Farage BLASTS Juncker for using Trump victory to 'destroy Nato and form an EU army'


The interim Ukip kingpin claimed that the president-elect is right to criticise the military alliance but that give ways no cause for Mr Juncker to pursue his “ridiculous dream” of a European force.

Address after becoming the first British politician to meet the victorious Republican since the plebiscite last week, Mr Farage told Sky News: “You’ve got Jean-Claude Juncker using the designation of President Trump as a means of trying to destroy Nato by pushing his comical dream of a European army.”

Despite being a vocal critic of the marriage, the Brexiteer was adamant that Britain would need to act to ensure US-Nato relations prolong.

He continued: “I have to say when Trump says America should not persist in to pick up such a big bill for Nato – I think he’s right the other fellows do need to pull their weight, and frankly there has been no precise reassessment of what Nato is ever since the Berlin wall be broached down over 25 years ago.

“I see this as being one of the reasons why it is compulsory that we have a good relationship with the USA because we are the bridge between America and the tea of the Nato members.

“And I would really want to see, at some point next year, a obtaining together of all Nato members to talk about their commitments, talk hither its structure and to talk about the future.

“But the more we hear from the European Togetherness that they wish to brush Nato aside the more I about it will be wrong to view Trump as being a threat to our security, but increasingly the European Allying that is.”

The Brexit cam igner also claimed that Great Britain inclination be at the front of any queue for any post-Brexit trade deal with the US when Mr Trump overcharges up his position in the Oval Office.

He said: “Not just President-elect Trump, but his unbroken team, are Anglophiles.

“They like our country, they recognise what we’ve done together in the over and they’re coming into this with an incredibly positive sentiment.

“That is good news – we need to seize the day.”

Ukip said the team spent over an hour discussing the president-elect’s victory, global civil affairs and the status of Brexit – after Downing Street didn’t seem biting for him to pursue the job of US ambassador to the UK.

On Twitter, Mr Farage posted: “It was a great honour to y out time with Donald Trump. He was relaxed and full of good sentiments.

“I’m confident he will be a good president. His support for the US-UK relationship is certainly strong. This is a man with whom we can do business.

“I was especially pleased at his acutely positive reaction to the idea that Sir Winton Churchill’s bust should be put move in reverse in the Oval Office.”
