As US Presidential elections are approaching, the events are heating up around the candidates. Just recently, Donald Trump gave a joint speech with Nigel Farage at a rally in Jacksonville, Mississippi. Mr. Farage made obvious which side he backs. The main question arises here: Mr. Farage supports Trump?
August 25, AtoZForex – The disturbances around approaching US Presidential elections start to heat up, as Nigel Farage, the main Brexit supporter, stated that he would not give his vote for Hillary Clinton even if he was paid.
Mr. Farage supports Trump?
Nigel Farage, the ex-leader of the UK Independence Party, received a warm welcome by Donald Trump, as Mr. Trump has introduced him to 15,000 supporters at a rally in Jacksonville as a “man who orchestrated Brexit.”
The major part of Mr, Farage’s speech was highlighting the success of UK’s leave campaign, as he was explaining how he had reunited a “people’s army” to lead the UK out of the EU. As Mr. Farage stated in the beginning of his speech, he came "with a message of hope and optimism". Moreover, former Brexit-supporter stated:
"We did it - we made June 23 our independence day when we smashed the establishment. We reached those people who have never voted in their lives but believed they could take back control of their country, take back control of their borders, and get back their pride and self-respect."
However, Nigel Farage did not openly support Mr. Trump’s position in a US presidential race, but he made it clear that he would not vote for Mrs. Clinton either. Mr. Farage said during his speech:
"I could not possibly tell you how to vote in this election. But, you know, I get it. If I was an American citizen, I wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me. In fact, I wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton if she paid me."
Nigel Farage: Obama "talked down to us, as if we were nothing"
Nigel Farage has also criticized the current US President Barack Obama, supposedly due to the fact that Mr. Obama was supporting the “stay in the UK” trend in the EU referendum on 23rd of June. He stated that he "talked down to us as if we were nothing". As for Mr. Trump, he also has something to say about the Brexit matter:
"On June 23, the people of Britain voted to declare their independence - which is what we're also looking to do, folks - from their international government. They voted to reclaim control over immigration, over the economy, over the government. Working people, and the great people of the UK took control of their destiny. We will have one American nation, not divided. November 8 is our chance to re-declare American independence."
Nigel Farage believes that “there is a potential target out there that the Republican party needs to reach.” He stated that the UK has reached this target in Brexit and suggests that Republican Party supporters can do the same.
