One of Nigel Farage’s political allies dubbed their team the “Brex Pistols” following their much-publicised meeting with Donald Trump over the weekend.

Former UKIP leader Farage spent time with the President-elect in New York City on Saturday (November 12) – before Trump had even met the UK’s Prime Minister, Theresa May.

“It was a great honour to spend time with @realDonaldTrump. He was relaxed and full of good ideas. I’m confident he will be a good President,” Farage wrote as he shared a picture of the pair on Twitter.

Sharing a picture of himself with Farage and two other UKIP advisors following their meeting with Trump, Farage’s former chief of staff, Raheem Kassam, described the foursome as the “Brex Pistols”.

Kassam, the Editor in Chief of politically conservative American website Breitbart News, also shared a picture of himself, Farage and the two other advisors with President-elect Trump. “Thank you @realDonaldTrump for meeting with us today and being such a gracious and welcoming host. You’ll be a GREAT president,” he wrote.

Last month, Morrissey caused controversy among many of his fans when he hailed the Brexit result as “magnificent” – and called Nigel Farage a “liberal educator”.

His former The Smiths bandmate Johnny Marr has since responded to Morrissey’s comments, saying that he and the singer “probably don’t have much ideologically in common any more”.
