Nigel Farage says he is waiting for & # 39; a call & # 39; to meet Donald Trump while Theresa May argues that the US president will appeal to her potential successor Boris Johnson during his state visit
- Farage praised Mr. Trump and said that so far with & # 39; great dignity & # 39; had acted
- The Boris Johnson team is silent about a protocol-engaging meeting with Trump
- Trump and May will not have one-on-one conversations – in an apparent rumbling against the prime minister
Nigel Farage remained wary today about whether he will land the political coup of a personal meeting with Donald Trump during the US President's state visit.
The leader of the Brexit party, who previously met Mr. Trump in the United States, said he would & # 39; wait and see if I got a call & # 39; from the leader's team for a chat.
It came when the Boris Johnson team revealed that he had a phone call with the president last night, but that he had rejected a personal meeting because he is taking part in Tory's senior speeches tonight.
Farage praised Mr. Trump this morning and said that on the first day of his visit yesterday with & # 39; great dignity & # 39; had worn – after Mr. Trump had launched a Twitter tirade at & # 39; stone-cold loser & # 39; Sadiq Khan.
Asked about meeting Mr. Trump, the Brexit party leader Good Morning Britain said: & I have met him many times before when it was & # 39; Oh, I'm free, maybe Nigel can come and visit me & # 39; so I'll wait and see if I get a call this afternoon.

Mr. Farage praised Mr. Trump this morning and said that on the first day of his visit yesterday with & # 39; great dignity & # 39; had worn
Mrs. May also attended the event this morning after meeting each other last night at the Royal Banquet at Buckingham Palace. Chancellor Philip Hammond was also present
& # 39; He behaved with great dignity yesterday and delivered a speech saying the right things.
& # 39; What people see in this country is an American president who has been chosen to make promises he actually makes, while our politicians make promises they do not intend to make. & # 39;
Donald Trump and Theresa May will not have one-on-one conversations during his state visit – in an apparent bumbling with the departing prime minister.
The American president and Mrs. May spoke this morning with ministers and senior officials on Downing Street.
But they have not planned time alone, even though Trump hopes for Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage on his three-day trip.
Sources near Mr. Johnson have suggested that the meeting with Trump & # 39; probably & # 39; would happen, but nothing has yet been publicly confirmed
Farage told MailOnline last week that No10 was trying to prevent him from seeing the president, whom he says he speaks regularly.
The Prime Minister's spokesperson tried to challenge the weak against her and claimed that the arrangements were normal for such visits. Messrs. Trump and Mrs. also go on a tour of the Churchill War Rooms, where Winston Churchill helped in the effort of the Second World War.
However, the lack of a one-to-one agreement will give the impression that Mr Trump's attention has already shifted to who comes after Mrs. May.
