"We want some real action. We don't just want speeches given outside number 10 Downing Street. We want genuine action. And, if there's not action, the calls for internment will grow."

However, Farage went on to say, "I'm not sure that is the right approach because the big danger with that is we might alienate decent, fair-minded Muslims in Britain."

After the segment, "FOX & Friends" co-host Clayton Morris said on-air that the idea of internment camps "reprehensible."

Morris said, "...on behalf of the network, I think all of us here find that idea reprehensible here at Fox News Channel."

The Guardian reports Farage is considered a "person of interest" in the FBI's investigation into Russian tampering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

He has called those accusations "preposterous."
