British Ambassador who criticized Trump RESIGNS

Despite the UK government getting behind Kim Darroch after his criticism of Trump became known, Darroch has now resigned as ambassador to the US.

This news should make Trump very happy:

FOX NEWS – The British ambassador to the U.S. who criticized President Trump has resigned, the U.K. Foreign Office said Wednesday.

Ambassador Kim Darroch — in documents leaked in recent days — slammed the Trump administration as “diplomatically clumsy and inept,” and said he doubted it would become “substantially more normal.”

In a resignation letter on Wednesday, Darroch said “the current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like.”

“Although my posting is not due to end until the end of this year, I believe in the current circumstances the responsible course is to allow the appointment of a new ambassador,” he wrote, noting the situation “has brought home to me the depth of friendship and close ties between our two countries.”

Darroch said he is “grateful to all those in the U.K. and the U.S., who have offered their support during this difficult few days.”

There’s a reason why it suddenly became impossible for him to do his job.

After Darroch’s comments were made known, Trump responded on Monday with a rebuke of his own, saying that while he doesn’t know the ambassador, “he is not liked or well thought of within the U.S.” and that “we will no longer deal with him.”



He said later Monday that “we are not thrilled with” the UK Ambassador and called him “a very stupid guy”:

This is the thing I’ve never liked about Trump, how he responds to being insulted like this. Instead of taking it in stride, his juvenile side comes out and he must ‘punch back’ with insults of his own. But he got his way and now the UK will have to find a new ambassador to the US.
