Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage responded to social media critics who accused him of breaking UK quarantine rules, after he posted a photo of himself drinking at a pub Saturday following a recent trip to the US to attend a Trump rally.
In a tweet, Farage said: “To all those screaming and shouting about me going to the pub…. I have been back from the USA for 2 weeks and I have been tested — the result was negative. Sorry to disappoint you. Cheers!”
Farage faced a flood of critical comments after tweeting picture of himself holding a pint of beer Saturday — the first day pubs reopened in England after lockdown — with the caption “12 o’clock, first customer in. Love it.”
Farage was in the US for President Trump’s Tulsa rally on Saturday June 20. UK quarantine rules state that anyone flying in from abroad has to self-isolate for 14 days.
