A leader of the far-Right British group ‘endorsed’ by Donald Trump gleefully boasted yesterday that she now has a ‘special relationship’ with the US President.
Jayda Fransen achieved international notoriety last week when Mr Trump shared her inflammatory anti-Muslim videos with his 44 million followers.
But it sparked a war of words between the President and Theresa May and led to plans for a ‘working visit’ to the UK next month to be 'kicked into the long grass'.
Fransen, 31, deputy leader of Britain First, said: ‘I think the special relationship may have broken down between May and Trump.’ Asked if she – not the Prime Minister – now enjoys a special relationship with the President, she beamed: ‘Exactly.’
Fransen, who has claimed that Trump’s re-tweeting of her videos amounts to an endorsement of Britain First by the US President, was speaking to an undercover Mail on Sunday reporter who infiltrated the extremist organisation’s secret annual conference yesterday.
One delegate, Paul Rimmer, who is due to stand as a Britain First candidate in local elections next year, told the meeting that Trump’s re-tweeting of Ms Fransen’s videos was ‘absolutely mind-blowing’.
He said the President had ‘found an ally’ in Fransen, adding: ‘You couldn’t get a Hollywood director to put that together. You couldn’t get a novelist to write that.’

He added: ‘We have got the President of the United States on our side. What an ally that is.’
In a rant-filled speech, he said Muslims ‘have come here to take what is ours… they have come here to take over our cities, city by city, town by town’.
Before Mr Trump re-tweeted Fransen’s videos, Britain First was a marginal group with about 800 members. But his intervention catapulted the extremists into the public spotlight and they boasted of a massive injection of support.
However, only 70 ‘patriots’ answered the call to attend the AGM at the Wyboston Lakes leisure centre complex in Little Barford, Bedfordshire, yesterday.
In addition to praising Mr Trump, delegates applauded as Mrs May was accused of encouraging the Islamic takeover of the UK. One speaker denounced Islam as an ‘evil’ religion.

Strong support for banning Trump’s state visit to Britain planned for 2018 emerged in a new Survation poll for The Mail on Sunday. A total of 50 per cent said the state visit should be called off, with 37 per cent in favour of it going ahead.
The Prime Minister was judged to have made a mistake by offering the state visit at the beginning of Trump’s presidency by an almost identical margin.
Britain First had planned to hold its conference in Coventry but there were widespread protests when the news leaked.
The group’s Facebook page later stated that the location had changed to Bedfordshire due to police bail conditions faced by its leader Paul Golding and his ex-partner Fransen, who both face trial for religiously aggravated harassment. Britain First said in an email to the MoS that the Press was ‘officially banned’ from the event.
But a reporter was able to gain access after filling in an application form online and paying £5. In a series of cloak and dagger instructions, he was told to rendezvous with other delegates at a remote Shell petrol station five miles from Cambridge at 2pm yesterday.

They were met by a portly Britain First official called Gary standing furtively outside who gave the reporter a postcode which turned out to be for the Wyboston Lakes complex around ten miles away. He told him to ask for the Oakley suite. Once there, the reporter was greeted by Golding, who shook his hand.
The room was decorated with placards bearing pictures of Lord Nelson and Winston Churchill and emblazoned with slogans such as ‘Taking Our Country Back’.
Delegates had to listen to recordings of military marching music while the start of the conference was delayed because some supporters got lost on the way. Golding then opened the conference by issuing a ‘word of warning’.
‘If there are undercover journalists in this room, we will find you,’ he said. ‘You will get bounced off the walls and every door imaginable before you are kicked out of the building.’
One member of the audience then asked: ‘Who’s this Donald Trump guy?’
Fransen snapped back: ‘He’s just a mate of mine.’
