Donald Trump applauds Brits for taking their country back

On Friday, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump touched down in Western Scotland. Ostensibly, he had traveled to Britain to relaunch Trump Turnberry, one of two luxury golf courses that he owns in the country. But his timing was conspicuous: Trump’s visit came hours after Britain voted to leave the European Union, an extraordinary move that Donald Trump had previously expressed support for.

At a raucous press conference, Trump told Brits that they were right to “take their country back,” and drew parallels between the political forces driving both Brexit and his presidential run.

Outside the golf course, a small band of protesters gathered for an anti-Trump demonstration. They worry about the global spread of Trump-style, right-wing populism.

Will Britain Bring Back the Hunt? – The British Election

Just weeks before the UK’s general election, Prime Minister David Cameron pledged that if re-elected, he would work to overturn the 2004 Hunting Act, which made it illegal to hunt wild animals with large packs of hounds. With that, Conservative Party leader Cameron thrust the issue of hunting onto Britain’s election agenda — kicking up a heated debate that can seem to pitch rich against poor, tradition against modernity, and city against countryside. Labour, the main opposition party has in turn vowed to defend the hunting ban.

On both sides of the line, activists now speak of a reignited “class war.” VICE News traveled across the British countryside, meeting with hunters, activists, balaclava-clad “hunt saboteurs,” and everyday Brits who say that urban politicians just don’t get their country way of life.
