Jess Phillips Attacks ‘Hate Peddling’ Nigel Farage For Questioning Donald Trump Sexual Assault Claims

Nigel Farage is a “hate peddling soothsayer” Labour MP Jess Phillips said today, after the Ukip leader questioned the timing of sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump.

Speaking on ITV’s Peston on Sunday this morning, the Ukip leader said it was “strange” the women had only gone public with the claims when the November 8 presidential election was so close.

Phillips, who worked for a domestic sexual abuse charity before becoming an MP in 2015, told Robert Peston she wanted to “shout at Nigel Farage’s face for almost the entire time he was speaking”.

“I will find Nigel Farage after this programme and tell him the millions of reasons women don’t come forward when powerful men control them,” she added.
