Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has visited Trump Tower in New York for the third time, in what is likely to be a major embarrassment to UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who has yet to meet the US president-elect. US news reporters confirmed Farage entered the lobby of Trump Tower in New York at 2:23pm (EST) and went up in the elevator which takes visitors to Donald Trump’s office.
Farage was photographed grinning as he entered the foyer, but did not speak to reporters. Although it is unknown if Farage met with the president-elect, if he did it would be his third meeting since Trump won the US election last month.
The visit will further annoy the PM, who has yet to meet Trump and has only spoken to him briefly by phone. It comes after Farage reportedly went to a fancy dress party with Trump in Long Island New York earlier this month, where the British politician dressed as Lord Nelson.
Farage’s burgeoning ‘bromance’ with Trump was raised to new heights last month, when the leader-in-waiting broke with diplomatic convention to suggest the former UKIP chief should be made ambassador to the United States.
