UK ambassador to US calls Trump "inept" and "dysfunctional"
He also said the presidency could "crash and burn".
Britain's ambassador in the United States has described President Donald Trump and his administration as "inept" and "uniquely dysfunctional", according to leaked diplomatic memos published on Sunday.
Ambassador Kim Darroch reportedly said that the White House was "uniquely dysfunctional" and "divided" under Donald Trump.
He also said the presidency could "crash and burn" and "end in disgrace", in the cache of secret cables and briefing notes sent back to Britain seen by the newspaper.
"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," he reportedly said.
He questioned whether the White House "will ever look competent".
Darroch said Trump was "dazzled" by his visit to UK but warned that the US will look after its own self interests and that it's a land of "America first."
