(Washington Examiner) The White House barred British Ambassador to the U.S. Kim Darroch from dinner on Monday, fulfilling a threat made by President Trump earlier in the day.
Following unflattering comments he made about the president in diplomatic cables that leaked last weekend, Darroch was forbidden from attending the evening celebration hosted by Trump and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to honor the emir of Qatar, according to CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller.
"WH official confirms that British Ambassador Sir Kim Darroch was uninvited from tonight's dinner for the Amir of Qatar. Pres Trump made it clear the US will no longer deal with the Ambassador because of his blunt criticism of @POTUS in leaked messages home," Knoller wrote.
