Nigel Farage: Clinton acts like she has ‘divine right’ to presidency
United Kingdom Independence Party Leader Nigel Farage has a message for Donald Trump: The United Kingdom’s problems are factors worse than those in the United States. But if his comments Tuesday are any indication, he is not too fond of Hillary Clinton.
“Donald Trump dares to talk about things other people want to brush under the carpet. What Mr. Trump is doing in America is very different than 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,” Farage told CNN’s Richard Quest on Tuesday in an interview from Brussels, Belgium.
Quest remarked that Trump would say the same thing about U.S. borders, to which Farage responded, “Well, the problem that you’ve got in the U.S. is illegal immigration. Our problem is legal immigration to half a billion people.”
“I think for the United Kingdom, I think Trump will be better for us than Barack Obama’s been. Of that, there is no doubt,” said Farage, who addressed the European Parliament days after the Brexit vote.
Asked whether he would like Hillary Clinton or prefer to sit out this early in the general election, Farage was unequivocal.
“There is nothing on Earth that could persuade me ever to vote for Hillary Clinton,” Farage said.
Quest followed up, “You sure you don’t want to think about that for a second?”
“No, absolutely not,” Farage said, laughing. “I mean she represents the pinnacle elite. It’s almost as if she feels she has this sort of divine right to have that job.”
