US President Donald Trump has given a wide-ranging radio interview with UK politician Nigel Farage, discussing Brexit, the impeachment proceedings, and the death of the Islamic State group leader. The president talked with Farage after the House voted on the rules package for their impeachment probe. On Brexit and the upcoming general election in the UK, the US president urged Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson to join forces with Farage, an arch-Brexiteer and Johnson's political rival. Trump also talked about the recent killing of the Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, saying "he died a coward and he died a very rough death".
