August 25, 2016: Outgoing UKIP (UK Independence Party) leader Nigel Farage urged Republicans to “get your walking boots on” and drum up support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Farage addressed around 15,000 activists in Mississippi and said the party could beat the pollsters in the presidential race. As the leader of UKIP, Farage stood up to the EU and is credited for Brexit. “We reached those people who have never voted in their lives but believed by going out and voting for Brexit, they could take back control of their country, take back control of their borders and get back their pride and self-respect.”

Trump, who is trailing his rival Hillary Clinton in the opinion polls, backed the UK’s exit from the EU.

Farage drew on parallels between Trump’s bid for the White House and that of the Brexit campaign.  He said he “would not vote for Hillary Clinton even if you paid me”.

Trump referred to a report by Associated Press that showed more than half the people Clinton met as secretary of state were donors to the Clinton’s family foundation.  “It’s hard to tell where the Clinton Foundation ends and the state department begins,” Trump said adding that “she does not believe in America first, she believes in donors first. And special interests. And lobbyists.”
