The current rock star of US politics was singled out as the most recognisable
over seas politician and given a hero's reception, and received the loudest
cheers at America's biggest gathering of political conservatives and
republicans.The Brexit party leader was taking part in a Brexit victory lap
during the week of the CPAC in the capital.
Whether at the bar of the Trump International Hotel in the city centre or the
Gaylord Convention centre in the National Harbour, Mr Farage - who is set
to take up a role later this year as one of Donald Trump's street campaigners
in to the run up to the US presidential election he was cheered throughout.
The most rapturous reception came when he addressed a packed CPAC hall.
Mr Farage followed Ivanka Trump, but not even the President's daughter,
who is as iconic to Republicans as she is hated by the Democrats could match
the welcome he received.
Mr Farage said Trump's victory was key to ending globalism and the "assault
on the nation state"
Ahead of the speech Mr Farage had been busy talking to Republicans in
Congress and appearing in a series of conservative radio and TV shows. He
also said "A US trade deal is not essential to help Brexit succeed, but it is
very important and would be very helpful."
