The former leader of Ukip, Nigel Farage, has flown to the US to coach the Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, for his next debate with Hillary Clinton.
Farage, who announced he would step down as leader of Ukip in July, less than two weeks after the country voted to leave the European Union, left for the US after the first presidential debate, which it is now widely accepted Clinton won.
In August, Farage appeared alongside Trump at a rally in Mississippi, during which the Republican nominee likened his presidential bid to the Brexit campaign. Farage stopped short of endorsing Trump outright, but said: “I will say this: if I was an American citizen, I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me.”
Farage hinted in his farewell speech at Ukip’s conference last month that he may return to Trump’s side, saying: “… and who knows I may even go back to the United States of America at some point.” Ukip sources at the conference also confirmed Farage would travel to the US to help support Trump before the election.
The British public need you more than the yanks, We have to many issues as a party to delve into issues that do not concern us. The new leadership will need guidance and support she can’t achieve that while you are with Mr Trump.
