Nigel Farage has revealed that Donald Trump will re-install a bust of Winston Churchill removed from the Oval Office by Barack Obama - in a clear sign of the friendship the new President wishes to foster with Britain, the Express reports.
The interim Ukip leader said Mr Trump has already pushed Britain to the front of the queue for a favourable trade relationship and added that he is the man to forge stronger ties with the US as he flew to visit the business tycoon in his first days as President Elect.
Mr Farage said: "We talked about the prospect of the United Kingdom being at the front of the queue, all of which was met positively."
His comments come after outgoing President Barack Obama told the UK earlier this year that its decision to leave the EU meant it would be at the "back of the queue" for trade talks.
The Ukip leader described Donald Trump as an "anglophile" and said his re-installation of the Churchill statue was a clear sign of his appreciation for the historically warm relationship between the allies.
He said: "At the end of our time with Trump we asked him if the bust of Sir Winston Churchill that Obama had removed from the Oval Office could be put back in its rightful place. He enthusiastically thought that was a good idea. Need I say more?"
Here is President Obama explaining why Winston Churchill's bust was removed from the Oval Office and replaced by one of Martin Luther King, who was, as the president points out, black, and thus 'perhaps more appropriate'.
Yeah, never mind the obvious racism:
