Donald Trump took a few days off from his presidential campaign to take care of some business. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee arrived in Scotland as the historic vote was announced severing Great Britain from the European Union.

Trump said that by so doing, “they took their country back, just like we will take America back.”

He took to Twitter to comment further:

Trump’s initial comment drew a flurry of criticism because he failed to clarify that it was the British vote when he was in Scotland.

A majority of Scotland (not “all”) did vote to remain in the EU, but as DailyMail reported, there is strong and very vocal contingent that wants out, and that fact was not lost on Trump.

Many fear Trump will benefit from the newly found British independence and took to Twitter to voice their concern:

But not so fast. There were plenty of folks celebrating Brexit and what they see as a slap-in-the-face to global governance, and they too took to Twitter… this time to celebrate.

And the Daily Mail reported that that Great Britain’s vote for independence from the EU was a harbinger of a Trump victory on November 8.

Th Mail reported:

In an op-ed for the LA Times, London School of Economics fellow Brian Klaas and Marcel Dirsus, a lecturer at the University of Kiel in Germany, compare Brexit voters to “Trump supporters sporting ‘Make America Great Again’ hats” who “believe they have lost too much for too long.”

“Their complaint is understandable,” they write. “But turning inward will only make their problems worse and the world more dangerous.”

 

Stated differently, Trump placed his bet on Great Britain leaving the European Union and won big-time.

Both President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton placed their bets on the Brits remaining within the bloc and rolled the dice — they came up snake eyes.
