Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is headed overseas June 24 to attend the reopening of the newly renovated Trump Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire, Scotland.
Trump’s visit is set to take place just 24 hours after British voters are expected to decide whether the country should leave the European Union.
The complex issue, interviewer Michael Wolff found, does not appear to weigh heavily on the candidate’s mind.
Wolff, as chronicled in The Hollywood Reporter , had to ask Trump three times about the possible British exit, dubbed “Brexit,” before getting a seemingly disinterested assessment of the momentous event.
Trump’s position isn’t new — he told Fox News last month that he thought the U.K. would be “better off” without the EU.
“I know Great Britain very well,” Trump continued. “I know, you know, the country very well. I have a lot of investments there. I would say that they’re better off without it. But I want them to make their own decision.”
Trump had at least one defender of his apparent unfamiliarity with the term.
