Farage hails Trump as ‘bravest person I have ever met’ during Arizona rally
Brexit Party founder Nigel Farage appeared on stage with Donald Trump in Phoenix.
Brexit Party founder Nigel Farage has described Donald Trump as “the bravest person I have ever met” as he appeared on stage alongside the US president at a rally in Arizona.
Mr Trump introduced the former Ukip leader to his supporters at an airport in Phoenix, calling Mr Farage “a friend of mine, a lot of people say ‘one of the most powerful men in Europe'”.
Mr Farage told the crowd: “I have got to say four years ago I was honoured to come to America to bring the Brexit message, the message that you can beat the establishment.
“And that is what Donald Trump did – he beat the pollsters, he beat the media, he beat all the predictions, and here’s the worst bit: they’ve never forgiven him for it.
“They have spent four years trying to delegitimise him. Four years of the Russia hoax, four years of false impeachment – most human beings under that barrage would have given up.
“This is the single most resilient and bravest person I have ever met in my life.
“And when you vote next week you are not just voting for who the president of the United States of America is – vital though that question may be – you are voting for the leader of the free world.”
Mr Farage also spoke in support of the US president during his 2016 campaign.
