Trump says United Kingdom ambassador 'a very stupid guy'

Donald Trump's Russian-born business associate Felix Sater is to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday as the president resumes his row with UK ambassador to the US Sir Kim Darroch lashing out at the “mess” Theresa May has

May's spokesman said she told a meeting of her top ministers that Kim Darroch was continuing to carry out his duties with her full support, after Trump said on Monday he would no longer deal with Britain's envoy.

In his latest explosive tweets, the president complained that Sir Kim Darroch was a "very stupid guy" who had been foisted on the US.

U.S. President Donald Trump took aim at British Prime Minister Theresa May and her Washington ambassador on Tuesday, two days after leaked documents showed criticism of his administration.

However, outgoing UK Prime Minister Theresa May assured that she has "full faith" in Ambassador Darroch.

The journalist who reported the leak, Isabel Oakeshott, is a strong Brexit backer and an ally of Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, who also is Britain's leading champion of Mr Trump.

There is no reason for Russian Federation to comment on the row caused by a series of leaked memos in which the UK Ambassador to the U.S. called Donald Trump "inept" and assessed his administration as "dysfunctional".

Trump added, "I don't know the Ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool".

"Tell him the U.S. now has the best Economy & Military anywhere in the World, by far and they are both only getting bigger, better and stronger.Thank you, Mr. President!"

While ministers and May's spokesman have stated the leaked cables were only a partial reflection of Darroch's assessments and did not reflect the government's views, they have infuriated Trump who fired off a second series of scathing tweets.

May's government, meanwhile, has reiterated its "full support" for its ambassador to Washington.

The US President had already hit out at Theresa May and the British ambassador after emails describing the White House as "inept" and "incompetent" were leaked to the media.

In light of the criticism, Mrs May today told ministers it was "absolutely right" that they continued to give their full support to the United Kingdom ambassador to the US. "It is their job to give an honest assessment of what is happening in that country".

Sir Christopher Meyer told Today, "It was clearly somebody who set out deliberately to sabotage Sir Kim's ambassadorship, to make his position untenable and to have him replaced by somebody more congenial to the leaker".

Tory former foreign secretary Lord Hague told the BBC: "You can't change an ambassador at the demand of a host country".
