Trump breaks with Obama (Hillary and Bernie too) on Brexit (the UK leaving the EU)

Britain wouldn't be hurt "at all" in terms of trade negotiations with the United States if it exited the European Union, Donald Trump says.

President Barack Obama had warned in an April visit to London that Britain would move to "the back of the queue" in negotiating trade deals with the United States should it exit the European Union.

He said a trade deal between the two countries could still happen, "but it's not going to happen any time soon because our focus is in negotiating with a big bloc, the European Union, to get a trade agreement done."

"Britain's such a great ally that they went into things that they shouldn't have gone into -- like, as an example, going into Iraq, OK? With me, they'll always been treated fantastically," he said.

I don't imagine there is much that Trump has not broken with Obama on. Not surprisingly Trump has broken with Bernie ("wants the United Kingdom to remain a member of the European Union" and Hillary ("urges Britain to remain in the European Union" as well as with Obama.

1. It says something...

...that the grand plan of "vote leave" is heavily dependent on America electing a blatant fascist in November.

And then people wonder why I back Britain remaining a member of the EU.
