The former Ukip leader, who has met several times with the President, claimed he should focus his energies on the task at hand instead of listening to anti-Trump rhetoric from the press.
Key figures in President Trump’s administration have become embroiled in several wars of words with the media since the property mogul was sworn in as the United States 45th president.
On Saturday, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said there was “an obsession to de-legitimise this president. We’re not going to sit around and take it” after many claimed the administration lied about the number of people who attended the inauguration ceremony.
Despite photos claiming to show more people in attendance at Mr Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama’s in 2009, Sean Spicer, White House press secretary said “no-one had numbers” for the inauguration.
Nigel Farage urged Donald Trump to ignore the US media, who are attacking him
They are showing their bad losers and they don’t respect the democratic process
Donald Trump said during a visit to the CIA on Saturday that it “looked like a million and a half people” had attended, but provided no evidence.
He called reporters “among the most dishonest human beings on Earth” for suggesting it was lower.
The New York Times, CNN and ABC News all denounced his “fake claims” and each went into detail to refute Mr Spicer’s claims.
Discussing the early pressure on President Trump from the US media, Mr Farage told Fox News: “The Trump administration have so much to do that perhaps what they need to start doing is what increasingly the viewing public are doing and that is just ignoring them.
“These organisations, who effectively, behave like political players themselves, and actually the people are interchangeable, aren’t they?
“They are losing audience share, they’re declining, and they will go on declining. They are showing their bad losers, they don’t respect the democratic process and fair-minded people will stop watching those channels in my opinion.”
