British Prime Minister Theresa May's government is reportedly outraged President-elect Donald Trump has suggested Brexit leader Nigel Farage would do a "great job" as an ambassador to the United States.

The Independent newspaper reported May's "fury" in a tweet touting Wednesday's coverage on the issue:

Trump started it all with this tweet late Monday:

May's office told the Independent on Tuesday "our diplomatic staff have been building those contacts and links in the run-up to the election."

"The President-elect talked about enjoying the same close relationship that [Ronald] Reagan and [Margaret] Thatcher did," her spokeswoman said. "I don't remember there being a third person in that relationship."

Kim Darroch has been ambassador since January, according to news reports. He has three decades of diplomatic experience.

Farage was active in Britain's withdrawal from the European Union, or Brexit. He leads of the UK's Independence Party, a right-wing rival to May's Conservative Party, according to reported.

Farage has slammed May's attacks by telling BBC News "the problem is that No. 10 keep on putting out press statements saying that I'm irrelevant.

"I would have thought that in the national interest, I might just be able to broker a coming together of these parties that don't know each other at all."

Trump and Farage have supported each other. Trump praised the Brexit movement — flew to New York City to meet the president-elect after his victory.

"This is a man with whom we can do business," Farage said after their session at Trump Tower.
