Donald Trump meets with Nigel Farage – after turning down Corbyn
Nigel Farage was seen visiting the US ambassador's residence in London where President Donald Trump is staying during his state visit.
The Brexit Party leader was snapped in the back of a blacked-out car on his way into Winfield House, the US Ambassador's 12.5 acre residence in Regent's Park.
His visit follows the end of President Trump's official engagements for the day.
