UK Brexit campaigner Farage meets Donald Trump

Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage has become the first British politician to meet with Donald Trump since his US election win, the UK Independence Party (UKIP) confirmed late Saturday. The US president-elect hosted the euro-sceptic leader at his New York residence Trump Tower where they spent over an hour discussing the Republican’s “victory, global politics, and the status of Brexit”, according to a UKIP statement. The meeting will be seen by some as an embarrassment for British Prime Minister Theresa May who spoke with Trump by telephone this week, but has yet to meet him in person.
