Nigel Farage to GOP Convention: US Can Learn From Brexit Success

Nigel Farage, a leader in the successful Brexit campaign, is set to attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland as an observer.

Farage told USA Today that America can learn from the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union but didn't elaborate on what those lessons would be.

"Having criticized President Obama for getting involved in British politics, I am not about to endorse anybody," Farage said. "But I do know a lot of people in the Republican Party, and I'll be interested to hear what Donald Trump has to say in his big speech."

In April, Obama cautioned that the U.K. would find itself at the "back of the queue" in trade negotiations with the U.S. if it approved Brexit. Meanwhile, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Trump praised the Brexit vote, saying the U.K. "took their country back," The Hill noted.

Farage has recently stepped down as leader of the right-wing U.K. Independence Party, saying he had achieved his goal with the success of Brexit.

Farage didn't say who invited him to the convention, but said it wasn't Trump.

Last month Farage praised Trump, telling CNN the billionaire businessman "dares to talk about the things that other people want to sweep under the carpet. But what Mr. Trump is doing in America is very different from what I'm trying to do. My problem in British politics is far greater than Donald Trump's. We, literally, have lost our sovereignty, lost our borders, lost our ability to regulate."

Twitter users shared mixed reactions to the new of Farage's convention attendance.
