The push to imprison former President Trump is motivated by an “irrational hatred” that might cause a “Civil War-like split” in the country, Brexit’s Nigel Farage said this week.
Before the first GOP debates of the upcoming presidential primary season, Mr. Farage wrote from Milwaukee that his old political partner and friend is going to have a big impact on the race, even though he won’t be taking part in the debates. But the Brexit leader said that the divisions seen so far throughout the primary will be nothing compared to what could happen to the whole country if the government really puts the former president in jail.
Farage claimed in an essay published in the Express newspaper publications that “an irrational anxiety and hatred” toward Donald Trump seemed to be leading America down a perilous path, one that might result in a “civil war-like split.”
“The majority of fair-minded Americans can understand that Trump is up against virtually nothing other than an Establishment-led witch-hunt since he is currently facing dozens of distinct criminal allegations, both personal as well as political,” he said.
“If people lose respect for the judiciary because they think it is becoming more political and ultimately decide that they will take things into their very own hands, it could cause the biggest split in America since the start of the Civil War.”
Mr. Farage had been a fan of Donald Trump for quite some time, and Trump was a strong supporter of the Brexit independence cause. Mr. Farage cautioned that “any more dents” in the “democratic armor of the world’s largest superpower would be bad news for everyone.”
The Brexit supporter who is now a host on GB News said that the world is full of political unrest and that we can’t “afford distractions” like putting the former president of the United States of America in jail for political reasons.
While Ukraine and Russia have taken over news headlines around the world in recent months, Mr. Farage noted that Communist China is on the verge of an economic disaster, with youth unemployment skyrocketing as a result of years of failed initiatives from the Xi Jinping administration, chief among them the harsh lockdown measures implemented as a consequence to the Wuhan virus.
Farage said that the communist ruler, whose main reason for being in power is to make the country’s economy better, might try to cover up his mistakes by invading Taiwan. He claimed that Trump might “be a maverick,” but that the former president’s ability to handle foreign policy surprised many people around the world.
On the other hand, it is “clear” that President Biden, who is 80 years old and “very slow,” “simply cannot provide” the type of powerful leadership that the West “desperately needs.”
