British ambassador to US resigns over leaked memos

Three days after leaked memos to London critical of the U.S. president made headlines, Britain’s ambassador to Washington is going home. Kim Darroch resigned on Wednesday after Donald Trump refused to work with him in light of the disparaging remarks, notwithstanding the British-American “special relationship.”

Writing to the foreign office, Darroch acknowledged the speculation over whether he would stay on as ambassador, adding: “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.”

Simon McDonald, the top foreign office official, said he accepted the resignation with “deep personal regret,” praising Darroch’s “dignity, professionalism and class.”

In the leaked memos, Darroch described Trump as "incompetent," "inept," and "insecure".

Taking to Twitter earlier this week, Trump attacked both Darroch and Prime Minister Theresa May.
