Trump: Farage Would Make Great U.K. Ambassador to U.S.
U.S. President–elect Donald Trump suggested Britain should appoint U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage as the country’s ambassador in Washington. “Many people would like to see Nigel Farage represent Great Britain as their Ambassador to the United States,” Trump tweeted on Monday. “He would do a great job!” The unprecedented intervention could complicate relations with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May -- who has rejected Farage’s assertions that he is uniquely placed to forge ties with the Trump administration -- not to mention the current ambassador, Kim Darroch.
