In Scotland, Trump Hails Britain Leaving The EU

In case you missed it, Brits voted to leave the European Union, what was called BrExit, by a margin of 51.9% to 48.1%. The UK Telegraph has an interesting breakdown of the vote by UK nation and area.

Now, many wondered why Donald Trump would take a few days in the middle of a campaign to head over to Scotland to re-open his golf course. Perhaps he was counting on using the vote, especially if Leave won, as a means to push his campaign

(Reuters) U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump thrust himself into the heart of Britain’s internal struggle on Friday, saying Britons had retaken control of their country by voting to leave the European Union.

In Scotland to reopen a golf resort, the wealthy New York businessman stopped to take questions from reporters after arriving in his signature helicopter at Turnberry near his clubhouse resort, a Scottish flag blowing in the wind.

Asked about Thursday’s down-to-the-wire British vote, Trump said: “They took back control of their country. It’s a great thing.” He said people all over the world were angry, adding: “They’re angry over borders, they’re angry over people coming into the country and taking over.”

In a written statement Trump, 70, said Americans would have a chance “to re-declare their independence” and “reject today’s rule by the global elite” when they vote on Nov. 8 for a U.S. president to succeed President Barack Obama, a Democrat who had urged Britons to stay in the EU.

Right now, Trump is also taking more questions, which I’m watching live. He’s actually doing a good job, giving clear, concise answers before moving on to other questions, and he’s taking quite a few. He even managed, thanks to a question, to take a jab at Obama over Obama stating that BrExit could move the U.K. to the back of the queue on US trade deals. Trump made sure to say this would not happen with his administration.

He’s making some great points on the unfettered and barely controlled immigration from other countries, especially those with Islamist background, causing major issues within the host countries.

Many in the media are rather shocked that Trump would use the occasion to pimp his golf course and hotel interests. He was just asked if it was appropriate for him to be in Scotland. He said “yeah, because I support my children” and moved on.

Meanwhile, The NY Times’ Jim Yardley makes a good point

From Brussels to Berlin to Washington, leaders of the Western democratic world awoke Friday morning to a blunt, once-unthinkable rebuke delivered by the flinty citizens of a small island nation in the North Atlantic. Populist anger against the established political order had finally boiled over. (snip)

Even as the European Union began to grapple with a new and potentially destabilizing period of political uncertainty, the British vote also will inevitably be seized upon as further evidence of deepening public unease with the global economic order. Globalization and economic liberalization have produced winners and losers — and the big “Leave” vote in economically stagnant regions of Britain suggests that many of those who have lost out are fed up.

Time and again, the European Union has navigated political crises during the past decade with a whack-a-mole response that has maintained the status quo and the bloc’s lumbering forward momentum toward greater integration — without directly confronting the roiling public discontent beneath the surface.

There are now moves in France and Holland to hold referendum’s like Britain’s. Perhaps people are tired of having everything dictated to them by elected and un-elected elites.

    Barack Obama: Let me say as your friend that the EU makes Britain even greater.

    Barry on the wrong side of history as usual.

  2. JGlanton says:

    LOL, I turn on CBS news this morning and the say “the US clearly wanted Britain to stay”.

    No, Barry and the globalists did.

    Fortunately we have Obama to keep our dollar strong
    Those imaginary fears of inflation never materialized
    Money is now fleeing Britain and coming to the USA
    Treasury bills are paying under 0.25% interest which is really just like saying if you invest in us we will only just give you your money back
    But people are still happy just to be able to buy dollars, unlike pounds

  4. Liam Thomas says:


    You are so clueless when it comes to finances. Why do you find an interest rate of .25 percent on bonds appealing to foreign investors?

    Why do you suppose we have such low inflation?

    Why are people continuing to funnel money into the USA and not the EURO…..Why would England vote to leave the EU>?

    Why would Obama and the Left want England to stay in the Socialist EU?

    These are some questions I would like to see you answer….Now go google all my questions and come up with some sage wisdom as if you actually had those thoughts swirling around in your own head for the last 7 plus year.

  5. Liam Thomas says:

    ***** Trump was citing immigration as part of the reason why Englanders voted to leave the EU.******

    So I thought let me follow my own advise and do a little googling.

    There is now roughly almost 5 million muslims in England and more then half of those are immigrants from other then the EU.

    They are inundating London to the point that Parts of London are now NO GO zones for anyone other then Muslims and they have been forced to allow Sharia law within their own country.

    Sharia law goes against the grain of everything Englanders stand for and the justice department is looking into barbaric treatment of women and children with “SOME CONCERN.”

    The mayor of London was a staunch proponent of leaving the EU and has cited the EU’s policy on immigration as one of the main reasons he is in favor of Exiting the EU.

    Some citation:


    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Dutch anti-immigration leader Geert Wilders called on Friday for a referendum on the Netherlands’ membership in the European Union after Britain voted to leave the 28-member blo

    Stockholm Programme, a roadmap for developing the EU’s migration policy from 2009 to 2014. It aims to build a Europe of “responsibility, solidarity and partnership in migration and asylum” with a “dynamic and comprehensive immigration policy”.

    European officials agreed Monday to rethink their policy on migrants from Africa and the Middle East. smugglers who operate from Libya often load migrants onto small boats with insufficient fuel and then call for help. Mare Nostrum picked up more than 163,000 refugees in 2014, according to the UNHCR, the United Nations agency for refugees.

    Greece, Hungary, Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands and FRANCE are among the current group of Nations actively pursuing withdrawing from the EU. Source the Washington Post.

    The birth rates along with the incessant influx of EU mandated Muslims was going to see the numbers in England double in 10 years with the majority of Muslims in the country as of this writing were under 10 years old. Once they reach 20 they will of course begin to start cranking out children of their own.

    The law of doubling has not only England but many countries within the EU that have small populations such as Norway, Denmark, Portugal, Ireland etc…..terrified that simply allowing Muslims to multiply like rats…..yeah I know…not very politically correct but this is what EU is facing.

    This is the single greatest factor facing the EU right now because Socialism/communism does not encourage birth rates that will sustain and grow the indigenous population. Hence Europe Turned to unbridled Immigration and are now rueing the day they did so.

  6. Liam Thomas says:

    So John to answer one of my questions for you. Unbridled Immigration as Obama and Hillary Clinton demand of the USA is one of the main reasons the EU is crumbling now….This is a direct slap in the FACE of Obama and Clinton and their own policy on Immigration.

    Not that it will matter. The US will continue to allow millions of immigrants into this nation as long as they can because they are sure fire democratic votes.

    And of course we know every savage from Libya is deadly afraid of AGW, CO2 and not having Abortion on Demand. We know they are petrified at how the GOP treats women.

    Its not that the left cares one damn bit about these people….they are votes….voters who will keep Republicans out of office and get democrats into office to ensure that their AGW and CO2 and Abortion and Gay laws are passed.

  7. JGlanton says:

    LOL, now that the vote is done, Barry is saying that it won’t change the US/Britain relationship. Flip flopping on his earlier threat to the contrary. What a frikken Clinton. Shut up and play golf, lightweight.

  8. JGlanton says:

    Barry was on the side of those who regulated banana curvature. Go play some golf, chump.
