Trump says Brexit is a 'great thing'


Donald Trump is pleased as pie that that the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.

Speaking at his Turnberry golf course in Scotland a day after the so-called Brexit vote, he said "they took back their country, it's a great thing."

The GOP presidential candidate touched down just an hour before U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron said he would step down. Trump's two-day visit included the re-opening ceremony of the refurbished luxury golf resort on Scotland's western coast where he addressed the historic vote.

The Donald drew parallels between Europe's immigration and economic problems and issues in the U.S. He said "people are angry all over the world," and said that worries about "the borders" fueled the UK's vote.

Trump also noted Brexit would work out pretty good for him too.

"When the pound goes down, more people are coming to Turnberry, frankly," Trump added during an afternoon press conference. "For traveling and for other things, I think it very well could turn out to be a positive."
