U.K. Ambassador to the U.S. Calls Trump Administration 'Inept' in Leaked Memos
(LONDON) — Britain’s ambassador to the United States described the Trump administration as “diplomatically clumsy and inept” and said he doubted it would become “substantially more normal,” according to a leaked diplomatic cable published Sunday.
The memo was one of several leaked documents published by the Mail on Sunday in which Ambassador Kim Darroch made highly negative statements about the government of Britain’s closest ally.
这份备忘录是《星期日邮报》(Mail on Sunday)公布的几份泄密文件之一。在这些文件中，驻英国大使金 · 达罗克(Kim Darroch)对英国这个最亲密盟友的政府发表了高度负面的言论。
“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,” Darroch wrote in one memo.
The United States and the U.K. enjoy what each describe as a “special relationship” that has held strong since World War II. But the ambassador communicated deep unease with Trump’s foreign policies, which have broken with Britain’s on key issues such as climate change and preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

Deutsche Bank is yet to specify exactly where jobs will be lost.
But it said it intends to completely exit activities related to the buying and selling of shares, much of which is conducted in London and New York.

特别是梅根 · 拉宾诺(Megan Rapinoe) ，这位粉红头发的队长随着金球奖(Golden Ball)夺冠，成为最佳射手，金靴(Golden Boot)成为最佳射手，并成为全世界性别平等的捍卫者。
The U.S. won its record fourth Women's World Cup title and second in a row, beating the Netherlands 2-0 Sunday night when Rapinoe converted a tiebreaking penalty kick in the second half and Rose Lavelle added a goal.
