It has today been revealed by UKIP Leader Nigel Farage that the US trade representative, who last week warned that the United States is not keen on pursuing a separate free trade deal with Britain if it leaves the European Union, failed to declare his interest in the subject before making his intervention in the ongoing EU Referendum debate as he formerly worked for the European Commission.
Prior to his current role, the US trade representative, Michael Froman, worked for the European Commission President's own internal think tank, the “Forward Studies Unit”.
Mr Farage revealed this fact speaking to Breitbart News Daily Radio following an appearance on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday.
He said: “Froman basically said that if Britain was to leave the European Union there would be no bilateral trade deal between the United States and the Untied Kingdom. It’s ludicrous.
“It is political interference by the Obama administration in the British referendum.
"Prior to being Obama’s trade envoy, he worked for the European Commission. He worked in Brussels for the Commission’s Forward Studies Unit.
“I am outraged at his interference”.
