Brexiteer Farage says he wants to be a bridge between UK and Trump

Leading Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage says he wants to be a bridge between the British government and the new U.S. administration, but the British government is dismissing the suggestion. Jillian Kitchener reports.

(RESTRICTED POOL, BBC, REUTERS) – Their chemistry is undeniable… and now, leading Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage says he wanted to be a bridge between the British government and the new U.S. administration.

But Farage said he didn’t think he’d get a role in the administration because he had a British passport… and he said Prime Minister Theresa May had banned members of her senior team of ministers from speaking to him.

Something Trade Secretary Liam Fox denies:

“Well, I have not had any such instruction…”

BBC’s Andrew Marr asked him to explain why Farage was turned down.

“I think we have got a perfectly good ambassador in Washington at the present time. Last time I looked there was no other vacancy.”

So now its a question of whether time will be on Farage’s side.
