- Nigel Farage says Republican nominee “dominated” Sunday’s debate
- Brexit campaign leader has repeatedly praised Trump in recent months
The Brexit campaign leader came out swinging for the Republican presidential nominee after Sunday night’s debate in St. Louis, telling multiple outlets that Trump looked like a “silverback gorilla” who “dominated” opponent Hillary Clinton.
“He looked like a big gorilla prowling the set. He is that big alpha male — that’s who he is, that’s who he is,” Farage said. “We all have comparisons to animals or whatever it may be, but that’s how he seems to me. The leader of the pack, that’s what he’s like.”
When pressed to name an animal comparison for Hillary Clinton, Farage said he hadn’t “worked that out yet” as he turned to leave.
Upon his return to the UK, Farage declared Trump “will be like the next Ronald Reagan” in a Daily Mail op-ed.
