Donald Trump needed but three words to describe why a state such as Texas would not secede from the union like Great Britain did from the European Union.

“Texas loves me,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said, predicting the outcome of the general election in the process.

The focus was on last week’s vote on Britain’s exit from the EU, popularly termed “Brexit, during an interview with British media giant Rupert Murdoch Saturday.

Reflecting on tremors being felt in the United States because of Britain’s decision, Trump said that “This shouldn’t even affect Americans if done properly.”

What he felt would have lasting effect is the Obama administration’s “doubling” of the national debt.

“We’re now going to be very soon at 21 trillion in debt. That’s the big problem the U.S. has,” he said. “We have to do something about it quickly.”

He was asked whether this — and other problems left by Obama — might prompt states to leave the U.S. like Britain had from the European Union.

“Texas will never do that because Texas loves me,” he said.
