A US Congresswoman has made a number of Brits giddy with anticipation after she told Katie Hopkins she would be welcomed in America.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has recently been called out for repeated endorsements of political violence and extremism, warmed to her British equivalent during an interview this month.
The footage, shared on social media by Rex Chapman, shows the two outspoken figures bonding over the storming of the US Capitol, for which the Congresswomen says she has “no regrets” over.
She also said she would love to trade her for “some of our white people here that have no appreciation for our country”. To which an emotional Hopkins responded, “thank you”.
The reaction has been a mixture of disbelief and jubilation, with many Brits signalling how happy they would be with the exchange.
We’ve picked out some of the best comments so far:

I can never see Katie Hopkins without remembering her Campaign to Unify the Nation Trophy. pic.twitter.com/PQweRXNeXG— Rufus T. Firefly ? (@jrr226) January 27, 2021
We like to support the use of £2000 of public funds to export Katie Hopkins ?— Lloyd?️Hardy (@lloydhardy) January 28, 2021
Although I'm afraid the US might never forgive us.
Most welcome ☺️
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
