"Tell him the us now has the best economy and military anywhere in the world, by far and they are both only getting bigger, better and stronger".

Sir Kim Darroch earned the post of United Kingdom ambassador to the U.S. after serving as a close adviser to the governments of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron.

"We have made clear to the U.S. how unfortunate this leak is".

"The UK has a special and enduring relationship with the U.S. based on our long history and commitment to shared values and that will continue to be the case".

Memos from Kim Darroch were leaked to a British Sunday newspaper, infuriating Trump who launched a stinging Twitter attack on both the envoy and British Prime Minister Theresa May who had given him her full support.

"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", Darroch wrote.

Hunt wrote that "allies need to treat each other with respect", and said that "if I become PM our Ambassador stays".

Sir Kim Darroch has come under fire after some of his communications with London were leaked, detailing his concern over the state of Trump's administration. "The leak must have sprung because we are about to have a new prime minister, and that will nearly certainly be Boris Johnson. What a mess she and her representatives have created", he said.

The 9-bladed aperture, meanwhile, combined with the bright f/1.8 maximum, create smooth bokeh and excellent subject isolation. The SEL35F18F has an equivalent focal length of 52.5 mm along with a minimum focus distance of 22 cm (0.73 ft).

She also used that line of defence when Labour MP Justin Madders urged her to tell the two candidates vying her job to ensure the country does not crash out of the European Union without a deal in order for jobs at the Vauxhall manufacturing plant in his constituency to be saved. "I think there is a chance to do things differently, a chance to break away from the failed old can-kicking approaching".

British envoy to the US Kim Darroch has resigned following a leak of the embassy's memos in which he branded the current US president as "inept and "incompetent", predicting the latter will end up in "disgrace".

Britain prides itself on its "special relationship" with its closest ally and Trump himself described it as "the greatest alliance the world has ever known" during a lavish state visit last month.

Mr Johnson also expressed his regret, paying tribute to Sir Kim as a "superb diplomat" who he had worked with for many years.

Only a month after basking in the pageantry and lavish hospitality that only Queen Elizabeth II can lay on, President Donald Trump is back to telling Britain who is boss. "Sir Kim Darroch continues to have the Prime Minister's full support", a May spokesman said in a statement.

July 2018 - Trump delivered a withering verdict on Britain's Brexit strategy in an interview published just hours before holding talks with May in London, saying her strategy would "kill" any chance of a trade deal with the US and said she had not listened to his advice on how to negotiate with the EU.

"You can't change an ambassador at the demand of a host country", Hague told the BBC.
