ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, whose own rise has been fueled by similar disenchantment with the political establishment, said on Friday (June 24) the Brexit vote is the "will of the people, you just have to embrace it." In Scotland to reopen a golf resort, the wealthy New York businessman, told reporters: "I see a big parallel. I think people really see a big parallel. A lot of people are talking about that, and not only the United States but other countries." "People want to take their country back. They want to have independence in a sense. You see it with Europe - all over Europe," said Trump, 70, the presumptive Republican nominee to the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election. "You're going to have many other cases where they want to take their borders back, they want to take they're 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're going to have this happen more and more. I really believe that and I think that it's happening in the United States. It's happening by the fact that I've done so well in the polls." Trump arrived in his signature helicopter at Turnberry near his clubhouse resort, a Scottish flag blowing in the wind. He said the vote was a setback also to President Barack Obama, a Democrat who had urged Britons to stay in the EU.
