Nigel Farage to be Donald Trump’s go-between amid claims Special Relationship with US is faltering

Ministers will use Nigel Farage as an intermediary to build bridges with Donald Trump following accusations that the “special relationship” is faltering in the wake of his election.

The Telegraph understands that ministers will be forced to seek Mr Farage’s advice because they have no links to the President-elect’s inner circle.

Mrs May spoke to Mr Trump for the first time since his victory – but not until after he had spoken to the leaders of at least nine other nations.

Downing Street said that during the call, Mr Trump said that the UK is a “very, very special place for me and for our country” and suggested that he wants their relationship to be similar to the one enjoyed by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.

Nigel Farage calls US President Barack Obama a ‘loathsome individual’

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has described US President Barack Obama as a “loathsome individual” and a “creature” who “couldn’t stand our country”.

He told Talk Radio he “couldn’t be happier” about Donald Trump’s US election victory and that he would work to further trade relations.

Mr Farage said he would advise him: “Come and schmooze Theresa [May], but don’t touch her, for goodness’ sake.”

Mr Trump and Mr Farage campaigned alongside one another in August.

    • Don’t be too sure RR our Nigel normally gets his way , look how he got our country out of the shackles of the EU, We should be calling him lord farage


      • “Nigel normally gets his way”

        Utter nonsense!

        He stood for election to Westminster’s House of Commons 7 times starting in 1994 , and …

        As for UK leaving the EU, I’ll believe it when I see it, and I haven’t seen it yet.

        A while back there was a piece in the FT on his early career working for a company trading on the London Metal Exchange. He was hardly a star in that organisation. I’ll see if I can still find the article – I can remember showing it to Rothpol.

        I don’t mean to be unkind, but you haven’t actually managed to ever argue any case for anything, as far as I can see.

        Again I ask what is your basis for saying that the EU creates “shackles” for countries and that it is a “corrupt” organisation.

        I have never worked fro the Commission or for EuroStat but I have worked with them both often, and a lot of times I have found, particularly the Commission, a very frustrating organisation to deal with, overly Francophone, very inward looking, and often inept, but definitely not corrupt.


        • RR don’t worry about being unkind , I’m thick skinned , I just wish all the remoaners would accept the fact we’re out and I loved seeing our Nigel on tv the last few days
