U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage believes that Brexit set the stage for Donald Trump's stunning victory in the 2016 election.
On "The Cost of Freedom" today, Farage explained that Brexit gave ordinary people a chance to voice how they felt, and that's exactly what happened on Tuesday in the U.S.
He likened it to the victories of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher several decades ago, declaring that we now have the chance to make the world a better place.
Farage said it's important for Trump to act quickly and pragmatically once he takes office, particularly in cutting corporate taxes and boosting the economy.
"Then he can work on the rest of his agenda. But sending that big signal that he's pushing for jobs and for growth, do that and then he can do what he wants," Farage said.
He added that he's looking forward to the U.S. and the U.K. relationship improving under President Trump.
"He understands and recognizes what our two great nations have done together, between us. And thank goodness we're coming towards the end of an American president who doesn't."
