The UK ambassador to the US, Sir Kim Darroch, who had confidential notes disparaging US President Donald Trump leaked to the media, has quit.

Trump, who subsequently launched a series of derisive tweets, disinviting the UK ambassador from White House functions and cutting off staff interaction with him, has stayed silent since news of Sir Kim Darroch‘s resignation and the major US media websites are also not reporting the story.

However it is clear the US President got his way and if you ever muddy Trump‘s path you will pay. Just ask former US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. former US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former chiefs of Staff Reince Priebus and John Kelly.

In the leaked notes, the diplomat called Trump’s government “uniquely dysfunctional”. “We don’t really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal,” Sir Kim added.

Darroch, who replaced Sir Peter Westmacott as the UK ambassador to the US in January 2016, also described Trump’s presidency as “incompetent” and “inept”.

US President Donald Trump has his own style but never loses when someone criticises him.

Trump vehemently responded in a series of tweets, which also criticised the outgoing UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

May said Darroch’s departure was “a matter of deep regret”.

Darroch said it was “impossible” for him to continue.

“Since the leak of official documents from this Embassy there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding my position and the duration of my remaining term as ambassador,” he said in a statement.

“I want to put an end to that speculation. The current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like.”

According to some UK government sources, Darroch decided to resign after Johnson refused to support him during the Tory leadership debate between Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt in the UK on Tuesday night, BBC News reported.

Johnson was asked repeatedly by fellow leadership candidate Jeremy Hunt whether he would keep Darroch in the post if he became prime minister, but refused to answer. It is understood Johnson spoke to Darroch on the phone on Wednesday afternoon (UK time).

Asked why he was not more supportive of Darroch, Johnson said it was “wrong to drag civil servants into the political arena”.

May said Darroch had had the full backing of the cabinet and he was owed an “enormous debt of gratitude” for his “lifetime of service” to the UK. Public servants should be able to give “full and frank advice”, she added.

“It’s heartbreaking that the president undermines US diplomacy and erodes our alliances, and Sir Kim was caught in the crossfire,” said Andrew Overton, an American who served as Darroch’s spokesman at the embassy until last year.
