United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage will cross the pond at the end of February to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU) just outside Washington, D.C., Breitbart News has learned exclusively.
“I am very excited to be coming to speak to so many freedom-loving individuals at CPAC this year – and I consider it an honour to do so,” Farage said in an emailed statement to Breitbart News. “In Britain, we are fighting against the creation of a client-state, against rampant corporatism, against a career political class that services vested interests and has forgotten about the world outside of their cosy, Westminster bubble. I understand that in the United States, the fight isn’t all that different. I look forward to meeting attendees and guests, and discussing how together, we can refuse to simply ‘manage decline’ and how we can alter the trajectory of our once great nations.”
CPAC will be held from Feb. 25 through Feb. 28 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. …
