Trump flies in Nigel Farage to help sharpen up his debating skills

Nigel Farage flew to the US last night to coach Donald Trump ahead of his next presidential debate with Hillary Clinton.

The former Ukip leader will give the Republican nominee tips on how to defeat Mrs Clinton ahead of their second meeting in eight days’ time.

And Mr Farage – praised for his debating skills during the EU referendum campaign – will also offer help in the build-up to the final clash, which is on October 19.

Mr Farage has been brought in at the last minute after the first debate in New York earlier this week gave Democrat Mrs Clinton a boost in the polls. Republican advisers were said to have been frustrated by Mr Trump’s performance and vowed to prepare him more rigorously.
