Britain’s ambassador to the U. S. has described President Donald Trump’s administration as “dysfunctional” and “inept”.
A British minister also said on Monday that the statement, which reportedly emanated from a leaked memo may put the UK and the US relations at risk
The Trade Minister, Liam Fox, who is on a visit to Washington, said he would apologise to the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump, who he is due to meet during his trip.
“I will be apologising for the fact that either our civil service or elements of our political class have not lived up to the expectations that either we have or the U. S. has about their behaviour, which in this particular case has lapsed in a most extraordinary and unacceptable way,’’ he said.
“Malicious leaks of this nature are unprofessional, unethical and unpatriotic and can actually lead to damage to that relationship which can, therefore, affect our wider security interest,’’ he told BBC radio.
