Donald Trump: send in Nigel Farage to negotiate with the EU

Trump can’t run his own country but he can’t resist telling other countries how to run their affairs.

Excerpt: Donald Trump has called on Britain to leave the European Union without a deal if Brussels refuses to meet its demands, as he urged the government to send Nigel Farage into the negotiations.

In his second extraordinary intervention into British politics ahead of this week’s state visit, the US president suggested the UK should “walk away” from talks and refuse to pay the £39bn divorce bill if its requests were not met.
