The statue of Britain’s war-time hero was taken out of the White House office by Barack Obama in favour of a sculpture of Martin Luther King in 2009.
The move by Obama has fractured relations between the US and Britain, with Boris Johnson arguing the move was a “snub to Britain” and suggested it was due to the 55-year-old’s “ancestral dislike” of the UK.
However the President-elect – whose mother was Scottish – is keen to usher in a new period of emboldened relations between the US and the UK and formally announced the sculpture of the iconic World War Two hero would be returned to the Oval Office.
When asked by the New York Times if he was going to bring back the bust of Britain’s esteemed Tory hero, Trump replied “I am, indeed, I am”.
After removing the statue of Churchill, Obama said he had a second one located in his private residence in the White House.
The Democrat said: “I see it every day, including on weekends, when I’m going into that office to watch a basketball game.
“The primary image I see is a bust of Winston Churchill. It’s there voluntarily, because I can do anything on the second floor. I love Winston Churchill.”
The main bust was given to George W Bush as a gift by former Prime Minister Tony Blair and was put on display during his two Presidential terms between 2001 to 2009.
Mr Trump first mooted at the possibility of returning the sculpture back into the Oval Office in November – news which was widely welcomed by Nigel Farage.
The former Ukip leader has previously claimed Trump will be an “Anglophile President” who will bump Britain to the front of the queue when signing lucrative trade deals.
During the build-up to the EU referendum, the incumbent President took to the stage with David Cameron to argue that Britain would be forced to the “back of the queue” if it voted to leave the clutches of the bureaucratic Brussels bloc.
Mr Farage claimed that Obama’s threats had backfired and that the newly-elected Republican business tycoon would rekindle the “special relationship” between Britain and the US.
Mr Farage said: “And it’s not just President-elect Trump, but his whole team which are Anglophiles.
“They like our country. They recognise what we’ve done together in the past. They’re coming into this with a positive view. We need to seize the day.”
