Nigel Farage has posted a picture of himself having dinner with Donald Trump and his family in Washington. 

The former Ukip leader dined with the US President in Trump International Hotel with the US President and a number of his close advisors.

It comes as Mr Farage travelled to Washington to tell Mr Trump's followers that they are part of a "global revolution" that began with Brexit.

He was greeted with a standing ovation at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and he spoke of the "Brexit mania" he had witnessed after travelling to the US to take part in a Trump rally.

"I'm proud to be a part of that campaign, I really am," he said, adding that he was beginning to feel "more American" ever since Mr Trump's victory.

Last night he appeared to dining with Mr Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, his son in law Jared Kushner, and Governor Rick Scott.

Dan Jukes, a member of Mr Trump's communication staff, was also pictured at the hotel.

Speaking in Maryland on Friday, Mr Farage spoke out against globalism, saying "our real friends in the world speak English", and alluded to upcoming European elections.

Ahead of his speech, he spoke with the Telegraph about the first time he met Mr Trump.

"The first thing he told me when I met him was, 'you've done a great thing but when I win I'm going to supersede you,'" Mr Farage recounted with a laugh. "I said, 'you sure are.'"
