President-elect Donald Trump bonded with Brexit leader Nigel Farage over common goals

Both galvanized a large anti-establishment vote to win unexpected victories in 2016

CNN —  

A new “Special Relationship” between Britain and the US has emerged: the relationship between Donald Trump and Nigel Farage.

Both men have turned voter disaffection into electoral triumph.

Farage did so in the now infamous Brexit – taking the UK out of the EU; Trump in winning the US presidency.

Both men identified the other as a brother in arms along the way. So much so that at one recent rally, Trump told his supporters: “We are going to do something so special. It will be so special. It will be an amazing day. It will be called Brexit plus plus plus.”
