UKIP leader Nigel Farage says he’ll tell Trump: ‘Don’t touch’ Theresa May

Joseph McCormick November 11, 2016

Interim UKIP leader Nigel Farage has joked about telling US President-Elect Donald Trump “don’t touch” Theresa May.

Farage spoke on TalkRadio to which he dialled in to say he would step in as an intermediary between Trump and May.

Or rather he said he’d be the “responsible adult” who would tell Trump “don’t touch” the British Prime Minister.

Discussing the first meeting of Trump and May in their official capacities, and said: “[David] Cameron schmoozed Theresa. Don’t touch her for goodness sake.”

He had been asked about allegations of sexual assault, which had plagued Trump’s Presidential campaign.

Listen to the audio below, via the Guardian:

As Farage made his joke, the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon made her position on Donald Trump’s upcoming Presidency quite clear.

She said she would not observe a “diplomatic silence” over issues of racism, misogyny or other intolerance from the President Elect.

Sturgeon made it clear that she would “engage positively and constructively with the American administration”, but would “never shy away from standing up for these important principles”.

But she warned that she would “never shy away from standing up for these important principles”.

Sturgeon in June condemned comments made by Donald Trump in the wake of the Orlando massacre.

She consistently criticised the divisiveness of his campaign to be elected as President.

Back in 2015, she stripped him of his position as ambassador for Scottish businesses.
