The two Brexiteers comment on Donald Trump's stunning election victory
Speaking on Donald J Trump’s momentous election victory, Leave.EU co-founder Arron Banks said:
“I am delighted for the American people for having chosen their own Nigel Farage as US President."
"First, there was Brexit, now the Americans have got one up on us by putting one of their own at the top of government. Just as they have learned from us, we can learn from them and sort Westminster out once and for all”.
“It’s inspiring to once again see so many millions of voters take charge of their destiny and purposefully disrupt the political establishment. Washington is as rotten as Westminster, I can only hope that others around the world will take inspiration from this too and shake things up."
“The EU referendum has triggered global change, we as British voters can be proud for having set in motion such events. Many others are now playing to our tune, long may it continue.”
Nigel Farage commented:
"Today, the establishment is in deep shock. Even more so than after Brexit.
"What we are witnessing is the end of a period of big business and big politics controlling our lives.
"Voters across the Western world want nation state democracy, proper border controls and to be in charge of their own lives.
"I commend Donald Trump for the courage with which he has fought this campaign and I look forward to a closer relationship between the USA and the UK.
"We now have a President who likes our country and understands our post-Brexit values.
"Prepare for further political shocks in the years to come."
