Trump Issues Statement On Brexit: "They Took Their Country Back, We Will Take America Back"
After last night's historic referendum which saw the UK vote to leave the European Union, US Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has both tweeted...
Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!

... and released a statement on the event.
Issued moments ago on Trump's Facebook page, Trump saw an opportunity to piggyback on the UK's reformist momentum, saying its people have "Declared their independence from the European Union, and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy." The statement goes on to say that a Trump administration would pledge to strengthen ties with Britain, and that come November, the American people would have the chance to re-declare their independence as well, while voting to reject today's rule by global elites.
