Trump also called him “a very stupid man”.

The official investigation was carried out by the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Parliament also called for an official investigation from the police amid anger over deteriorating diplomatic relations.

It was also reported that ambassador Darroch warned his country’s officials that the career of the US president could end in shame.
