Britain ‘Better off’ leaving European Union: Donald Trump

Britain better off leaving European Union so that it could better control migration, Donald Trump said. Migration is both at the heart of Mr Trump’s presidential bid and an increasingly prominent part of the Leave Campaign ahead of the UK’s June 23 in/out referendum on EU membership.

Trump, who triumphed in the vital Indiana primary this week, asserted that countries such as Germany and even parts of Sweden were going through hell right now, an apparent reference to the influx of hundreds of thousands of migrants from Syria and elsewhere.

‘’I think the migration has been a horrible thing for Europe’’. A lot of that was pushed by the EU. I would say that they are better off without it personally, but I’m not making that as a recommendation it just my feeling’’.

‘’I know Great Britain very well, I have a lot of investments there.’’ Britain better off leaving EU was to reflect the good relation with Britain and US.

UK, Mr Cameron Prime Minister

The UK prime minister had previously denounced Mr Trump for his ‘’stupid, divisive and wrong’’ suggestion last December that the US should ban Muslims from entering the country.

‘’ Knowing the grueling nature of primaries, what you have to go through to go on and represent your party in a general election, anyone who makes it through that deserves our respect’’. Mr Cameron said replying to Financial Times.

He added, ‘’ what I said about Muslims, I wouldn’t change that view. I’m very clear that the policy idea that was put forward was wrong, it is wrong, and it will remain wrong.’’

The relationship will be further tested if Mr Trump decides to put Britain on a list of countries he intends to visit on a proposed tour of Europe and the Middle East. Invitation by the British government would be seen as tremendous show of unity and wonderful spectacle.

Mr Cameron,’’ I think if he came to visit our country he’d unite us all against him’’.
