Sir Kim Darroch Resigns As UK Ambassador To The US

Sir Kim Darroch, Britain’s ambassador to the US, has resigned after leaked diplomatic cables revealed a blistering critique of President Donald Trump and his administration.

Darroch referred to Trump as diplomatically “clumsy and inept,” and said he “radiates insecurity”, prompting a response from Trump.

Donald Trump described Darroch as a “pompous fool” and a “very stupid guy” who had been foisted on the US.

In a statement issued on 10 July, Darroch said it was now “impossible” for him to do his job.

He leaves his position after three years as ambassador to the US.
