Brexit leader Nigel Farage is planning to move to the U.S., according to a new report.


The Times reported Thursday that Farage and his wife, Kirsten, are planning to leave the U.K.

Insiders told the newspaper that Farage has had a long-held interest in the U.S. and would feel “freer” from public attention living abroad.

Farage was spotted entering Trump Tower on a Saturday earlier this month.

“We’re just tourists,” he told reporters when asked if he was invited there by President-elect Donald TrumpDonald TrumpMark Walker to stay in North Carolina Senate race Judge lays out schedule for Eastman to speed up records processing for Jan. 6 panel Michael Avenatti cross-examines Stormy Daniels in his own fraud trial MORE or if he was helping with the transition.

Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, later said that the president-elect and Farage had a "very productive" meeting.

“I think they enjoy each other’s company, and they absolutely had an opportunity to talk about freedom and winning and what this all means for the world,” she said.

Farage has said that he would welcome a role in the Trump administration and floated the idea of being Trump’s ambassador to the European Union.
