“I happened to be in Scotland, at Turnberry, cutting a ribbon when Brexit happened,” Trump said. “And we had a vast amount of press there and I said, Brexit — this was the day before, you probably remember — I said Brexit is going to happen, and I was scorned in the press for making that prediction.”

Truth: Trump traveled to Scotland June 24th on business the day after the Brexit vote (June 23) to open a golf course. He Tweeted:
Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!

Scotland voted overwhelmingly against the Brexit referendum and several Scotts had some very memorable responses to Trump’s tweet.
