Presidential hopeful Donald Trump said it is a “great thing” that the people of the UK have “taken back their country” in voting to leave the EU, as he touched down at his golf resort in Scotland, Simon Johnson writes.
The billionaire arrived in his “Trump” emblazoned helicopter at the Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire to officially open the revamped resort he bought in 2014, just an hour after Prime Minister David Cameron said he intended to stand down in October.
He gave a thumbs-up as he left his helicopter and shook hands with workers on his way to the hotel before making the comments about the EU referendum result.
