Donald Trump, in Scotland, Praised UK’s Leave Vote in a Pro-Remain Scotland

Interesting decision [1] to praise the decisive Leave vote in a place where they voted to Remain in the European Union:

Trump compared the U.K. referendum vote, “dubbed Brexit [2],” to America’s presidential election. “People really see a big parallel,” he noted today at a news conference at his Turnberry golf course.

“What I like is that I love to see people take their country back. And that’s really what’s happening in the United States,” Trump said.

Across the U.K., 52 percent voted to leave the 28-member bloc, while 48.1 percent voted to stay. But there was a notably different result in Scotland, where 62 percent voted to stay and 38 percent to leave.
