Text from usually calm UK diplomat: "He drops this shit right after the dinner?? Fucking ridiculous"

That was in a tweet from CNN analyst Juliette Kayyem this evening:




Text from calmest UK diplomat I know. Excuse the language: "we are all fuming right now. All month we’ve been preparing for tomorrow and he drops this shit right after the dinner?? Fucking ridiculous. Tomorrow will be a proper shit show now."

Editing to add that this has to be about the interview Trump gave the Sun, undermining May, an interview that came out while he was still at this evening's gala:

13. NYT *Trump Inserts Himself Into Brexit Debate Criticizing Theresa May*

"With May’s Government Teetering, Trump Gives It a Shove," By STEPHEN CASTLE, NYT, 3 hrs ago.

LONDON — President Trump put his brand of confrontational and disruptive diplomacy on full display Thursday, unsettling NATO allies with a blustering performance in Brussels and then, in a remarkable breach of protocol, publicly undercutting Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain in an interview published hours after landing in her country.
>>In the interview with THE SUN, Mr. Trump second-guessed Mrs. May’s handling of the main issue on her plate: how Britain should cut ties to the European Union. He cast doubt on whether he was willing to negotiate a new trade deal between Britain and the United States, and praised Mrs. May’s Conservative Party rival, Boris Johnson, as a potentially great prime minister.

The interview was published as Mr. Trump and Mrs. May were wrapping up what appeared to be a chummy dinner at Blenheim Palace — earlier, they had walked inside holding hands — and a day ahead of the president’s scheduled meeting with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle. There was no immediate response from the British government. “Well I think the deal that she is striking is not what the people voted on,” Mr. Trump said in the interview, speaking of the approach Mrs. May is taking to Britain’s exit from the European Union, or Brexit, under which the British economy would effectively continue to be subject to many European regulations.

Speaking of Mr. Johnson, who resigned this week as foreign secretary in protest over Mrs. May’s Brexit strategy and who has long been seen as likely to challenge her for her job, Mr. Trump said: “Well I am not pitting one against the other. I’m just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. I think he’s got what it takes and I think he’s got the right attitude to be a great prime minister.”
Coming after his combative performance in Brussels with leaders of the 28 other NATO nations, the day amounted to a global disruption tour unlike anything undertaken by any other recent American president. In Brussels on Thursday, Mr. Trump said he supported NATO but seemed to suggest that the United States could leave if the allies didn’t increase defense spending. He claimed credit for pressing members to pledge increases in their military budgets, though some denied any such promises were made...More...

6. I've edited the OP to explain this is about the Sun interview. Sorry if the

diplomat's reaction seemed confusing, but with all the news tonight about what Trump said in that crazy interview, I thought it was obvious what the diplomat was reacting to.

8. This is what a real shit show looks like

Cheeto will have most of Europe fuming at him by the time he comes home. I hope the Europeans are able to distinguish that what he says and does is not the true will of the American people. I'm not necessarily very religious but, God save us all from this insanity.

15. What did the May government expect?

They are idiots if they assumed he wouldn't act in his usual deplorable way.
