The former Ukip leader defended President Trump’s policy despite it coming under fire from politicians this morning and said Britain also needed to bring in “extreme vetting”.
He said US leader was entitled to impose the ban after he was “elected to get tough” in a crackdown on potential jihadis entering the country.
The ban sees citizens from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen temporarily barred along with all refugees.
“I do [agree] because I think if you just look at what is happening in France and Germany, if you look at Mrs Merkel’s policy on this, which was to allow anybody in virtually from anywhere – look where it’s led to,” he said, speaking on BBC One’s Sunday Politics.
“He was elected to get tough, he was elected to say he will do everything within his power to protect America from infiltration by Isis terrorists.

"Now there are seven countries on that list, he is entitled to do this, he was voted in on this."
Mr Farage has previously called for Syrian refugees to be allowed into Britain but now said he agreed with President Trump.
"I mean frankly since I made those comments we had the Merkel madness, and I think Trump's policy in many ways has been shaped by what Mrs Merkel did,” he said.
"He is fully entitled to do this, and as far as we are concerned in this country, yes I would like to see extreme vetting."
The MEP said the US President was simply carrying out the will of the American people after making his intentions known during his election campaign.

He said: "We have elections so voters can make choices and they voted for Donald Trump to become president, and he said he will put bans in place and then move towards extreme vetting.
"Now, as far as Syria is concerned, he has made that decision. But that is what he was voted in for."
Mr Farage admitted there was a problem with Americans radicalised at home being responsible for recent attacks in the US.
He added: "But when you've got a problem already, why on earth would you wish to add to it?
"I would remind you that of the eight people who committed those atrocities in Paris, five of them had got into Europe posing as refugees. So, there is an issue here."
But Communities Secretary Sajid Javid slammed Nigel Farage for his comments.
He tweeted: “Farage is wrong to try and defend US immigration ban.
“These are not British values.”
