President Donald Trump said Prime Minister Theresa May was “Stupid” on Tuesday in the handling of Brexit, as the feud with the British ambassador to the United States doubled up.
He is also called Kim Darroch “pompous fool,” “wacky” and “stupid.”
“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.” He tweeted
He switched his anger to May, after resigning to handle Britanny’s departure from the EU, who leaves office later this month. In March, Britain was planned to abandon the bloc, however, the timing of its withdrawal agreements, negotiated with European rulers through Parliament, was reversed until October.
“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
“I don’t know the Ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool.” He added
The incident came in the midst of an escalating diplomatic flare about the leaking of diplomatic cables, which Darroch described Trump’s administration as “diplomatically clumsy and inept.”
The note is one of several cables published on Sunday by the UK mail in which Darroch made negative remarks concerning the US government.
Trump was said to be at the mercy of “dodgy Russians” and to “crash and burn” Trump’s presidency. “
He also reported that Trump could win reelection warning that, as [ Arnold ] Schwarzenegger in the final scenes of’ The Terminator, he would shrink from the scandals and ‘ emerging from the burned but intact flames. ‘
