Nigel Farage has expressed his happiness at Donald Trump's election victory, suggesting the president-elect will be far more willing to do a trade deal with the UK than "loathsome creature" Barack Obama.
Mr Farage, the interim leader and figurehead of UKIP, told talkRADIO that, whereas Mr Obama had told the UK they would be "at the back of the line" for any post-Brexit deal with the US, Mr Trump has said precisely the opposite.
Speaking to James Whale, Mr Farage also suggested the soon-to-be-American leader should come over and "schmooze" Theresa May - but joked it's probably best he doesn't touch her.
Prior to Mr Trump's stunning victory on Tuesday, Mr Farage had talked of an ambassadorial role under the Republican billionaire, and he again raised the subject while talking to James.
