EXCLUSIVE…Farage Calls for More Action on Brexit, Says Trump is “Refreshing”

In an interview with NTK Network at CPAC, former UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage called for a quicker Brexit process and talked Donald Trump.

While touring the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, Nigel Farage stopped to talk to NTK Network about Brexit and Donald Trump.

Asked about Prime Minister Theresa May’s leadership on Brexit, Farage – a foe of May’s to her right – said “it sounds good.” When pressed by NTK, Farage said May gives “wonderful speeches,” but he hasn’t “seen any” action on Brexit.

Farage went on:

“Its over seven months since we voted to leave. We haven’t triggered Article 50. We’re being told that taking back our territorial waters may not be on the agenda. We’re being told we may want to stay part of the European arrest warrant system, and equally, David Davis, the Brexit secretary, said yesterday that quite possibly we would continue a free movement for many years to come. So, I think the jury’s out.”

May’s Brexit bill, which would allow her to trigger Article 50 at the end of March, is currently working through the House of Lords, after passing the House of Commons earlier.

Farage also addressed the presidency of Donald Trump, saying: “He’s trying to do something very unusual. He’s trying to put into place the platform upon which he was elected, which I find very refreshing.”
