NIGEL FARAGE has lauded Donald Trump's astonishing election victory, describing his win over Hillary Clinton as bigger than Brexit.Mr Farage compared the US election to Britain’s decision to leave the European Union as he claimed the political class is now "reviled” across the Western world. Following a series of wins in key battleground states Mr Trump has now become the 45th American President. Speaking to ITV, Mr Farage said the predicted victory would be one of “two great political revolutions” seen across the world in 2016. He said: “I’m not particularly surprised because the political class is reviled across much of the West, the polling industry is bankrupt and the press just hasn’t woken up to what’s going on in the world.“So, 2016, by the looks of it, is going to be the year of two great political revolutions. “I thought Brexit was big, but boy, this looks like it’s going to be even bigger.” Pundits stateside on both TV and newspapers who had predicted Mrs Clinton to win at the start of the night were left dumbfounded as Mr Trump ascended to the highest political office in the US.A political commentator, who served under Mrs Clinton, already started to roll out the excuses for her former boss' defeat. Speaking soon after the key swing state of Florida was called for Mr Trump, Jehmu Greene, a Clinton appointee from her time as Secretary of State, tried to deflect the blame away from the Democratic nominee.Speaking on Sky News, she said: “Let’s just look back at this election. “Hillary Clinton was running against Donald Trump, she was also running against Russia. “She then started running against the FBI, director Comey, the leaks that were coming out. She was running against history and 238 years of men in the White House.” she added: “If anyone can do it [win the election] Hillary Clinton can.” Ms Greene was referring to repeated claims Mrs Clinton and the Democratic party had been targeted by Kremlin-backed hackers.
