Nigel Farage: Media, Europe 'Bewildered' Over Trump's Moves

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

President Donald Trump's bold foreign policy has left the media and European leaders "bewildered," according to Mr. Brexit, Nigel Farage, the former leader of England's Independence Party.

"People are bewildered because the newspaper headlines this morning say 'Trump walks away from G-7,' international disunity, what's the man doing?" Farage told "Fox & Friends" on Sunday morning.

"And, hey, here he is stepping onto the tarmac in Singapore in what is the most important international meeting that's happened, I think, for decades. So, I think to be honest with you, European leaders and European media are just a little bit confused right now."

Despite siding with President Trump's bold moves in tariffs, Farage is still skeptical the June 12 summit between Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un will deliver anything more than a few headlines. The two leaders just need to feel each other out in this first meeting, Farage said.

"Success, to me, is a meeting that ends with the two of them standing there saying, 'You know we come from different backgrounds, different cultures, but we kind of got on as people' – that, to me, at this stage would be a success," Farage told Fox News. "To expect some dramatic breakthrough at this first meeting simply isn't realistic."

Still, though, Farage said Trump's tariff talk from the G-7 summit was "good," because he is shaking up the world order just as he promised his voters.

"Look, the American people voted for a complete change of direction," Farage said. "They voted for a president who was not part of the global order – whether it's on Iran, whatever else it may be.

"And Trump said, 'Look, you know, there's a hypocrisy here. You put tariffs on our products, and that's fine; we put some tariffs on yours, and I'm the villain. I won't be spoken to like this.'

"I have to say many of us thought this was good. By the way, the other six were not as united as they pretend because what was noticeable was the new Italian premier will now get the red carpet rolled out in Washington. So, the old guard of Merkel and Co. may be unhappy with Trump, but they are diminishing in number, and the world is changing."
