Nigel Farage has given the biggest hint yet that he won’t return to frontline British politics in time for the next general election.

The Reform UK founder, Farage, has said the United States president vote is more important than the United Kingdom vote.

According to The Telegraph, Farage has spent the past week in the United States instead of campaigning for Reform.

He downplayed the prospect of running as a candidate in the general election.

He said: “Yes, we’ve got an election year, but the biggest election in the world is taking place here. While I’m not ruling out anything in the UK completely, I think where I am this week is an indication of my thinking.”

The news that Farage might have bowed out of the election could be a boost to Rishi Sunak as it could end months of speculation about whether Farage would stand against the Conservatives.

Farage, the former UKIP and Brexit Party leader, played a significant role in getting David Cameron to agree to holding the Brexit referendum.

It was feared his return to frontline politics could chaos for the Tories.

However, it appears Farage is channelling his campaigning into the upcoming presidential elections in November.

He has been a big supporter of Trump since helping him campaign in 2016.

The pair struck up a friendship and speculation suggests Farage could be in-line for a job in a possible second Trump administration.

The 60-year-old added: “As I’ve said for some time, I’m weighing up a lot of options. Perhaps I’m in the fortunate position that I have a lot of attractive options this side of the pond.

“The Republicans really treat me like an American, they really do. I’ve been commuting back and forth politically for a long time.”
