Donald Trump is not worried about a downward slide of the British pound, telling reporters it would actually increase business at his golf course in Scotland.
"Look, if the pound goes down, they're going to do more business," Trump said at his sprawling Turnberry golf resort
in Scotland. "When the pound goes down, more people are coming to Turnberry."
The pound plummeted more than 10 cents as results of Thursday's Breixit vote trickled in, indicating the United Kingdom is in favor of leaving the European Union.

Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is in Scotland for the reopening of his Trump Turnberry complex. He said he supported the result of the controversial EU referendum.
"They took back control of their country. It's a great thing," the billionaire real-estate tycoon said.
