Nigel Farage said that Brexit will act as a “good omen” for President Donald Trump’s re-election, just as it did after the referendum vote in 2016.
The leader of the Brexit Party, Nigel Farage, who is currently in America for the State of the Union address, said that Britain’s exit from the European Union confirms President Trump’s world view, adding that Brexit bodes well for President Trump’s chances in the 2020 election.
“The referendum vote was a very good omen for him in 2016, and I would have thought it was quite a good omen for him in 2020,” Farage told the Washington Examiner.
“Some people think it’s the most significant thing for Britain since 1945,” he said, adding that “it is a very, very significant break and it plays into the president’s view that the world should be nations, free-market democracies and not globalist bureaucracies”.
Mr Farage said that as he will no longer serve as a Member of the European Parliament, he intends to spend a lot of time the United States this year, joking that “it is actually easier to get to the U.S. East Coast than Strasbourg, which is bizarre”.
“I have a lot of friends here. It’s a great political year in America. So I expect to be here a bit,” said the former MEP.
