Cables from UK's ambassador to the US blast Trump as 'inept,' 'incompetent'

Quote:
Diplomatic cables sent from the United Kingdom's ambassador to the United States back to London describe President Donald Trump as "inept," "insecure" and "incompetent," a UK government official confirmed Saturday to CNN.

The leak could cause serious diplomatic damage between the two "special relationship" allies.

While foreign envoys of all nations are often candid in classified dispatches back home, there are periodic episodes when such assessments leak, causing great political embarrassment. Months of efforts by the ambassador, Sir Kim Darroch and his diplomats to build ties and trust with Trump and his political acolytes will be undermined.
The cables were leaked to and first published by the Daily Mail.

Darroch used secret cables and briefing notes to warn the UK government that Trump's "career could end in disgrace," and described conflicts within the White House as "knife fights," according to the Daily Mail.

A UK government source told CNN the memos described in the Daily Mail story are genuine.
The Daily Mail says the memos span the period between 2017 to present day, covering everything from Trump's foreign policy to his 2020 reelection plans.

We have an article that states it will damage the US/UK relationship is these cables are leaked. Well, it's a good thing the article didn't mention the leaked cables because everyone would then know about them.

Disaster has been averted.

Oh geeze, you are aware that not every post is about you, don't you? I didn't see anything that limited who could reply to the post which is about diplomacy and wasn't bery diplomatic.

Regarding the subject of the post; in todays world, there doesn't seem to be any honor among the politicians and their staffs.  Quite a lot of supposed secret infor gets leaked to the press.  In fact, so much gets "leaked" that I think it's intentionally posted wherever it can get the most information out the fastest.

So diplomat(s) don't like President Trump.  When did this become a popularity contest?  President Trump is doing what we elected him to do.  He's acting in the best interests of the nation, not what's in the best interests of various politicians' and diplomats' financial interests.  The diplomats and politicians don't like that.  I do.

Now that Theresa May is gone, the Brits need to replace their Ambassador to the US with someone who can show some respect for our President. It's not very diplomatic to disrespect our nation's Leader and then have to conduct diplomacy with him and his government.

UK defends ambassador after disparaging Trump comments leak

Quote:
The British government is defending its ambassador to the United States as merely doing his job following reports of leaked memos in which he called President Donald Trump and his administration “dysfunctional” and “inept.”
...

“We don't really believe this Administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept,” Darroch wrote at one point, according to the British news outlet.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office didn’t specifically discuss the secret cables or name Darroch, a veteran diplomat serving as ambassador here since 2016, but effectively defended the comments reported by the Mail.

“The British public would expect our ambassadors to provide ministers with an honest, unvarnished assessment of the politics in their country,” the spokesperson said. “Their views are not necessarily the views of ministers or indeed the government. But we pay them to be candid. Just as the U.S. Ambassador here will send back his reading of Westminster politics and personalities."
