America put a travel ban on all Brits visiting the country because of the Covid-19 crisis.

But US officials lifted the order to let Mr Farage — a close pal of the President — fly over after he was initially stopped from getting on a plane.

A spokesman said: “Mr Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom’s Brexit Party, was denied boarding while attempting to fly from the United Kingdom to the United States.

The US Department for Homeland Security confirmed he was given special treatment on the orders of the Trump administration as his visit was “in the national interest”.

Mr Farage was seen at a Donald Trump rally in Tulsa soon after.
