Nigel Farage was branded a liar in the European Parliament after he went on a tirade defending Donald Trump and criticising the EU.
Cheeky Labour MEP Seb Dance held up a “he’s lying to you” sign as Farage branded Trump’s America a “genuine democracy”.
The former UKIP leader was particularly vocal about the President’s decision to ban nationals from seven countries in the Middle East, saying Trump is motivated by protecting the United States of America from Islamic terrorism, whereas what has happened in this room and in governments around Europe is that you have welcomed these people into your own homes.
“It seems to me that with all the anti-Trump rhetoric coming from everywhere, actually what we’re hearing is the true nature of the European project which is anti-Americanism,” he said.

Donald Trump was right: THE ELECTION WAS RIGGED. In his favour.
