Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump just received the support of Nigel Farage. The former UKIP leader told everyone present at a Trump rally in Mississippi that he would not vote for Hillary (even) if you paid me.Advertisement
Farage and Trump first met on Wednesday but the nominee has been a vocal supporter of Brexit. The two could be considered birds of the same feather whose ideals show a striking similarity. According to ITV, the crowd at the Donald Trump rally exploded into cheers as Nigel Farage began his speech with a bold statement.
Nigel Farage Backs Donald Trump
“I couldn’t possibly vote for who you should vote for in this election. But, if I was an American citizen I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me,”Farage said.
The former UKIP leader added that he still wouldn’t vote for her even if Hillary Clinton paid him. It is quite obvious the UK politician has no business voting in the United States. However his support for Trump does have its merits, and baggage.
For one, Farage’s support is good for Trump who still has trouble uniting the GOP. Brexit was seen by many conservatives as win against the left who have been championing globalization and multiculturalism.
However, this might also alienate some potential moderate-to-left wing supporters as Farage has been portrayed as a far-right character. Many leftists consider Brexit a step back for the UK and Nigel Farage is to blame for all its repercussions.
Farage stepped down as the leader of UKIP immediately after Brexit saying that he has done his job. Despite the promise of independence and prosperity, the UK is still feeling the effects of the referendum as it tries to adjust to a post-Brexit world.
While Trump is trying his best to unite a party that has been known to fragment several times in the past, Hillary Clinton is still ahead polls. However, recent scandals regarding the Clinton finances and her emails are still holding her back quite a bit.
