for top British officials, The Mail reported.
