After leading Conservatives criticised Donald Trump during his election campaign, Nigel Farage calls on Theresa May to apologise to the President on behalf of her party.
The Prime Minister’s closest advisers mocked the Republican in the run-up to the divisive vote in November 2016.
Even Boris Johnson previously stated: “The only reason I wouldn't go to some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump.”
Speaking on his LBC show ahead of Mrs May’s meeting with the US President on Friday, Nigel Farage demanded she apologised on behalf of the Conservatives.
“I think straight talking business men like Trump probably do bear grudges,” he said.
“I think what Mrs May needs to do early on in that meeting is to apologise for the bad blood there's been between the Conservatives and his campaign and attempt to wipe the slate clean and then crack on with a really positive meeting.”
