U.K. ambassador to U.S. resigning after cables critical of Trump leaked

Johnson's remarks come a few days after US President Donald Trump hit out at outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May, describing her as "foolish" and claiming that her Brexit blueprint had been a disaster because she turned a blind eye to his advice.

Britain's ambassador to Washington resigned on Wednesday after days of criticism from Donald Trump following a leak of confidential memos in which Kim Darroch described the USA administration as inept. Parliament that she had spoken with Darroch Wednesday morning, and his resignation was a subject of "deep remorse".

Earlier than his resignation, a spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa Would maybe well's said that Darroch retained the manager's "pudgy reinforce". The Prime Minister spoke with Mr Darroch by phone for around five minutes, shortly before facing MPs.

Reports suggest that it was at that point that Darroch decided that he must resign.

May said the government did not share Darroch's views of the Trump administration, but that British ambassadors should have the freedom to give frank assessments, and that it was a matter of great regret that he had felt he had to quit.

Mr Trump has repeatedly called on the Federal Reserve to stimulate economic growth by lowering interest rates, but California Democrat and House Financial Services Committee chairwoman Maxine Waters urged Mr Powell "not to submit to the pressure tactics of this president".

On Wednesday, he expressed regret at Sir Kim's resignation and added that he hoped whoever leaked the e-mails "is run down, caught and eviscerated".

"There are a lot of people in the Commons who are very, very angry and feel that he has lost so much respect for having done what he has done". Trump had tweeted soon after he was elected in 2016, and that sentiment seemed to be part of the set-up that sent Darroch packing.

Sir Kim, who retires this Christmas, feels he can not continue doing his job effectively in this atmosphere.

"I have been very critical about the way the United Kingdom and Prime Minister Theresa May handled Brexit".

"I want all our public servants to have the confidence to be able to do that".

In a letter to the U.K. Foreign Office announcing his resignation, Darroch said that the "current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role".

"Time (to) put in a non-Remainer who wants a trade deal with America", he tweeted.

May could try to replace Darroch in the two weeks she has left, but she is unlikely to have enough time.
