Nigel Farage arrives at Trump Tower in bid to be first British politician to meet Donald Trump since election

Nigel Farage has arrived at Trump Tower as he bids to become the first British politician to meet Donald Trump since the election.

The interim Ukip leader visited Mr Trump’s headquarters in New York just hours after telling Theresa May that she has to “mend fences” with the President-elect.

Mr Farage refused yesterday to say whether he was meeting Mr Trump himself, instead telling several journalists that he was arriving as a tourist

The two struck up a friendship during the US election campaign, with Mr Trump referring to Mr Farage as “Mr Brexit” and inviting him to appear alongside him at a rally.

.@: “What we have to do is follow the example given to us over thirty years ago by Reagan and Thatcher.”

In an appearance on Fox News on Saturday, Mr Farage said that Mrs May’s team has been “quite rude” about Mr Trump. He is urging Mr Trump to meet her and hopes that the relationship will be similar to that of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.

Mr Farage said: “He understands and recognises what our two great nations have done together between us. And thank goodness we’re coming to the end of an American president who loathed us.”

He said they ignored criticism and their policies “made the world a better place”.

But he added: “Mrs May’s team have been quite rude about Trump so there are some fences to be mended.

“I think he’s got to meet her … We can have a sensible trade relationship, cut tariffs, we’re massive investors in each other’s countries. There’s a bright future.”

Earlier this week Mr Farage told a radio show that Mr Trump should “schmooze” Mrs May but “don’t touch her for goodness sake”.
