Donald Trump calls himself ‘Mr Brexit’ in Tweet

Donald Trump on Thursday predicted that he’ll have a new nickname. Trump tweeted Thursday “They will soon be calling me MR. BREXIT!”
He offered no further explanation and the post was widely discussed – and sometimes mocked – on social media.
But Trump appeared to be referring to comments he made Wednesday in an interview on Fox News. In that exchange, he was discussing the political “movement” fueling his campaign and the reporter noted that “the world is changing” and mentioned Brexit, the June vote for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.
Trump supported the Brexit movement and suggested it was “the people taking the country back.” His self-appointed nickname likely was drawing parallels between his campaign and that outcome.
