Nigel Farage is coming to Washington.
The Brexit boss will attend President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday. Farage is expected to land in the United States Sunday, according to a new report from The Sunday Times of London.
The arrival is a victory lap of sorts for the divisive British populist, who helped lead his country out of the European Union after years and turmoil and delay. Farage — who has become a cult figure among some American conservatives — says he had turned down multiple offers to relocate to the US to work as a radio host.
The British vote to leave the EU came just months before Trump’s upset triumph over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election and the pair are known to be chummy.
“Most of my interactions with Trump you never hear about,” he told the paper “He likes me because I don’t blab.”
