MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Former leader of UK Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage said Saturday that he was in the United Kingdom, refuting earlier media reports that he left for the United States to coach Republican Party nominee Donald Trump ahead of the next round of presidential debates.
"Contrary to press reports, I am in the United Kingdom," Farage wrote on his official Twitter account.

Earlier in the day, The Guardian got in touch with a UKIP spokesperson who also rejected media reports claiming that Farage had already left for the United States to help Trump in the wake of the first debates, which some allege, he lost.
The US polling firm also noted that voters in all five states widely perceived Clinton to be the winner of the first presidential debate on Monday night.
The next Clinton-Trump debate is scheduled for October 9.
