Video: Trump Tells Nigel Farage "Corbyn Would Be So Bad"

-edited

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage interviews trump. Let's tune in.

President Trump Video Interview with Brexit Party Leader

  • Trump says Farage is a "Great Tea Leaf Reader"
  • Trump tell Farage "I would like to see you and Boris get together. You would really have some numbers."
  • Trump says "Boris is the exact right guy for the times"
  • "Unstoppable force" if Farage and Johnson get together.
  • "Corbyn would be do bad for the country. He would take you into such bad places."

Johnson Disputes Trump Claim

"The PM negotiated a new deal which ensures that we take back control of our laws, trade, borders and money; a deal which people said he would never negotiate. Under this new deal, the whole of the UK will leave the EU customs union, which means we can strike our own free trade deals around the world from which every part of the UK will benefit."

I rather doubt this helps Johnson unless it influences Farage to work with Johnson, no strings attached.

I am open to other opinions, so let's ask.

Of course there needs to be a coalition. And I hope TBP stays true to its core mission, which is to deliver Brexit and not some shitty deal. I guess we'll see what Johnson will come up with and it better be good. He'd better not water down the promise to deliver Brexit. Like so many people here are saying, there's a lot of anger and people just want the people's vote to be honoured and a true Brexit (not just in name) to be delivered.

And I hate to parrot Trump, but he's quite right. Corbyn would be a disaster for the U.K.

We will soon find out but I can’t see the Tory party embracing TBP. They treat Farage like a leper and I suspect are arrogant enough to think they can do it all by themselves. There was a new poll today (published by the Evening Standard, edited by ’you know who’) which shows the Tories in the strongest position yet. I couldn’t work out when the poll was conducted and suspect there was an element of self-interest as there was some talk a month or so ago of Osborne making a political comeback. If it turns out to be the case that the Tories turn their backs on TBP I suspect they are in for a nasty surprise because the latter may end up targeting 40 or 50 Tory and Labour marginals really throw a spanner in the works. My guess is TBP simply don’t have the funds to sponsor a 650 candidate push.

There was a large backlash when Obama made comments about the 2016 Referendum. Trump is wrong to interfere in our election, even if he is correct in what he says about Corbyn. I don't think this has done Boris any favours. Labour will now go full tilt anti Trump and, by association, Boris.

Mish spends so much time on Brexit, perhaps he should move to the UK, instead of Utah. English speaking, single-payer health, spot of tea, Boris? Tally-ho.

Well, it is already past 10/31 - is Boris motionless in a ditch yet? Don't get me wrong, I wish him no mortal ill, but could he lie still for a couple of hours and breathe quietly and at least make us feel a bit better?

Well as anticipated, its Farage who wants a dialogue with the Tories, but they probably won’t play ball. He is trying to pressurise them by suggesting he would field some candidates here and others not there and I think has outlined the gravity of the Brexit situation. But the Tories are just so damn cocky and chipper with themselves I can’t see it happening. My own constituency, Westmorland and Lonsdale is a LibDem marginal hanging on by a thread with Farron only just getting in last time around. There was a recount. Its ripe to fall into Conservative hands. It would be very easy for Farage to field a candidate here just to screw up the Tory chances of success even with the probability of a LibDem retain. I feel that strongly let down and sincerely hope he does!

Bad mistake this is, Trump venting his opinions on Brexit ! Biased UK and EU msm do not like Trump's rant so this unnecessary and totally pointless 'interview' merely benefits the Remain camp....

Farage has made what I believe is an impossible demand on the liar. He asks that the liar reneges on his deal with the EU. The liar can't do that. 4 way general election, first time since the early 1920s.
