Trump visits UK, says Brexit ‘a great thing’

LONDON: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump terms Brexit a “great thing” and said it is go that the people of the UK have “taken back their country” in voting to leave the EU, as he touched down at his golf resort in Scotland.

Billionaire Trump arrived Scotland to on his helicopter making a  thumb-up sign for his supporters. He landed at the Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire to officially open the revamped resort he bought in 2014, just an hour after Prime Minister David Cameron said he intended to stand down in October.

Trump expressed utter pleasure over EU -Leave results and said Brexit is like his own campaign.

He said: “I think it’s a great thing that happened, an amazing vote, very historic. We’re very happy.”

Asked why people voted for Brexit, he said: “People are angry. All over the world they’re angry.”

Asked if he took heart from the result for his own campaign, Mr Trump said: “We’re doing very well in the United States and essentially the same thing is happening in the United States.

“They are angry over borders, they are angry over people coming into the country and taking over and nobody even noticing. They are angry about many, many things.”

In terms of what people were specifically to specify where people were angry, he said: “The UK, the US, many other places. It will not be the last.”

In a series of tweets, Trump revealed how he sees Brexit and US-UK relations in future.
