Nigel Farage's Take On Trump Sharing Intelligence With Russia
Nigel Farage give his take on the latest White House storm.
Donald Trump found himself in the midst of another frenzy after admitting he discussed sensitive material with Russia - but Nigel Farage wants to know what’s the big deal?
The US President said it was his “absolute right” to discuss intelligence on terrorism and airline safety with Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and ambassador Sergey Kislyak last week.
US media reported that highly classified information from another country was passed on without permission.
But, even if this was the case, Nigel Farage is baffled as to why there’s such a media frenzy being made if he is helping to combat terrorism.
Speaking on his LBC show from Strasbourg, Nigel, an ally of Mr Trump, said: “I'm just very struck that frankly anything Trump does is jumped on by the opposition and the liberal media and made into a complete and utter storm.
“The National Security Adviser General McMaster has said tonight he's done absolutely nothing wrong and what an earth is wrong in sharing intelligence with another country to work together to fight against what Isis might do to our communities?
“I really find this row quite utterly extraordinary.”
