U.S. President Donald Trump criticized the British ambassador to Washington following the leak of memos penned by the envoy describing his administration in unflattering terms.

The Foreign Office is investigating the leak after the Mail on Sunday newspaper reported that Kim Darroch, a career diplomat who’s been his country’s top representative in Washington since 2016, described Trump as “inept” and “incompetent" in diplomatic cables and briefing notes to his bosses.
