Nigel Farage set to be ‘Donald Trump’s link to UK’ after election victory: ‘He won’t talk to No 10’

A political commentator has suggested Donald Trump will use Nigel Farage as his “UK link” following the general election result.

Speaking to GB News about the new Labour government, Theo Usherwood claimed that new foreign secretary David Lammy will find it “very difficult” to work with Mr Trump if he wins the US presidency in November.

“I think it’s going to be very, very difficult for Labour, and I think it’s going to cause real friction,” he said.

“Especially with the election of Nigel Farage, Donald Trump doesn’t care about formalities. He doesn’t do the playbook that Whitehall in London will want. He won’t go through No 10.”
