UK Brexit-backer Nigel Farage to Attend Trump Inauguration

Thursday, 05 January 2017 08:52 AM

LONDON (AP) — British anti-European Union politician Nigel Farage says he will attend Donald Trump's inauguration as U.S. president.

Farage, one of Trump's strongest U.K. supporters, told Sky News that he had been invited by Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant. He called the Jan. 20 ceremony in Washington "a great, historic event" and Trump's election "a political revolution."

Farage led the anti-EU U.K. Independence Party until November, and was a key player in Britain's vote to leave the bloc. He sees Trump as an anti-establishment ally, and visited the president-elect soon after the Nov. 8 U.S. vote.

Despite his animosity to the EU, Farage has been a member of the European Parliament since 1999. Starting next week he will also host a daily radio phone-in show on London's LBC, the station announced Thursday.
