Donald Trump congratulated Scotland for voting to leave the European Union this morning, the only problem was, they actually voted to stay in!
Trump tweeted: “Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!”

All 32 authorities within the country actually voted to remain. There were also signs today that Scotland may renew its 2014 motion to leave the U.K. and rejoin the E.U.
Singer Lily Allen, sister of Game of Thrones actor Alfie Allen, was quick to point out Trump’s erroneous statement, tweeting: “Scotland voted IN you moron.”
