‘Real opportunity’ for UK business with Donald Trump says Farage
Politicians must apologise to Donald Trump after criticising him as there is a “real opportunity” to improve trade with the US, according to Nigel Farage
UKIP leader, Nigel Farage was the first UK politician to meet with the president-elect. After he said “be in no doubt that Donald Trump was a supporter of the UK and willing to be very close partners.”
He added “Critics should stop whinging and just get on with it.”
“the UK is a special place” Trump once said
Trump, who will take office in January as the incoming US president has since had a phone conversation with Theresa May aswell as contact with other ministers.
Farage, campaigned alongside Mr Trump during the US election and has said that many British politicians, including those close to the PM, had been “quite rude” and should now re-think their attitudes.
“I do think that just too many members of this government said too many nasty things about the President-elect, and I think there has to be a mending of fences,” he said.
“There were huge opportunities to be had in Brexit Britain “Mr Farage said “and Donald Trump would be a much more accommodating partner than his predecessor Barack Obama”
The UK is favoured by not just the incoming president but his entire team of staff he said
“They like our country, they recognise what we’ve done together in the past, and they’re coming into this with an incredibly positive view. We need to seize the day.”
