Nigel Farage says the UK would be in ‘a better place’ if President Trump had handled Brexit negotiations after a new poll put his party on top for the first time ever.
Mr Farage was speaking to a caller on his weekly LBC show about the impending arrival of Donald Trump for his state visit this week, when he suggested the US president might have been more successful in the Brexit negotiations.
The Brexit Party leader said: ‘If Donald Trump’s team had been in charge of these negotiations we would in a much better place than we are.’
Prior to his visit Mr Trump had suggested Mr Farage ‘has a lot to offer’ in negotiations with the EU and should be included in talks.
It comes as a new Opinium poll had the Brexit Party on top with 26 per cent of the vote, ahead of Labour on 22 per cent.
It is the first ever national poll to have the Brexit Party, fronted by Mr Farage, 55, on top.
