'No Longer Deal' With Darroch: Trump
Updated on

The U.K. is trying to prevent a row with Donald Trump from escalating after the president froze out the British ambassador in Washington over leaked diplomatic memos.

“A period of cooling tempers is now required,” former U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague told BBC Radio on Tuesday, after Trump tweeted that his government “will no longer deal with” Kim Darroch. “The British government should be patient, not escalate things,” Hague said.
