Relations between UK and USA have soured after leak of diplomatic cables from the UK's ambassador to USA. The leaked memos were published in British newspaper on Sunday. They contained highly negative and critical comments about President Trump's White House from Ambassador Kim Darroch. Mr Darroch wrote of White House: "We don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept." He characterized Mr Trump's policy on Iran as "incoherent" and "chaotic". Sir Winston Churchill's grandson called leak an act of "unforgivable treachery".
United States and the UK are traditionally strong partners on international stage. They each describe their friendship as "special relationship". The UK needs to nurture this friendship following its leaving European Union after Brexit. It needs trade deal with America. The United Kingdom's Prime Minister Theresa May said she had "full faith" in Sir Kim as ambassador but did not agree with his comments. Her spokesman described leak as being "absolutely unacceptable". Donald Trump retaliated to comments, saying Sir Kim "has not served UK well." On Twitter, he wrote: "I do not know Ambassador, but he is not liked or well thought of within US. We will no longer deal with him."
