A recently leaked memo obtained by the Mail on Sunday detail Sir Kim Darroch’s assessments of the Trump administration from 2017 to the present.
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has called for Britain’s ambassador to the US to be sacked after it was claimed he had described Donald Trump’s White House as ‘uniquely dysfunctional’ and ‘inept’.
The publication of this secret memo is likely to spark a fresh diplomatic row between London and Washington and risks causing the government and the Foreign Office major embarrassment.
The emergence of the memo come just weeks after the UK rolled out the red carpet for Mr Trump during his state visit at the start of June.
Nigel Farage, who is a very good friend of president Trump, said the comments showed Britain needed a new representative in the US.
Farage told MailOnline: ‘From the moment Trump was elected this man was the wrong person to be the British ambassador – a globalist in outlook, totally opposed to the Trump doctrine.
‘The comments are wholly unsurprising but for him to speculate about Trump’s alleged involvement with Russia shows him to be totally unsuitable for the job and the sooner he is gone the better.’
Meanwhile, Dominic Raab, the former Brexit secretary, suggested the comments made by Sir Kim were ‘unwise’ but David Gauke, the Justice Secretary, said the leak was ‘disgraceful’.
