Trump Makes Promise to the British After They ‘Declared Their Independence’

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday applauded Britain’s vote to leave the European Union and vowed to work closely with the United Kingdom in the future.

“The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples,” Trump said in a statement posted on Facebook. “They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy.”

“A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration,” Trump’s statement said.

“Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people. I hope America is watching, it will soon be time to believe in America again,” Trump’s statement said.

On Twitter, Trump issued three tweets about the vote.

Trump, who was in Scotland Friday for the reopening of his Turnberry golf resort, called Britain’s vote to leave the European Union “a great thing.” He added, “People are angry, all over the world, they’re angry. 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.”
