Brexit Official Praises Trump As ‘The New Ronald Reagan’

The leader of the movement to withdraw Britain from the European Union is comparing Donald Trump to one of the most popular U.S. presidents in history.

If the Republican nominee wins the election in November, he will “be the new Ronald Reagan,” Brexit campaign chief Nigel Farage predicted last weekend in an op-ed for the Daily Mail. “It is worth remembering that virtually everyone thought that Ronald Reagan was unfit to be the U.S. president before he made a huge success of his two terms.”

Farage wrote that when he attended a recent Trump rally in Mississippi, it “was more like a rock concert than a political meeting.” He added: “Trump was my warm-up man, but I gave him a bounce. … Most of the crowd I met after the rally had never voted in their lives. They are the same people who made Brexit happen. They see Washington as distant and aloof, just as many Leave voters saw rule from Brussels.”

CNN noted that Trump praised British voters for deciding to leave the European Union. On Aug. 18, he tweeted: “They will soon be calling me MR. BREXIT!” Farage wrote that he was “surprised, even slightly overwhelmed, by the warmth of (Trump’s) welcome and his huge support for Brexit.”

However, he acknowledged that the real-estate tycoon “has been highly controversial,” and that “some of his comments have not looked good and left him open to accusations of extremism.”
