Trump on Brexit: ‘I don’t think anybody should listen to me because I haven’t really focused on it’
Donald Trump can talk about his golf courses, but he can’t discuss the biggest international event of the year.
Asked about the “seismic impact” on the global economy and if he would “steal back” his investments from Scotland, Trump noted that he had “big investments in Europe.”
“As you know I own Doonbeg in Ireland, a phenomenal hotel. One of the most beautiful hotels. One of the most highly rated hotels in all of Europe and it’s got a golf course on this large almost 500-acre parcel of land, on the Atlantic Ocean, and does great. I own Turnberry. I own Aberdeen,” he said, before saying he was looking forward to returning to the campaign trail.
Trump brought up his “great golf course” in Aberdeen again when asked if Scotland, which voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU, should become independent from the UK. He said that decision should be left up to the people of Scotland.
As recently as Wednesday, Trump said he didn’t think his opinion on the referendum mattered since he didn’t know much about the issues involved.
“I don’t think anybody should listen to me because I haven’t really focused on it very much,” Trump told Fox News.
