HomeNEWSNATIONALBrexitBRISTOL: Donald Trump says it’s time to go May 6, 2016 Brexit US Presidental hopeful Donald Trump has encouraged the UK to leave the EU. The Republicans comments come after President Barack Obama of opposition Democrats said the UK would be better off remaining in the EU. Trump has interests within the UK as he owns a number of business’ as well as owning two Scottish golf courses, Turnberry and the Trump international Golf Links. The former host of the USA version of The Apprentice told Fox News “I think the migration has been a horrible thing for Europe, a lot of that was pushed by the EU” Trump has previously made his policy on immigration very much a lead in his campaign. He has made a number of controversial comments about Muslims and Mexicans. Though it isn’t only in recent times he has had these controversial opinions as the tweet below from 2013 shows. Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 5 June 2013 Trump did however emphasise the point that he didn’t want to be seen as telling the UK what to do as he added “I want them to make their own decision” Could this be a sign that the republicans if voted in would still be happy to do trade with the UK after Obama saying that we would go to the back of the queue for trade deals if we voted to leave. by Joshua Mugridge Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window) Related Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
