At Donald Trump’s rally in Mississippi this evening, Brexit advocate Nigel Farage appeared on stage to compare the United Kingdom’s vote to Trump’s presidential campaign.
Trump himself spent several minutes discussing Brexit, saying that Britain declared its independence in June and that America will do the same thing on November 8th. He also said that with Brexit, the average citizen was told to vote one way by the establishment and the mainstream media, but they went another way. Brexit, therefore, was pitched as an inspiring story for those Trump supporters feeling discouraged by the lagging polls.
Trump was then joined on stage by former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage, who backed up Trump’s comparison and said that by voting Trump, the American people would be standing up to the pollsters and to the Washington establishment.
Farage also said that he wouldn’t be endorsing either candidate, but he did say that if he were an American citizen, he would not vote for Hillary Clinton if he was paid to.
“If you want change in this country, you better get your walking boots on, you better get out there campaigning, and remember, anything is possible if enough decent people are prepared to stand up against the establishment,” he concluded.
After the speech, Trump congratulated Farage and said that Brexit is now being seen as a “very wise decision.”
