Donald Trump, “The British are angry over borders and many other things.”
The Brexit ‘leave’ victory was humiliating loss for US President Barack Hussein Obama.
Some British polls showed that voter sentiment moved decidedly in favor of Brexit after Mr. Obama traveled to Britain and urged a “No Exit” vote.
British voters delivered a sharp rebuke to Mr. Obama Thursday opting to leave the EU by a 51.9 to 48% margin.
So strong was the backlash to Mr. Obama’s blatant attempt to influence the Brexit vote that a reasonable case might be made that he contributed to the outcome.
Mr. Obama’s threatening remarks Vs Britain over Brexit ignited firestorm of resentment.
Mr. Obama said, Britain should not expect a new trade deal with the US, that it would be “in the back of the queue, suggesting that a new trade deal with America’s closest ally could be 5 years from now, 10 years from now before we were able to actually get something done.
There are those that believe that Mr.Obama’s comments had, in fact, been written for him at 10 Downing Street.
A newspaper editorial was attacked Mr. Obama’s anti-Brexit interference, saying he had shown “contempt for voters.”
“The tone was patronizing, the language menacing – and the message not only hypocritical but, frankly, insulting,” it added. “… He has no business to come here and preach that submission to Brussels is good for the people of the UK.” I listened to the speech it was exactly as described by the editorial
Friday, there has been a media “blackout” in the US of Mr. Obama’s role in Brexit, but Donald Trump did point the finger at Mr. Obama’s meddling.
“I think it’s something he should not 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,” Donald Trump said.
The biggest loser in the Brexit vote is Mr. Obama, who invested his personal prestige and global popularity in the referendum, and lost.
Donald Trump said about the British Friday morning, “They are angry over borders, they are angry over people coming into the country and taking over, nobody even knows who they are. They’re angry about many, many things.”
Perhaps one of those things is Barack Hussein Obama.
Trumpeting for Trump
