Nigel Farage won’t run in UK election because Trump is a higher priority – POLITICO

But GB News made clear its priorities now lay on the other side of the Atlantic, stressing that the upcoming US election on November 5 was of “huge global significance”.

He was the first British politician to meet Trump after the latter’s 2016 election victory and has interviewed him numerous times.

The Brexit campaigner previously said he “can’t remember” whether Trump offered him a job if he returned to the White House. He has already been offered the role of UK ambassador to Washington to bridge the relationship between the Trump administration and the Labor government in London, although this is extremely unlikely.

Farage’s decision not to run will come as a relief to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, as the POLITICO poll shows Reform regularly polling above 10 per cent.

Farage last stood for Parliament in 2015, his seventh unsuccessful attempt at election to the House of Commons. In 2019, Farage withdrew his Brexit Party (predecessor to the Reform Party) candidates in seats held by the Conservatives, seen as helping to enable Boris Johnson to gain an 80-seat majority.
