STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): And before the vote in Great Britain, Hillary Clinton and the president of the United States, because they're establishment people, they both said, “You know, they should stay.”


BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Your dad said they should go.

TRUMP: 100 percent.

DOOCY: Because people are sick and tired of the establishment taking away people's freedoms. Over there, over here.

TRUMP: My father called it right. I mean, he called it right. And, by the way, if you look at sentiment of that country, and I spend a tremendous amount of time over there for work, but if you look at sentiment of that country, it's very much the same as the sentiment of the U.S. right now. They want borders. They want security. They want jobs. Right? I mean they want to be safe. I mean these are the same things that are happening in the United States right now. And the fact that our leaders -- right, the fact that our leaders are missing these cues from the people, with our greatest allies, is astonishing.

DOOCY: And see, that's the message that the establishment -- you know, people are sick and tired of being bossed around by faceless bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. And yet the mainstream media spun this. I watched a little of the press over the weekend. “Oh he shows up, this important vote on Brexit, and all he does is talk about your golf course.”

TRUMP: It's amazing. I mean totally, totally unrelated, he was there to support me. He was there for exactly 36 hours.

DOOCY: And he talked about it for ten minutes but then for 45 minutes he talked about Brexit.

TRUMP: And that’s how awful our politicians are. Then the ad comes out of him sitting there swinging a golf club. I mean he didn't touch a golf club in the 36 hours that he was there.


KILMEADE: By the way, how unbelievable is it that the Democrat would talk about golf when the president has golfed more than anybody in 400 years.

TRUMP: Yeah. That's right. That's right. The president -- I mean every single major tragedy that we've had as a nation, during his administration, do you know where he's been? He's been on a golf course. You know, it is ironic, Brian.


Politifact: Who Took More Vacation -- George W. Bush Or Barack Obama?
