British Ambassador to U.S. Reportedly Slaughters Trump in Leaked Secret Cables: ‘Radiates Insecurity,’ Could ‘Crash and Burn’

A leading British diplomat reportedly bashed President Donald Trump in leaked secret cables to Downing Street.

According to a report over the weekend from the Daily Mail, Kim Darroch — U.K. ambassador to the U.S. — completely trashed Trump to top British government officials.

“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 reportedly wrote.

The ambassador also wrote that Trump may “crash and burn,” and that the “worst cannot be ruled out” regarding Russia.

“And we could also be at the beginning of a downward spiral, rather than just a rollercoaster: something could emerge that leads to disgrace and downfall,” Darroch wrote. He added, “For a man who has risen to the highest office on the planet, President Trump radiates insecurity.”

The president was asked about the reported comments on Sunday afternoon. Suffice it to say, he was none too pleased.
