LONDON — Nigel Farage, Britain’s populist champion of Brexit, says he will campaign alongside President Trump during next year’s election if he is invited to help the 2020 effort.
Farage’s role in an against-the-odds Brexit referendum win in 2016 led to him speaking at a Trump campaign event in Mississippi last time around.
“We reached those people who have never voted in their lives but believed by going out and voting for Brexit they could take back control of their country, take back control of their borders and get back their pride and self-respect,” he said with Trump standing beside him.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Farage, 55, said he was prepared to reprise the role.
“If I’m asked to. It’s as simple as that,” he said in his office close to Westminster, the center of British government.
“Never before in British history has anybody from the U.K. appeared on a platform in a U.S. presidential election, but they were a unique set of circumstances, and who’s to say where Brexit is going to be by then?”
