U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out for a second day at Britain's ambassador to the United States, describing him as "wacky" and a "pompous fool," after a leak of emails critical of the American administration.
The series of tweets came hours after Prime Minister Theresa May stood by Kim Darroch amid the controversy over the release of the documents published in the Mail on Sunday newspaper. Darroch's forthright views have created awkwardness between two countries who often celebrate having a "special relationship."
Trump tweeted Tuesday: "The wacky Ambassador that the U.K. foisted upon the United States is not someone we are thrilled with, a very stupid guy."
Trump also criticized May for failing to get her deal on leaving the European Union through Parliament.
