Hitting back, Trump tweeted: “I have been very critical about the way the UK and Prime Minister Theresa May handled Brexit. What a mess she and her representatives have created. I told her how it should be done, but she decided to go another way. I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well….
“….thought of within the U.S. We will no longer deal with him. The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new Prime Minister. While I thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent State Visit last month, it was the Queen who I was most impressed with!”
Trump’s intervention comes as Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage talked up his desire to help ensure a closer UK-US relationship post-Brexit.
He told the BBC: “Am I right the man to to try and help forge a better, closer relationship in terms of intelligence, security and trade with an Administration that contains friends of mine? Yes I could be very useful.”
Looks like Brexit Britain desperately needs a new Ambassador who can actually get along with President Trump and Co.
