To the world’s surprise, Britain voted to leave the European Union last night. Aside from Switzerland, they were one of two countries in the EU who retained their currency (the Pound and Franc, respectively), perhaps indicating that they were initially worried that membership in the EU may not be all it was hyped up to be.
With the UK paying far more into the EU than they received, and being subject to the whims of bureaucrats across the sea, it’s no surprise they wanted out.
It’s foreign affairs, but Donald Trump has used it to launch a new set of attacks against Obama, who opposed the “Brexit” campaign. The Gateway Pundit reports:
Donald Trump traveled to Scotland Friday for the reopening of the refurbished Trump Turnberry golf resort.
Trump praised the Brexit vote saying it is a “great thing” that the people of the UK have “taken back their country” in voting to leave the EU.

Donald Trump also slammed Obama for getting involved in the campaign.
“He was embarrassed by the Supreme Court decision yesterday which was a real rebuke. And he was very embarrassed by, he got involved, I don’t know if that was because of a friendship with David Cameron. It could have been. I can understand friendship and I can understand why he did it. I think it’s something he shouldn’t have done. It’s not his country. It’s not his part of the world. And I actually think that his recommendation perhaps caused it to fail.“
Hopefully he causes Hillary Clinton’s campaign to fail next.
