US will no longer deal with British ambassador

US will no longer deal with British ambassador

"I told her how it should be done, but she made a decision to go another way", he added. "I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well thought of within the US We will no longer deal with him. Tell him the U.S. now has the best Economy & Military anywhere in the World, by far.and they are both only getting bigger, better and stronger.Thank you, Mr. President!"

That prompted the White House to cancel an invitation for Darroch to attend a dinner with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and the emir of Qatar, according to a US official.

The scandal is obviously "between Washington and London", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.

Mrs May briefed senior ministers on the extraordinary transatlantic row at the weekly meeting of the Cabinet in Downing Street. The spokesman said it was an ambassador's job to provide "an honest and unvarnished view" of the situation in countries where they served - though May does not necessarily agree with the content of the memos, he added. "The selective extracts leaked do not reflect the closeness of, and the esteem in which we hold, the relationship".

The US president's early morning wrath was not exclusively reserved for Darroch, however.

"The ambassador remains in post and continues to carry out his duties with the full support of the PM".

The former London Mayor is a friend of Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and has been praised by the U.S. President, who has said that he thinks Johnson would make "a terrific prime minister".

Senior figures lined up to insist the ministers were right to stand up for Sir Kim and warned the Government must not bow to USA pressure.

"You can't change an ambassador at the demand of a host country", Hague told the BBC.

The outburst came amid an escalating diplomatic spat over the leak of diplomatic cables in which Darroch called Trump's administration "diplomatically clumsy and inept" and said he doubted it would become "substantially more normal".

Christopher Meyer, a former British ambassador to Washington, said there was a "possible range of villains".

While British officials hunted for the culprit behind the leak, Conservative Party Foreign Secretary William Hague said the government was right to back Mr Darroch.

London has been scrambling to stem the damage caused by the weekend release of confidential telegrams in which its envoy Darroch described the U.S. leader as "inept" and his White House as "uniquely dysfunctional".
