Daily Mail: Leaked cables show UK ambassador saying Trump abandoned Iran deal in act of ‘diplomatic vandalism’

The report comes following news last week that Darroch sent diplomatic cables describing President Donald Trump as “inept,” “insecure” and “incompetent,” a UK government official confirmed to CNN. Darroch has since resigned.

According to the Daily Mail Saturday, the former ambassador said Trump seemed to be discarding the Iran nuclear deal for “personality reasons,” as the deal had been agreed to by former President Barack Obama. The paper also reported that Darroch hinted at discord brewing between Trump’s closest aides and said the White House had failed to produce a “day-after” plan on how to handle the aftermath of withdrawing from the deal.

CNN has not seen the leaked cables and cannot confirm their contents.

The White House told CNN it has no comment on the story.

Trump said Monday that the White House would no longer deal with Darroch, and the UK Foreign Office announced Darroch’s resignation Wednesday….
