Based on the populist, anti-establishment wave that has propelled both men to unprecedented political heights, many Donald Trump supporters here in America have compared the Republican presumptive nominee to British “Brexit leader,” MEP (Member of the European Parliament), and longtime UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage.
So, what does Mr. Farage think of Mr. Trump? Thankfully, CNN’s Richard Quest brought up the topic with Farage on Wednesday when he compared some of Trump’s rhetoric with UKIP positions.
“You are starting to sound like Donald Trump,” Quest told the British UKIP leader. “He admires the Brexit result. He said it was fantastic, it was brilliant. Do you admire Donald Trump in this US presidential election?”
“Well,” responded Farage. “Donald Trump dares to talk about things that other people want to brush under the carpet. But what Mr. Trump is doing in America is very different from what I’m trying to do in the United Kingdom.
My problem in politics is far greater than Donald Trump’s. We literally have lost our sovereignty, lost our borders, lost our ability to regulate…”
When told that Trump would likely say the same thing about America’s borders, Farage quickly responded with a key difference, “Well the problem that you’ve got in the US is illegal immigration. Our problem is legal immigration to half a billion people.”
Indeed, the talking points of many conservatives who still want to remain politically correct runs along the lines of if we just had legal instead of illegal immigration things would be OK. What they don’t realize is that even legal immigration from the Third World, especially from Muslim countries whose cultures are incompatible with Western values, results in the exact same negative ramifications for the host country.
The real question is, at what point is any Western country ever allowed to say enough immigration is enough, period?
When asked which candidate he would prefer, Farage didn’t mince words, saying, “Well I think for the United Kingdom, I think Trump would be better for us than Barack Obama has been, of that there is no doubt.”
So, how about Hillary Clinton?
“There is nothing on Earth that could persuade me ever to vote for Hillary Clinton,” Farage told Quest, who then asked if Farage wanted to think about that.
“No, absolutely not. She represents the political elite. It’s almost as if she feels she has this sort of divine right to have that job.”
