President-elect Donald Trump should reach a new trade deal with the newly independent United Kingdom "to prove the anti-globalist movement isn't insular or small-minded," Brexit leader Nigel Farage said Friday.

"The special relationship between the UK and the United States during [President Barack] Obama's time did slip away," Farage, the former head of the United Kingdom Independence Party, told Jake Tapper on CNN. "Obama looked towards Germany really as being the most important country, and he saw the United Kingdom as a European political project rather than an independent state.

"I'm hoping to press the reset button on this relationship," Farage said.

Farage, 52, one of the leading voices in this past summer's Brexit vote, met with Trump last month at Trump Tower in New York — and the British politician attended a rally for the Republican in Mississippi in August.

"We voted for Brexit, so we will be an independent country again — and we have an incoming president who feels positive about it," Farage told Tapper. "I'm positive about this relationship."
