Farage also took to Twitter to talk about the fun day he had spent with Trump:
This comes as a surprise to absolutely no one. Farage has a history of looking up to Trump and often tells the media how much he loves the former commander in chief.
Here are six moments when he has done just that:
- Mum lets daughter’s ex continue to live with them – and it’s sparked a major online debate
- Viral video shows police officer ‘racially profiling’ Black man at diner
- Justin Bieber shows off new dreadlocks – and is accused of cultural appropriation
- Man who claims he is Charles and Camilla’s son shares new photographic ‘evidence’
- Elon Musk says a ‘bunch of people will probably die’ during Mars mission
In 2016, Trump suggested Farage should become the British ambassador to the United States. Simpering Farage said it came as a “bolt out of the blue” and that he was “flattered by it”.
Wearing his hat
In February 2020, Nigel Farage took to his LBC show to show off his new Donald Trump merchandise. The hat said “Keep America Great” in a twist on Trump’s original campaign slogan “Make America Great Again”. He said Trump had gifted to him during a recent visit to the White House and revealed he had given him a new Brexit 50p coin in return. Lucky!
Arizona rally speech
In October 2020, Nigel Farage spoke at a Trump rally in Arizona during his unsuccessful re-election campaign. He called him the “most resilient and brave person” he had ever met. Trump was duly not elected for a second term.
Taking a gamble
Farage bet £10,000 that Trump would win the 2020 US election, so sure he was of Trump’s political prowess. This came after Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen announced he had placed a bet on Biden winning. We all know who came out the richer from that scenario...
Attending another rally
With seemingly little else to do, Farage continued his tour of Trump rallies during the election campaign and revealed that he had never (not once) gone to a music concert when he posted this tweet:
Despite Trump losing the election, the rhetoric did not stop and Farage continued to celebrate his speeches.
What a bromance.
