The main similarity is between Trump’s lies and the UKIP’s lies. Except where the latter were successful in conning people, the former was not.
The other similarity is in their followers, who are susceptible to beliefs, not facts, about a nation, about an ideology, about a project, about some kind of unattainable promised land which is there for the taking if only you believe hard enough.
You only have to look on here, or on those links to radio shows where leavers repeatedly fail to come up with anything meaningful or tangible which justifies the economic devastation to businesses, or the social divisions which Brexit has caused.
