Donald Trump’s first tweet about Brexit got shut down immediately
And, just when you thought this day couldn’t get any more dramatic, Donald Trump has shown up in Scotland. Brilliant.
Naturally, Trump has already weighed in with his thoughts on Brexit, and it’s safe to say that it didn’t go down well. Like, at all.
Donald J. Trump
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!
Trump’s excitement, however, was a little misjudged as Scotland actually voted for the UK to remain in the EU.
Singer Lily Allen — and sister of Game of Thrones actor Alfie Allen — quickly swooped in to check Trump’s erroneous statement. And, it was pretty hilarious.
@realDonaldTrump Scotland voted IN you moron
It didn’t end there, though. A few others also stepped in to set the record straight.
@realdonaldtrump Scotland voted Remain, you weapons-grade plum.
@realDonaldTrump You are in Scotland. We voted #Remain. #EUref
@realDonaldTrump All 32 voting areas in Scotland voted to stay in the E.U.
How are they “going wild over the vote”? #Brexit #BrexitVote
Well, this is awkward.
Trump’s much criticized twitter above seems to have been interpreted by his critics as
as an example of his ignorance.
Before this the Hollywood Reporter grilled him on his position on BREXIT, and he seemed to be only mildly interested … with a slight nod toward the leave side.
*The bigger “American influence” stories per BREXIT have been Obama’s strident advocacy for the EU side (punctuated with threats), and Hillary Clinton’s active advocacy for the same side before the election during the campaign period.
Trump’s comments were initially interviewed out of him … and not IMO any kind of an upbraiding of the UKs “Stay” voters. *
Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. without going into the demographics of the Scottish vote … did Trump see SOME people at his golf course hotel “going wild” over the vote? Celebrators? Loud critics? :shrug: They took their country back,Accurate since Brexit won … and Scotland is still part of the UK (after a recent vote for Scotland to leave the UK failed) so the THEY was the winning side throughout the “country”. just like we will take America back. there are aspects of immigration, national sovereignty, financial independence and globalism that match the Trump campaign’s stated philosophies.No games! As short a sentence as this is … I have no idea what Trump means here. An “out” line is all I can discern.
