The GB News presenter said Mr Biden is “utterly discredited” following the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. Mr Farage added that his presidency will not recover from the fiasco, which has seen him widely criticised in the US and by allies as the Taliban have returned to power.

The former Brexit Party leader claimed support from Mr Biden’s Democratic Party is “cracking at the seams”.

Mr Farage also took aim at US vice-president Kamala Harris, who he said has been “notable by her complete absence”.

Asked whether Mr Biden’s presidency can recover, the GB News presenter told Express.co.uk: “No it won’t.

“I think things will get worse not better.

“I think the level of support for his actions within his own party is cracking at the seams.

“Kamala Harris has been notable by her complete absence from the whole debate.

“I think Biden is utterly discredited now.”

Mr Farage, a friend of former US President Donald Trump, added that the special relationship between the UK and the US is over for now.

The GB News presenter claimed Mr Biden has “no interest” in a post-Brexit trade deal and that he has “never liked” Britain.

He said: “I think for the moment the special relationship is off.

“Whether it’s travel, where we’re allowing Americans in and there’s no reciprocity.

“Whether it’s trade, where clearly Biden has no interest in a trade deal.

“Whether it’s the Northern Ireland Protocol, which clearly has not worked out at all well and yet Biden sticks to the EU line.

“And not to even consult your closest ally before a unilateral troop withdrawal was the icing on the cake.

“So this president has never liked the UK, I’ve said that from the very beginning.”

Mr Biden has defended the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan – a move followed by allies including the UK.

Last year, Mr Trump’s administration and the Taliban agreed on a withdrawal date for all Nato forces.

The pledge to pull out troops in what is known as the Doha agreement was upheld by Mr Biden, who said soldiers would be gone before the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
