Presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, has said the UK voting to leave the European Union is a “great thing”.
Speaking as he arrived at his Trump Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire the tycoon gave a thumbs-up as he climbed out of a helicopter emblazoned with his name.
He said: “I think it’s a great thing that’s happened. It’s an amazing vote, very historic.
“People are angry all over the world. They’re angry over borders, they’re angry over people coming into the country and taking over and nobody even knows who they are.
“They’re angry about many, many things in the UK, the US and many other places. This will not be the last.”
Asked what he thought about the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron following the vote, Mr Trump said: “Well, that’s too bad.”
Mr Trump said divisions within the UK “will heal” after the EU referendum result, adding: “I said this was going to happen and I think it is a great thing.
“I think we’re doing very well in the United States also, and it is essentially the same thing that is happening in the United States.
