How Donald Trump Compares His Campaign to Brexit


June 23, 2016, was the day when Britain shocked the whole world with its decision to exit the European Union: the famous Brexit. At that time, Britain got divided into two, The Euroskeptic and the Europhiles. Common people, leaders, and politicians of the world were all having contradictory opinions. The controversial and blunt politician Donald Trump also openly supported Brexit.

Nowadays, Trump is doing his presidential campaigns. In his speeches and rallies, he is always seen comparing Brexit with his election campaigns. He congratulated Britain for making a strong decision to exit EU despite the fear of downfall of the economy. He emphasized the facts that now Britain is free to control its borders and make its own decisions. He also claimed that he sees a similarity between people of Britain and U.S. by apparently speaking on their behalf that people of U.S. want to have their borders separated, not to forget that he has always been advocating the ban of Muslims in U.S. and a border with Mexico. Trump is a clever man; he is taking full advantage of Brexit by appreciating the decision on every possible platform and criticizing opponents and even the president himself for supporting Brexit.
