WEAK and unstable Theresa May’s pop block on populist hero Nigel Farage meeting President Trump when the 45th President visits Britain next week could backfire according to sources.
An insider who works at Number 10 told Politicalite yesterday: “I’m neither a fan of Farage or Trump, but [Farage] seems to have a better relationship with Trump than Theresa, it’s all very odd.”
Theresa May has refused to make use of Mr Farage’s friendship with Trump even though Farage is the only political figure to have a relationship to the 45th President of the United States.
Farage hit back and said: “Clearly [Number 10] are very keen that I don’t meet the President or his entourage when they are over.
If I was to ask I would do that through the White House – but if that is the British Government’s position, I would not want to want to put the White House into a position of embarrassment.
It strikes me as ludicrous because I could be helpful as a bridge between the administrations.”
He added: “It’s a wasted opportunity.”
Another source told Politicalite: “This only makes a meeting more likely”
