"I could not possibly tell you how you should vote in this election... I will say this. If I was an American citizen, I wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me. In fact, I wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton if she paid me," Farage told Trump supporters at an election rally in Jackson, Mississippi on Thursday.

In his speech, Farage from the UK Independence Party, who was responsible for the UK leaving the EU, drew comparisons between Brexit and the US presidential election.

He urged people to defeat pollsters, the media and the Washington establishment.

"I think you have a fantastic opportunity here with this campaign. I come to you from the UK with a message of hope and a message of optimism. It's a message that says if the little people, if the real people, if the ordinary, decent people are prepared to stand up and fight for what they believe in, we can overcome the big banks," Farage added.

This is one of the rarest occasion when a foreign political leader has addressed a public election rally in the US canvassing for one of the presidential candidates.
