The UK is threatening to tear up its defense alliance with the US after President Donald Trump's Iran crisis triggered a rupture between the two countries.
UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace told The Sunday Times that the UK was looking to forge stronger alliances with other international partners that shared its priorities.
He said the US under Trump risked withdrawing from its global leadership role. Wallace also said Trump threatened to tear up the US's intelligence-sharing relationship with the UK.
