Donald Trump on Brexit: ‘That’s Really What’s Happening in the US’

”I think there are great similarities between happened here and my campaign,“ he says in Scotland

Donald Trump praised Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, and thinks his campaign is inspiring a similar movement in the United States.

“I love to see people take their country back,” the presumptive GOP nominee said Friday during a ceremony to mark the reopening of a golf resort he owns in Scotland. “And that’s really what’s happening in the United States.”

Some of the issues important to the group who supported the vote for Britain to leave the European Union will sound familiar to American voters. Skepticism of immigration, border concerns and skepticism of the value of multinational organizations are among the key concerns for both Trump and British citizens.

“I think there are great similarities between happened here and my campaign,” Trump said. “People want to see borders. They don’t necessarily want people pouring into their country that they don’t know who they are and where they come from.”

New York Times reporter Ashley Parker tweeted that she “flew all the way to Scotland for, basically, a Donald Trump golf course ribbon cutting.”

The trip is believed to be Trump’s first international travel since becoming the presumptive GOP nominee. Earlier this week, Trump announced his support of the “Leave” movement despite admitting he hadn’t closely followed the Brexit situation.

Trump also suggested the President Barack Obama was partially responsible for the outcome.

“If he had said no to it, I think the vote might have been different. He’s constantly dictating what the world should do. The world doesn’t listen to him.” Trump said.
