Criticism of President Trump is now surfacing from an unlikely place; the British Embassy here in Washington. In leaked cables, the U.K.'s ambassador to the U.S. calls President Trump's administration inept and incompetent and says the president radiates insecurity. The comments were first reported by The Mail on Sunday, a British tabloid newspaper. For more, we turn now to NPR's man in London, Frank Langfitt.
Hi, Frank.
FRANK LANGFITT, BYLINE: Hey. Good morning, Lulu.
GARCIA-NAVARRO: So not very diplomatic language...
LANGFITT: (Laughter) No.
GARCIA-NAVARRO: ...From one of Britain's top diplomats. I mean — yeah. What else did the U.K. Ambassador Kim Darroch have to say?
LANGFITT: A lot. Well, I mean, The Mail on Sunday had a ton in the paper today. And in one document, Darroch wrote, quote, "we don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal, less dysfunctional, less unpredictable, less faction-riven, less diplomatically clumsy and inept." He also said that when people need to make points to the president, they need to be simple and even blunt.
GARCIA-NAVARRO: Other allies in Western Europe have criticized President Trump. Are these comments by themselves surprising?
LANGFITT: No, and I think that's a really good point. You know, if you go back to April, the outgoing French ambassador of the U.S. publicly called Trump, quote, "whimsical, unpredictable and uninformed." And you hear these sorts of assessments throughout Europe, I think at least privately. This morning, I was talking to a guy named Lew Lukens. He spent several years as a top official in the U.S. Embassy here. He knows the British thinking well on Trump, and this is how Lukens put it.
LEWIS LUKENS: It's hard to argue with much that Sir Kim reports in his letter back to London. So he's doing what diplomats are paid to do, which is offer a really honest and candid assessment of the government to which he's represented. And I think he did that and pretty accurately from the sounds of it.

LANGFITT: And so not surprising; of course, the surprising part that this comes out publicly. People in London interested to see how the president may react. And the other question, of course, is why the leak in the first place.
GARCIA-NAVARRO: Yeah, the U.K.'s Foreign and Commonwealth Office called the leak mischievous, which leads me to ask, what sort of mischief might someone be trying to make by pushing this out?
LANGFITT: We don't know for sure, but I think you want to focus on the timing here. You know, the Tory Party members, the Conservative Party members, they're voting for their next leader. They just started this weekend. Effectively, this will become the prime minister. Most people expect Boris Johnson, hardcore brexiteer, will win. There's no suggestion that Johnson had anything to do with this leak, but this could provide a pretext to push Darroch out of Washington a bit earlier than he might be scheduled to leave. Darroch's pro-Europe. It would make it easier to replace him with a brexiteer. As we all know, President Trump is pro-Brexit. And the U.K. is desperate for a free trade deal with the U.S. once it eventually — who knows when this is going to be, Lulu — actually leaves the European Union.
GARCIA-NAVARRO: Yeah. And also, of course, President Trump doesn't like public criticism as we know.
LANGFITT: No, he does not.
GARCIA-NAVARRO: So could this do lasting damage to the close relationship between the two countries?
LANGFITT: You know, I don't think so. People are not responding to it that way in London this morning. Most people think it'll probably be a blip, especially if Darroch leaves sooner than later. And remember. You know, Boris Johnson once said of Trump — this was a quote some sometime ago. He said Trump displayed a stupefying ignorance and was, quote, "unfit to hold office." So (laughter), you know, in the past, Johnson hasn't been very kind about Trump either, but they both like each other a lot — their similar populist styles. People actually think if Johnson gets in, relationships could improve between the United States and the United Kingdom. And the president, so far, seems to have forgiven Mr. Johnson for his earlier unkind statements.
GARCIA-NAVARRO: That's NPR's Frank Langfitt in London.
Frank, thank you so much.
LANGFITT: Happy to do it, Lulu.

现在,对特朗普总统的批评从一个不太可能的地方浮现——英国驻美国大使馆Qo1pc^qIv7SqfBG。在泄露电报中,英国驻美国大使形容特朗普总统领导的政府“无能且不称职”,同时称总统本人散发着“不安全感”@LXSpQk*GOa8yp&RLS9。英国小报《星期日邮报》最先报道了这一评论3fh_m|P[I5q。下面我们来连线NPR新闻驻伦敦记者弗兰克·朗菲特,了解详细情况W*Dv49-M5g

加西亚·纳瓦罗:可这是一名英国最高外交官的言论Tc6EM4hcv;MxccD(0m。嗯3[wy%q,ft)Aw。英国驻美国大使金·达罗克还说了什么?
朗菲特:还有很多[-QxXGR[9^。《星期日邮报》在今天的报道中披露了大量内容(Q7w0)QqqZ9[s2!&g。达罗克在一份文件中写道:“我们并不认为本届政府会变得更加正常,不那么失调和不可预测、不再出现派系分裂、外交上也不再那么笨拙无能,XqUW]fI9lU-yu。”他还表示,在人们需要与总统沟通时,他们的观点需要足够简单,甚至直截了当S-8ysozif[W;[!
加西亚·纳瓦罗:西欧地区的其他盟友也对特朗普总统进行了指责CFRq&^H.O=rP1Zw+n(。他们发表的这些评论是否出人意料?
