Nigel Farage, who helped lead the campaign for the U.K. to leave the European Union, has some advice for Donald Trump ahead of the next U.S. presidential debate against Democrat Hillary Clinton.
“Don’t let her get under your skin,” Farage, the former leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), said in an interview on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” that’s scheduled to air Sunday. “Whatever abuse she throws at you, ignore her. Don’t defend yourself. There’s no point. There isn’t time."
The first presidential debate of 2016 on Sept. 27 saw both candidates go on the attack from the start. One moment that has prompted extended backlash from Trump was when Clinton, looking to hit the Republican on his attitude toward women, mentioned former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.
“What you’ve got to do, Donald, is talk to people sitting at home in their living rooms," said Farage, who’ll be one of Trump’s guests at the next debate, scheduled for Washington University in St. Louis on Oct. 9. “Don’t get involved in a catfight with Hillary.”
