British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt on Tuesday slammed President Donald Trump over his criticism of UK Prime Minister Theresa May and UK Ambassador to the United States Sir Kim Darroch, calling the president’s tweets “disrespectful and wrong.”

Trump on Tuesday lashed out at Britain’s “wacky” ambassador to the United States after leaked cables revealed Darroch called the Trump administration “clumsy and inept” (among other things). On Twitter, Trump called the envoy “a very stupid guy” and criticized May over her handling of Brexit.
