MAYBOLE, Scotland (AP) — At the heart of the campaign that led Britain to vote to leave the European Union was a desire to regain independence lost amid a globalized world. It's the same kind of feeling that Donald Trump rode to become the presumptive Republican nominee in the U.S., where he campaigns to put "America first" and "make America great again."
"I love to see people take their country back. And that's really what's happening in the United States," Trump told reporters this weekend during a visit to his golf resort in western Scotland.
The anxiety that drove the stunning "Brexit" decision has been brewing for at least a decade in the United Kingdom, as waves of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe arrived as the global economy plunged into recession.
In the years since, right-leaning leaders have stoked populist concerns about their impact on wages, as well as fears about the loss of ethnic identity, which runs deep in parts of largely white rural England and Wales.
"There's a real feeling things have changed and they've changed too fast," said Muriel MacGregor, filling up her car at a BP station on her way to work as a clerk at a hotel in Aberdeen, Scotland. MacGregor, 52, said that, unlike many of her friends, she proudly voted for "leave." '
'This isn't the country I remember from growing up. I don't know exactly what happens next. I don't think anybody does. But I really feel like we needed something different, because this isn't working," she said.Trump has his finger on the pulse.
The media is actively trying to spin Trump's trip to Scotland as a disaster. But, I'm quite sure the people of Europe hear Trump's message and understand the fact that it's the same as theirs.
"Hey Globalists, get the fuck out of our faces. Your time is through."
COMMENT FROM ANONYMOUS:
The problem is it will not be that easy. This NWO deceit has been planned and implemented for decades while we were pleasantly unaware, busy in our daily lives. Now that people here and in Europe are getting the idea of what's going on, it will be ugly, because the "masters" will refuse to go back into the bottle. That's why here in the US all federal agencies are armed to the teeth to repress civilians, there are towers of plastic coffins and barbed wired camps, all courtesy of FEMA. We were asking what all the weapons, camps, coffins, ammunition, etc. were for? Now we know. They always knew ... I don't think July through January will be a very peaceful period...
