Donald Trump to Visit the U.K. a Day After ‘Brexit’ Vote

1 minute read

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will travel to the United Kingdom this month to reopen a golf course there, visiting just a day after a scheduled referendum on whether the country should remain in the European Union.

Trump will dedicate the renovated Trump Turnberry golf course in Scotland on June 24—just after the so-called “Brexit” vote. Turnberry spokesperson Lisa McGhee confirmed the date, telling AFP that, “There will be an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with invited guests, and Mr. Trump himself.”

A spokesman for British Prime Minister David Cameron told AFP that there were “no plans” for the two men to meet. Cameron and other English lawmakers—including London Mayor Sadiq Khan—have criticized the New York businessman over his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States.

Trump has previously said he thinks Britons should vote to leave the E.U.
