Yesterday, emails of the ambassador of the United Kingdom in America leaked. In the leaked email, the ambassador, Sir Kim Darroch, said that the White House is divided and dysfunctional. He also said that Trump’s administration is ‘inept’. The leaked comments have led to a lot of criticisms against Darroch with the latest being from the President himself. In response to the leaked emails, Trump has said that Sir Kim Darroch has not served his country well.
Trump Criticizes UK Ambassador Sir Kim Darroch Following Leaked Emails
When reporters in New Jersey asked Trump to comment on the leaked emails, the President said that he has never been a fan of Darroch. In his words;
“We are not fans of that man. He hasn’t served the United Kingdom well. So, there are many things I can say about him but I am not going to bother.”
While Darroch has been under fire for saying those things about Trump’s administration, there is an ongoing investigation to find out who leaked the emails. Liam Fox, the United started trade secretary, along with many other public figures believe that whoever leaked the emails was trying to create enmity between the United States and the United Kingdom.
The investigation is being carried out by the Foreign Office in the White House. When the investigations reveal the parties involved in the leak, the individual or group will suffer internal disciplinary action. If the investigations reveal that the emails were leaked deliberately to compromise the relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom, the guilty parties may face persecution to the full extent of the law.
Darroch became United Kingdom’s ambassador to the United States in January 2016 a few months before Trump became the president. His job has always been to represent the interests of the Queen and the United Kingdom from the United States. He has over 42 years of experience in his diplomatic career.
