igel Farage has described Barack Obama as a “creature” and joked about warning Donald Trump not to “touch” Theresa May.
The interim Ukip leader said the current US President was a “loathsome individual who couldn’t stand our country.”
Mr Farage also suggested he could act as a middle man between the next Republican President and the British Prime Minister, as he called on Mr Trump to try and “schmooze” her.
Speaking on TalkSport radio, he said: “I’m now going to become a diplomat. Come and schmooze Theresa – don’t touch her, for goodness sake.”
The radio programme’s presenters said: “Only in an affectionate way – like Bush did to the Queen.” To which Mr Farage replied: “I could be there as the responsible adult to make sure everything is OK.”
The Ukip leader played a prominent role in Mr Trump’s campaignand is thought to be the first British politician to address a Republican presidential election rally.
In August Mr Farage campaigned in Mississippi alongside Mr Trump, likening Brexit to the Trump movement, and saying he could not imagine voting for Hilary Clinton.
Mr Farage said in the radio interview: “That Obama creature – a loathsome individual who couldn’t stand our country. He said he’d be at the back of the queue, didn’t he? And Americans don’t use the word queue, they use the word line. So it was all a Dave and George stitch-up.
“What was interesting was that Trump said we’d be at the front of the queue. Listeners, bear this in mind, however imperfect Donald Trump may be, and he is, his mother was Scottish, he’s spent a lot of time in this country, he loves our country, what we stand for, and our culture.
“This is a big opportunity for all British business because once we’ve left that awful EU thing we can do our first trade deal with the United States of America. Isn’t that great?”
Mr Farage also suggested that he was the “catalyst” for the downfall of the” Blairites, the Clintonites, the Bushites”.
“All these dreadful people who work hand in glove with Goldman Sachs and everybody else, have made themselves rich, and ruined our countries,” he said. “I couldn’t be happier.”
