AYRSHIRE, Scotland (AP) — Donald Trump is saluting the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union, saying "they took back their country, it's a great thing."

Trump arrived at his Turnberry golf course in Scotland a day after the so-called Brexit vote.

He said "people are angry all over the world," and said that worries about "the borders" fueled the UK's vote. He called the decisions to leave "fantastic" and "great."

Trump also suggested that other counties may follow the UK's lead, saying "this will not be the last." He said that people were angry about similar things in the United States.

He did not answer a question about whether British Prime Minister David Cameron should have decided to resign.
