A congressman has launched an investigation into the decision to allow Nigel Farage entry to the US to attend a Donald Trump rally, at a time when travel from the UK is banned due to the coronavirus.

US officials exempted Mr Farage from the country’s travel ban under the “national interest” clause of the restrictions. He was pictured at the event in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday night, holding a red MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat.

Bennie G. Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat who chairs the committee on homeland security, has requested all documents and information that led to the decision by the Trump administration.


“The decision of the Trump Administration to admit Mr Farage to the United States to enable him to attend a campaign rally at a time when most travel from the United Kingdom to the U.S. has been suspended raises numerous troubling questions, as does the claim that such travel was in the national interest,” he wrote in a letter to the acting secretary of the department of homeland security (DHS), Chad Wolf.
