Trump says US will 'no longer deal with' UK ambassador who hurt his feelings


Trump said the U.S. will stop working with U.K. Ambassador Kim Darroch, whose observations about Trump recently leaked to the press.

Trump's rage against the U.K. ambassador — whose private assessments of Trump as a man who "radiates insecurity" and whose administration is "inept" leaked to the press over the weekend — has not subsided.

In a series of tweets Monday afternoon, Trump criticized Ambassador Kim Darroch and vowed that the U.S. will no longer work with him.

"I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well thought of within the U.S.," Trump tweeted of the ambassador most Americans were totally unfamiliar with before the documents leaked. "We will no longer deal with him."

Trump's petty rant didn't end there.

He went on to comment on the upcoming election for a new prime minister in the U.K., which Trump has already inserted himself into only to be embarrassed.

"The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new Prime Minister," Trump said, after criticizing outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May and her handling of Brexit. "While I thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent State Visit last month, it was the Queen who I was most impressed with!"

Trump had already commented on the leaked communications, saying on Sunday that Darroch "has not served the U.K. well"

"We're not big fans of that man and he has not served the U.K. well," Trump added.

Of course, Darroch private assessments on Trump and his administration — which he said has "incoherent" policy objectives and has ties to "dodgy Russian financiers" — were totally spot on.

But Trump's fragile ego couldn't take the criticism, and thus he is still lashing out days later.
