(CNN)Cables from UK's ambassador to the US blast Trump as 'inept,' 'incompetent

Diplomatic cables sent from the United Kingdom's ambassador to the United States back to London describe President Donald Trump as "inept," "insecure" and "incompetent," a UK government official confirmed Saturday to CNN.

The leak could cause serious diplomatic damage between the two "special relationship" allies.

While foreign envoys of all nations are often candid in classified dispatches back home, there are periodic episodes when such assessments leak, causing great political embarrassment. Months of efforts by the ambassador, Sir Kim Darroch and his diplomats to build ties and trust with Trump and his political acolytes will be undermined.

(BBC)The Trump administration has been labelled "inept", insecure and incompetent in leaked emails from the UK ambassador to Washington.

Sir Kim Darroch said that the White House was "uniquely dysfunctional" and "divided" under Donald Trump.

But he also warned that the US president should not be written off.

The Foreign Office said the leak of the memos to the Mail on Sunday was "mischievous" but did not deny their accuracy.

The White House has not yet responded to the revelation of the contents of the memos, but it could test the so-called "special relationship" between the US and UK.

The ambassador isn't wrong... But I don't see this effecting anything really between US & UK relations. Their joined at the hip nothing can split it like Israel.

I’m not supprised that a professional diplomat would have this opinion of President Trump.
He is the antithesis of everything that is wrong with professional gov officials.
I would be more suprised and upset if he didn’t feel this way about President Trump.

If he is so inept and incompetent why is the US economy booming and has been booming since he took office? Meanwhile England is in stagnation as ours once was under Obama?

The U.K isn't doing too great itself with this joke called Boris Johnson as PM among plenty of other issues. The British economy is already getting worse under him thanks to how this bloke is dealing with Brexit. A lot of U.K officials need to take a good look at themselves in their mirror before insulting the administration of another country. The Trump admistration's seeming incompetence is miniscule compared to Johnson and the rest of the U.K government.

All of this coming from a chap in Manchester.
