The European Union is celebrating its most important jobs in the world with its leaders today, with President Donald Trump praising the “beautiful” United States and Germany.
The president, who has been accused of racism by the European Commission for his plans to build a wall on the US border with Mexico, said the “world’s best jobs” are “coming to America”.
“These are the people that we want to be the best and brightest, to be able to compete on the global stage,” he said.
“The people that are doing well in the U.S., the people in Germany and the people of many other countries in the Western Hemisphere, are coming to the United States to compete and to be good citizens,” he added.
“And that’s what we want.
That’s what America wants.”
Mr Trump also praised the “great” “beauty” of the United Kingdom, praising the country for its “rich history and traditions”.
“We have been blessed by the beauty of the UK, by the great history and tradition of this great nation,” he told the leaders of the European Union.
“It’s a country that is really very proud of its traditions and its history.
It’s a great country.
It can do things that the rest of the world cannot.”
Mr Farage’s Brexit, which saw Britain leave the EU in a historic referendum in June, has been widely criticised by the United Nations, the European Parliament and the International Monetary Fund.
Mr Farage, a former Ukip leader who was forced out of office last year, said last week that the referendum was “the single greatest act of political suicide” since World War Two.
He said his party was “not anti-European” but was “very anti-immigrant”.
Mr Trump said that while the United states had the world’s best-paying jobs, he was “totally anti-immigration”.
“They want to take the jobs away from people that want to go to America, that want a better life,” he joked.
“I’m not going to say that’s the case, but I’ll say it’s the fact that we’re taking those jobs away.”
Mr Cameron was more circumspect, saying that while America had the “most important jobs”, Britain’s was “pretty good”.
“I think it’s a bit of a compliment,” he suggested.
“We’re a lot better than we are, but we’re certainly better than the EU.”
The UK is also home to some of the best universities in Europe.
The University of Oxford was named the “best place to do business” in the United Arab Emirates and ranked the best in the Middle East.
The University of Birmingham was named “the most attractive” and the “top-ranked university” in Britain.
