Nigel Farage hit out at a Democratic Senator over US president Joe Biden’s already waning popularity, suggesting that the threat of Donald Trump’s re-election in 2024 is looming large than ever. Mr Farage suggested President Biden has failed to deliver on his campaign pledges so far and showing signs of unpopularity among voters.

“I think Trump was ultimately indicted for tax fraud. But Trump is involved and he’s raising money, he’s helped a lot of candidates, [but] some of those candidates don’t win.
“We will have the 2022 elections and most likely the democrats won’t prevail unless there is a big issue.
“But in 2024 the American people will have to decide. And I will see both sides, democrats and the republicans in the general election of 2024.
“But I am not panicked by politics.”

President Trump was slammed among others for how he went about America’s racial disparities and the way he handled COVID-19 which he described as “Fake News Media is going full on Covid, Covid, Covid.”
The virus eventually claimed around 250,000 American lives and a further 9 million were infected.
