Nigel said he felt the decision to fire James Comey was probably the biggest mistake made by the Oval Office but that the presidency so far was a resounding success, particularly praising Trump's political instincts.

He said: "When I saw him take on the NFL, and these players that were going down on the knee.

"I thought 'What on earth is he doing taking on another fight?' Here we are, six weeks in, big majority in the country agree with him, TV ratings for the NFL have gone down and big advertisers like Papa John's have announced that they're withdrawing some of their funding.

"The one thing he's got going for him is the most incredible instinct."
