UK to apologize after leaked memes call Trump ‘inept’ and ‘clumsy’

Britain’s International Trade Secretary Liam Fox arrives for a Cabinet meeting at 10 Downing Street in London.

The U.K.’s Trade Minister on Monday said he will apologize to Ivanka Trump after leaked diplomatic cables showed Britain’s ambassador to the United States describing President Trump as “dysfunctional” and “inept.”

Britain’s Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox is scheduled to meet with Ivanka Trump during his visit to Washington, Reuters reported.

Trump condemned Darroch, asserting that he has “not served the U.K. well,” and saying: “We are not big fans of that man.”

Fox also cautioned that the leak of confidential memos could damage relations between the two countries.

“Malicious leaks of this nature are unprofessional, unethical and unpatriotic and can actually lead to a damage to that relationship which can therefore affect our wider security interest,” Fox said.
