Mr. Nigel Farage was one of the strong supporters of President Donald Trump. He had been hailed by Donald, and the US president had even suggested to the British government to appoint him as Ambassador to the United States. He had also made it a point to request Nigel to speak at his election rallies. He was the first British politician to meet Donald after his surprise victory. All this has changed in a moment after it was learned that Donald had ordered a cruise missile Attack on an Iraqi airfield. The former UKIP leader has gone against Donald Trump in no time.

He has criticized the US President's order to take military action against Syria. This is despite the close relations Nigel is supposed to have with Donald Trump.

Nigel and other Donald supporters

Mr. Nigel has also warned the British Prime Minister Theresa May not to get involved with Donald Trump's action in Syria. After the missile attack, Mr. Nigel in a statement said " I am very surprised by this. I think a lot of Trump supporters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying Where will it all end."

Mr. Nigel went on to add " as a firm supporter of Trump I say, yes, the pictures were horrible, but I am surprised whatever Assad's sins he is secular."

Many more right wing leaders who were previous supporters of Donald Trump have also turned against him.

UKIP leader Paul Nuttall is of the view that the US bombing of Syria last night was a rash trip, trigger happy, nonsensical and will achieve nothing. American right-wing commentator Ann Coulter was also hugely disappointed with the conduct of Donald Trump. She had campaigned for Donald, and now she feels that Trump has betrayed the trust of the voters.

UK IP Donor Aron Banks believes the president should have stayed out of the Middle East.

View of Ken Livingston

The former mayor of London Ken Livingstone states that Americans could not be believed. He pointed out that in 1964, the Gulf of Tonkin incident was created by President Johnson to attack North Vietnam. The facts came out after 20 years.

It came to light that the entire incident was fabricated. He feels that Assad may not be responsible for the nerve gas attack. He is the view that Donald Trump should have waited for the investigation report before ordering a missile attack.


The act of Donald Trump will have profound repercussions. It's clear he is not Putin's bunny, but it also shows that he has no coherent policy and takes decisions on the spur of the moment. Just two days back he had said that removing Assad was not central to US policy and now he says the opposite. This is bad for America
