Washington will cut its ties with British ambassador Kim Darroch, President Donald Trump has announced. According to leaked cables, Darroch called the Trump administration “dysfunctional,” “inept,” and “incompetent.” In a rambling series of tweets critical of British Prime Minister Theresa May’s handling of Brexit, Trump called out Darroch on Monday, saying the diplomat is “not liked or well thought of within the US.” In a series of diplomatic cables leaked to the Daily Mail and reported by the paper on Sunday, Darroch slammed the Trump administration’s hardline Iran policies, saying they are unlikely “to become more coherent anytime soon.” Darroch also panned “hawkish” hardliners within Trump’s cabinet, likely National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
