President-elect Donald J. Trump has ostensibly thrown his support behind the idea of UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage becoming the British Ambassador to the United States in a tweet issued late on Monday night.
The next president of the United States issued the statement, unprompted, via his Twitter feed, stating that the idea was popular amongst “many people” in a move that is sure to set the British political establishment into a further tailspin.

The tweet comes as the British political establishment struggles to deal with the fact that Mr. Farage was the first foreign politician to visit the President-elect after his victory over Secretary Hillary Clinton on November 8th.
The Prime Minister, Theresa May, and her Downing Street operation went into overdrive in order to play down Mr. Farage’s role in the U.S.-UK relationship, going so far as to label Mr. Farage an “irrelevance”.

The latest endorsement from President-elect Donald Trump will no doubt set the UK establishment into a further tailspin on the issue.
Over the weekend it became apparent that Mrs. May was ready to roll out the big guns, going so far as to extend an invitation for the President-elect to attend an official state visit at the home of Her Majesty the Queen at Windsor Castle.
But the move seems to have stiffened the President-elect’s resolve in his support for Mr. Farage.
The pair met, alongside Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassam and Leave.eu campaigners last weekend at his residence in Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan last weekend.
During the visit, Mr. Kassam and Mr. Farage both urged the President-elect to return the bust of Sir Winston Churchill to the Oval Office, which was removed by President Obama in a snub to the United Kingdom.
Mr. Farage has been keen to stress since the meeting that he would be amenable to any role in assisting the relationship between the two nations.
President-elect Trump was a keen supporter of the Brexit movement led by Mr. Farage, even going so far as to label his own victory “Brexit plus plus plus” and even introducing Mr. Farage at a rally in Jackson, Mississippi.
Mr. Farage has dealt with immense criticism on his side of the pond for supporting Mr. Trump, as even members of his own political party — including leadership candidates Paul Nuttall and Suzanne Evans, as well as party officials such as John Bickley and Douglas Carswell MP — criticised him for his support for then Republican candidate Donald Trump.
