Farage, a member of European Parliament and former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, said Trump chose to "intervene" for two reasons: he believes in Brexit and he feels the US has been let down. "But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?" he said.
During the interview with The Sun ahead of his visit to the UK, Trump said May ignored his advice by taking a soft stance on trade with the European Union as the UK exits and said that decision would "kill" any chance of an effective trade deal with the U.S.
Pres. Trump denies interview with The Sun was critical of Prime Minister Theresa May. "She's a total professional because when I saw her this morning, I said: "I want to apologize, because I said such good things about you".
While it seemed Trump had backtracked on his criticism of the Brexit plan, as the press conference went on he flagged up areas of concerns with the US's current trade with the EU.
Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson quit cabinet in protest over the proposals and Mrs May's Brexiteers are in open revolt as they try to kill off her Chequers plan - keeping in reserve the option of trying to depose her.
"The joint trade review's findings underline the continued strength of the bilateral relationship between the United Kingdom and India, and we are committed to driving forward this mutually beneficial trading arrangement", the spokesperson said.
Trump's visit to Britain followed two days of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium, where the US president shook up the conference with rhetoric about other members failing to meet fiscal defense requirements, the possibility that he could end the United States' 70-year membership in the alliance and Germany being "captive" to Russian energy.
Apart from the spectacularly undiplomatic fact of talking up a potential successor before meeting the actual Prime Minister, that is far from a majority view.
"I think he is a great representative for your country", Trump told the newspaper.
Trump disses 'fake news' CNN in joint press conference with May
At one moment in the press conference on Friday, CNN's Jim Acosta attempted to ask Trump a question. "Since you attacked CNN? ". Trump: " See, that's such dishonest reporting ", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together.

Antoine Griezmann mocks Chelsea, Courtois
France forward Antoine Griezmann has hit back at Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois's criticism of his team's style of play. I could do one thing and it was to play football. " Thibaut Courtois , he played at Atletico, he was a Spanish champion".
Delivering his statement on the 104-page White Paper to UK MPs who - unlike reporters in London and Brussels - were not given a chance to read it before publication, newly appointed Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said the proposal offered an "innovative and unprecedented economic partnership".
"I have a lot of respect for the prime minister", Trump said.
Trump's interview easily could overshadow the government's attempt to lay out plans for what it calls a "principled and pragmatic" Brexit. That will be up to her to say. "He's been very nice to me".
While insisting that he thinks May is a nice person, President Trump dismissed a report from The Washington Post that he thinks of the prime minister as "a bossy schoolteacher".
Trump followed a similar pattern at this week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit by slamming US allies at the outset but ultimately claiming North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was stronger than it was before.
In the interview, which took place at the U.S. Embassy in Brussels, the president also lashed out at the Muslim mayor of London, saying he had done "a bad job".
In London, demonstrators began gathering for a mass protest against Trump, beginning with the flying of a huge balloon of the president depicted as a crying baby outside the Houses of Parliament.
Blimp organizer Leo Murray told CNN the giant balloon had been created to speak to Trump "in a language that he understands, which is personal insults".
