Nigel Farage met Donald Trump at the president-elect’s Trump Tower in New York on Saturday evening – and used the meeting to talk about installing a statue of Winston Churchill in the White House.
The Ukip leader is the first foreign politician to meet Trump since he beat Hillary Clinton at Tuesday’s election.
Following the hour-long conversation, the two right-wing populists, who have railed against the global elite, posed for a photograph in a golden elevator.
“It was a great honour to spend time with Donald Trump. He was relaxed, and full of good ideas. I’m confident he will be a good President. His support for the U.S.-UK relationship is very strong. This is a man with whom we can do business,” Farage said.
He added: “I was especially pleased at his very positive reaction to the idea that Sir Winston Churchill’s bust should be put back in the Oval Office”.
Although President Obama has begun the transfer of power to Trump. Leading Democrats have not forgotten the campaign run by the Republican which they said “emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America”.
As the meeting between Farage and Trump took place, thousands of anti-Trump protesters marched through the streets of New York. Many are angry that while Trump won the electoral college – Clinton won the popular vote.
