Would Farage and Hard Brexiters sell "British Sovereignty " to Trump?

It was once a common jibe against any of of us who exposed any form of Left or even Liberal belief that.

"If you love socialism so much go and live in Russia".
Maybe we should reverse this and tell Brexiters 

"If you love Trump so much , go and live in the US"
Already there has been a campaign for controversial columnist Katie Hopkins to keep a promise that 

 Katie Hopkins said she was leaving the UK
The only joyful note from last night... has pledged to move to USA if Trump won Need a hand to help you pack Katie?

Maybe she will be joined by UKIP leader Nigel Farage has described US President Barack Obama as a "loathsome individual" and a "creature" who "couldn't stand our country".

He told Talk Radio he "couldn't be happier" about Donald Trump's US election victory and that he would work to further trade relations.

Mr Farage said he would advise him: "Come and schmooze Theresa [May], but don't touch her, for goodness' sake."

Mr Trump and Mr Farage campaigned alongside one another in August.

He described the result as "Brexit times two", adding of his own role in events: "I'm the catalyst for the downfall of the Blairites, the Clintonites, the Bushites and all these dreadful people who, working hand-in-glove with Goldman Sachs and everybody else, have made themselves rich and ruined our countries."
He claimed Mr Trump, who will be inaugurated in January, "hates the EU even more than I do" and predicted an improvement in US-UK relations, saying: "That Obama creature, loathsome individual, couldn't stand our country. He said we'd be at the back of the queue [for trade deals], didn't he?
"What was interesting was that Trump said we'd be at the front of the queue."
Mr Farage said it was unlikely the US president-elect would take him on as an adviser, as he was not an American citizen, but told Talk Radio: 
"I will be encouraging him to make the United Kingdom his number one global priority."
Noticeably he has not ruled out working for a foreign power, which seems odd for someone who claimed the day after the LEAVE referendum 

"I got my country back".

I wonder what sought of Trade deal Farage would accept and whether it would accept the sought of deal that allows US companies into a privatised NHS

While the party remained, in general, on the fence regarding the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), William Legge, the 10th Earl of Dartmouth – commonly referred to as William Dartmouth – confirmed in an email exchange that should a transparent agreement come to pass, the party "wishes to see public services such as the NHS and education included in TTIP".

I have always suspected that much of Ukip opposition to the EU was not so much "British Patriotism"  as a hatred of the EU's stance on human and  workers rights.

They would happily become a client state of Trumps America removing any rights for workers , claiming it hampered Free Trade .

We would not even have the same rights as even the small state of Rhode Island  but would  surrender any sovereignty to the US in order to prove that Brexit means we have a friendly trading partner  outside the EU.

Prehaps Mr Farage  and his fellow Brexiters new slogan ,

Should be 
"We got our country back, now let's hand into the US , lock, stock and barrel".
