"We will no longer deal with" #UK Ambassador @KimDarroch, declares @POTUS.
Seeking clarification on what this actually means. @WhiteHouse not discussing on the record whether @KimDarroch is just a virtual 'persona non grata' in eyes of @POTUS or whether there'll be diplomatic ramifications. Queries being directed to @StateDept on that.
US and UK established diplomatic relations in 1785, broke relations when Washington declared war in 1812; relations were reestablished in 1815.
As of now, this statement remains on @StateDept website: "The United States has no closer ally than the United Kingdom, and British foreign policy emphasizes close coordination with the United States."…
And according to my colleague @cindysaine who just queried at Foggy Bottom, @StateDept referring reporters to @WhiteHouse on this.
Informed that @WhiteHouse actually asking media to contact @StateDept, response from officials there: 😲
Reaction from the former prime minister of #Sweden:
"A White House official confirms published reports that Sir Kim Darroch was uninvited from tonight’s dinner with the emir" of #Qatar, relays radio pool reporter @stevenportnoy.
