1. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, Presumptive US Republican presidential nominee :
"One of the big votes in the history of Europe and Scotland and everywhere. It was very excting coming in. We were landing and we'd just heard the results so I wish everybody a lot of luck. I think that it's purely historic and what's happening is historic."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, Presumptive US Republican presidential nominee :
"They want to take their country back and they want to have independence in a sense. And you see it with Europe, all over Europe. You're going to have more than just, in my opinion, more than just what happened last night. You're going to have I think many other cases where they want to take their borders back, they want to take their monetary back. They want to take a lot of things back. They want to be able to have a country again. So I think you are going to have this happen more and more, I believe that. And I think it's happening in the United States. It's happening by the fact I have done so well in the polls, you look at the recent polling and you look at the swing states and you see how I'm doing and I haven't even started my campaign yet essentially. I mean we've done very well, we are raising a lot of money for the Republican party."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, Presumptive US Republican presidential nominee :
"I really do see a parallel between what's happening in the United States and what's happening here, people want to see borders, they don't necessarily want people pouring into their country, that they don't know who they are and where they come from. They have no idea and I think not only did it win but it won by a much bigger margin than people thought it would happen."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, Presumptive US Republican presidential nominee :
"You just have to embrace it, it's the will of the people. It's not a question of approaching it. It's the will of the people. It's always the will of the people, ultimately that wins out."

"Look if the pound goes down, their going to do more business. If the pound goes down more people are coming to Turnberry, frankly. And the pound has gone down. And let's see what the impact of that is. But I think places like Scotland and England and different places in Great Britain I think you're going to see a lot of activity."
Donald Trump, in a visit to Scotland on Friday, hailed Britain's vote to leave the European Union, drawing parallels to the anger driving his own presidential campaign.
"I love to see people take their country back," he told reporters at a news conference at one of his golf courses in Scotland. "And that's really what's happening in the United States" and other parts of the world.
The campaign leading to Thursday's stunning vote for Britain to leave the European Union shared some of the populist themes driving the Trump campaign, including a wariness of immigration, concern about borders and skepticism of the value of multinational organizations.
"People want to see borders. They don't necessarily want people pouring into their country that they don't know who they are and where they come from," Trump said.
Trump, whose visit to Scotland is his first international trip since sealing sufficient delegate support to be the GOP standard bearer this fall, also predicted that other nations will follow the United Kingdom's lead.
