United States President, Donald Trump, on Tuesday, labeled British Prime Minister, Theresa May, as being foolish, over her handling of Brexit.
Trump also referred to Britain’s ambassador to the US, Kim Darroch, as “wacky,” “stupid” and a “pompous fool.”, while bearing on the feud with the envoy.
In his usual social media outburst, Trump said on Twitter: “I told @theresa_may how to do that deal, but she went her own foolish way-was unable to get it done. A disaster!” Trump said, apparently referring to past advice that she sue the E.U. “I don’t know the Ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool.”
“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”.
The reaction by the US president came amid diplomatic escalation over the leak of diplomatic cables, in which Darroch called Trump’s administration “diplomatically clumsy and inept”, and said he doubted it would become “substantially more normal.”
The memo was one of several cables published by the UK’s Mail on Sunday, in which Darroch made negative statements about the U.S. government.
He said Trump could be at the mercy of “dodgy Russians,” and that Trump’s presidency could “crash and burn” and be at “the beginning of a downward spiral.”
He also reportedly indicated that Trump could win re-election, warning that the brash-speaking first citizen of the US could shake off scandals and “emerge from the flames, battered but intact, like [Arnold] Schwarzenegger in the final scenes of ‘The Terminator.”
