UK’s top envoy in US says Trump ‘inept’: Report

LONDON (AFP) – Britain’s ambassador in the United States has described United States (US) President Donald Trump and his administration as “inept” and “uniquely dysfunctional”, according to leaked diplomati The Mail yesterday.

Ambassador Kim Darroch reportedly said Trump’s presidency could “crash and burn” and “end in disgrace”, in the cache of secret cables and briefing notes sent back to Britain seen by the newspaper.

“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 allegedly wrote in one dispatch.

The paper said the most damning comments by Darroch described Trump, who was received by Queen Elizabeth II during a state visit to Britain just last month, as “insecure” and “incompetent”.
