FARAGE RAPS MAY OVER U.S. HELP BID
NIGEL Farage has attacked Theresa May’s refusal to use him as a go-between with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump as “nonsense”.
The interim UKIP leader, who was the first foreign politician to meet the controversial tycoon since his election success, said “petty personal differences” should be set aside.
Number 10 dismissed suggestions that Mr Farage might become the “third person” in the relationship between Mr Trump and the Prime Minister, insisting the Government already has “well-established” channels of communication. But Mr Farage told ITV’s
Good Morning Britain: “Are they suggesting that they sack all civil servants, sack all ministers and the Prime Minister does everything? It’s nonsense, isn’t it?
“This Government has got a massive job to do with Brexit...all I have said is ‘I’ve got some connections, I’d like to help’.”
Mr Farage, who claimed he had been “bombarded” with calls from businesses seeking his help to strike up a relationship with the Trump administration, said: “If Government policy is to secure a free trade deal with the USA, if I can help make that happen I will do so.”
