Nigel Farage: Trump, May Meeting Good News for Both

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

President Donald Trump's upcoming meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May is good news for both countries, but it is logical that Trump will put the United States first, former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage said Monday.

"You put your family first, but that doesn't mean you can't cooperate with the next door neighbors and do things to the mutual benefit," the Brexit leader, named as a Fox News contributor, told the network's "Fox & Friends" program.

Farage, who often advised Trump during his successful 2016 campaign, said he likes to think the Brexit vote to separate his country from the European Union was a factor in Trump's win.

"I think the fact about Brexit was that the entire establishment, including nearly all the liberal media said that Brexit couldn't happen, said that Brexit would never happen, and despite all of that, the little guys, the Davids managed to beat the Goliath," said Farage.

Farage said it remains to be seen what his role will be with the Trump administration, but he remains an "insider, particularly, with the European Union."

"I've been part of that machine, the European Parliaments in 1999," said Farage. "We have some major events in Europe that will unfold in 2017. And if I can help with advice and knowledge as to what's going on, I'll be very happy to do so."

Farage said he would advise Trump to ignore hostile media outlets who "effectively behave like political players themselves," much like the public is.

"They're declining, and they will go on declining because what they're showing with the behavior towards Trump," said Farage.

"The kind of negative stories they're running showing they're bad losers, they don't respect the democratic process, and fair-minded people will stop watching those channels, in my opinion."

Meanwhile, the United States and Britain have enjoyed a "very old alliance," without which there wouldn't have been a free world after 1945, but former President Barack Obama "quite willfully trashed that sole proprietorship."
