Brexit Leader Nigel Farage Is Joining Fox News

Of course.

Brexit leader Nigel Farage is joining Fox News as a contributor, the network announced on Friday. 

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has followed Farage’s career. As the onetime head of the UK Independence Party, the conservative politician played a key role in pushing the referendum for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

He’s also an outspoken fan of Donald Trump and even traveled to Washington for the inauguration. The two men share a similar brand of populist rhetoric and hardline immigration views.

It seems that Trump is a fan of Farage as well. He recently said that the U.K. politician “would do a great job” if named that country’s ambassador to the U.S. (a position that is not currently vacant).
