Donald Trump Embarrasses America While Touting His Business As World Markets Drown
There is no way to make up the crazy that is Donald Trump.
The press conference that Trump held in Scotland while most of us were sleeping is a stunner, to be sure.
Facts never seem to get in the way of the orange-skinned man so it should not surprise anyone that Trump praised the British vote to leave the European Union in Scotland–a place that overwhelming voted to remain in the European Union.
To make matters more bizarre he then proudly said the falling British pound would be good for business–his business! He openly and brazenly used the press conference to tout the opening of his new golf course in Scotland.
With racism front and center he praised the exit of Britain from the EU and referred to Brexit backers’ opposition to immigration by saying “people who you don’t want … you are not going to have to take.”
The unseemliness was a continuing theme of his conference as he made a great deal of effort to stress that Britain’s declining currency was good for business, including at his new golf course.
“If the pound goes down, they’re going to do more business.”
Before he answered reporters’ questions Trump made a huge production about the opening of his new golf course in Turnberry, Scotland. It was the most embarrassing spectacle that has been made by an American on foreign soil in a long time. (It is no wonder we are often scorned abroad.) This was all happening as Trump advertised for his own businesses and bottom line on a day like today when global markets are reeling and much of Britain and the whole continent is in economic shock.
It was simply obscene.
