Edinburgh, June 24 (IANS) Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday praised the British people, saying they “took back control of their country” by voting to leave the European Union. The property tycoon has in recent months been vocal in his support of a Brexit vote.
Trump, who is in Scotland to open a golf course, said Britons “took back control of their country” by voting to quit the EU. He had earlier said he would be personally inclined to leave the EU in the run-up to the British referendum.
“People are angry, all over the world, they’re angry,” Trump wrote on his Facebook. “They’re angry over borders, they’re angry over people coming into the country and taking over. Nobody even knows who they are. They’re angry about many, many things.”
Last week, in an interview with the Sunday Times, Trump once again aired his opinion that Britain would be better off outside the EU.
“I would personally be more inclined to leave, for a lot of reasons like having a lot less bureaucracy,” he told the publication. “But I am not a British citizen. This is just my opinion.”
