Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is very happy about the Brexit decision.

In his first public remarks since Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, Murdoch called the decision “wonderful.” Murdoch owns several news organizations in the U.K., including The Sun, The Times and Sky News.

Murdoch spoke at a Times CEO summit on Tuesday where Ed Conway, editor of Sky News and a columnist at The Times, tweeted some of his boss’ remarks.

“I think it’s wonderful,” Murdoch said of the vote to leave. “We’ve got to decide in this country who we are. We made a momentous decision last Thurs… It’s a bit like a prison break.”

The mogul also said, “It’s time for change. I just hope the right people give the right leadership.”

Murdoch, who recently dined with Donald Trump, even chimed in on Hillary Clinton.

“If Hillary gets elected what she’s promised to do with the [New York] banks is going to make London boom,” he said according to a Conway tweet.
