After British citizens voted yesterday to remove Britain from the European Union, U.S Republican Presidential candidate endorsed the exit, calling it a great thing and that the British people ‘took back control of their country’.
The billionaire businessman arrived at his Scottish golf course, Trump Turnberry, in a private chopper during the reopening of the refurbished Open venue golf resort.
Crowds greeted him wearing ‘Make Turnberry Great Again’ hats, as he cut the ribbon on the golf course’s £200 million refurbishment. He said there were parallels with the US and elsewhere. “People do not necessarily want people pouring over their borders,” he said.
“The UK will be stronger for it. They have taken their independence back. They can block anyone coming in they do not think is appropriate.”
“We will embrace it,”
“The UK had taken back control. It is a great thing.”
Trump described the referendum result as a historic vote and predicted many such uprisings around the world. “It will not be the last. There is lots of anger,” he said.
