Trump on Monday said he would "no longer deal" with Darroch, claiming "he is not liked or well thought of within the U.S".

The US President's digital tirade against the British prime minister came hours after Downing Street reiterated the UK's ambassador to the US Kim Darroch has May's "full support" following the leak of diplomatic cables highly critical of Trump's presidency.

"He should speak to his country, and Prime Minister May, about their failed Brexit negotiation, and not be upset with my criticism of how badly it was handled", Trump tweeted.

He also lashed out at Mrs May for making a making a "mess" of Brexit - the most strident public criticism of a British PM by a U.S. president in decades - in an explosive series of tweets.

Kim Darroch also called Trump's White House "uniquely dysfunctional".

Trump concluded his tweets by demanding that someone tell Darroch "the U.S. now has the best Economy & Military anywhere in the World, by far and they are both only getting bigger, better and stronger.Thank you, Mr. President!"

The first indication of that became evident when the ambassador was "uninvited" to a White House dinner on Monday evening held in honour of the Emir of Qatar.

May's spokesman, James Slack, told reporters, "Contact has been made with the Trump administration, setting out our view that we believe the leak is unacceptable".

While ministers and May's spokesman have stated the leaked cables were only a partial reflection of Darroch's assessments and did not reflect the government's views, they have infuriated Trump who fired off a second series of scathing tweets.

The Foreign Office, which originally described the leak as "mischievous", launched a formal leak inquiry on Sunday.

British officials said they were hunting for the culprit behind the leak.

"You can't change an ambassador at the demand of a host country", Hague told the BBC.

"The ambassador remains in post and continues to carry out his duties with the full support of the PM".

Christopher Meyer, a former British ambassador to Washington, said there was a "possible range of villains". "It is their job to give an honest assessment of what is happening in that country".

The US President had already hit out at Theresa May and the British ambassador after emails describing the White House as "inept" and "incompetent" were leaked to the media.
