Nigel Farage says he is treated like a “rock star” in the US
The news comes after it was revealed that Mr Farage, who was recently signed up by LBC to host a new radio talk show four nights a week, has been hired by US cable channel Fox News as a paid contributor.
Speaking in Washington, where he attended the inauguration ceremony for the new President, Mr Farage said: “There is a huge temptation to up sticks and move to America.
“But I am not going to do it because of the Brexit process.”
Mr Farage says he still has an important role to play in Brussels where he is an MEP.
He said: “I couldn’t contemplate living anywhere else in the world. Moving to America is very tempting but it’s not going to happen.”
Mr Farage, who spoke at a Trump rally during the Presidential campaign, was the first British politician to meet the new President-elect after November’s result.

The many faces of Nigel Farage
Since then Mrs May has come under pressure to use Mr Farage as a go-between with Mr Trump but Downing Street has so far rejected those calls.
While in Washington, Mr Farage and Ukip donor Arron Banks had meetings with production companies about making a movie of the campaign to take Britain out of the European Union.
The pair also held meetings with a group of businessmen who want to enlist the help of Mr Farage in their campaign to split California into six smaller US states.
