British Ambassador To US Resigns from office


The Britain’s ambassador to Washington Kim Darroch said on Wednesday that he was resigning after drawing Donald Trump’s ire for calling the US president “inept” in leaked confidential cables to London.

Darroch said in a resignation letter to the Foreign Office that the scandal made it “impossible” for him to continue representing British interests in the United States.

Trump has said his administration would no longer “deal” with Darroch.

“Since the leak of official documents from this Embassy there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding my position and the duration of my remaining term as ambassador,” Darroch wrote.
