Always nice to have the man responsible for Brexit stand with you!

'Many in the British political and media establishment completely failed to understand that reasonable people might vote for Brexit'

“BEYOND BREXIT!” “Brexit plus!” “Brexit times ten!” Throughout his presidential run Donald Trump has claimed the mantle of the campaign that mobilized popular discontent to defy the odds and take the UK out of the European Union in June’s referendum.
