Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has sparked a row with Nigel Farage after the former Ukip leader shared a stage with Donald Trump.
Mrs Clinton, the Democratic nominee, laid into the outgoing Ukip leader after he travelled to America to appear alongside multi-millionaire Mr Trump on Wednesday.
She branded Mr Farage a “right-wing leader” and accused him of stirring up anti-immigrant sentiment, as she responded to the highly publicized meeting in Mississippi between the two men.
She said: “Just yesterday, one of Britain’s most prominent right wing leaders, a man named Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum to have Britain leave the European Union campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi.
“Farage has called for a bar on the children of legal immigrants from pubic schools and health services, has said women are, and I quote, worth less than men, and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race.
“That’s who Donald Trump wants by his side when he is addressing an audience of American voters.”
And Mr. Farage hit back at the former First Lady’s comments, tweeting her directly to say she should “spend more time speaking to working people rather than attacking me using dodgy half-quotes.”
He added that the 68-year-old was “running scared”, and compared her to Bob Geldof who “can’t accept Brexit”.
The 52-year-old said: “If I was a US citizen I wouldn’t vote for Hillary if she paid me.”
He used the opportunity to encourage Americans to take control of their own borders, economy and ultimately destiny.

The MEP said: “I come from Britain with a message of hope and optimism.
“When the little, ordinary people are prepared to stand up for what they believe you can overcome the big banks and multinationals.
“On June 23 we created our independence day – we smashed the establishment.”
He added that our cousins across the pond should take pride back – just as the British have done.
While addressing the 10,000-strong crowd at the rally, he blasted Barack Obama for warning Britain to vote remain, and laid in to Mr Trump’s political rival.
The GOP candidate provoked intrigue when he mysteriously tweeted from his official account, saying “They will soon be calling me Mr. Brexit”, which has been retweeted more than 13,000 times.
