HE’S OUT: British Ambassador to the US Quits After Anti-Trump Memos Leak to the Public

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.10.19

The British ambassador to the United States resigned from office Wednesday after anti-Trump memos leaked to the public; saying it was “impossible” for him to continue his role in light of the recent scandal.

President Trump labeled Sir Kim Darroch a “very stupid guy” following the leaks and said his administration will no longer be working with the foreign diplomat.

“The wacky Ambassador that the U.K. foisted upon the United States is not someone we are thrilled with, a very stupid guy. He should speak to his country, and Prime Minister May, about their failed Brexit negotiation, and not be upset with my criticism of how badly it was handled. I told @theresa_may how to do that deal, but she went her own foolish way-was unable to get it done. A disaster! I don’t know the Ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool. Tell him the USA now has the best Economy & Military anywhere in the World.

“The current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like. Although my posting is not due to end until the end of this year, I believe in the current circumstances the responsible course is to allow the appointment of a new ambassador,” said a statement from the ambassador.

“Good government depends on public servants being able to give full and frank advice”, added outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May.
