This Is What Trump Actually Meant When He Called Himself ‘Mr. Brexit’
Donald Trump’s Twitter got extra YOLO on Thursday morning.
Seemingly out of nowhere — aka no Twitter rant to be found to add some context — Trump tweeted this:
They will soon be calling me MR. BREXIT!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 18, 2016
From now on, I suppose, we can only refer to Trump as “Mr. Brexit.”
Trump himself did not make it clear what he meant by “Mr. Brexit,” and people were confused.

@realDonaldTrump Because you will divide a nation and people who voted for you will regret it the next day and want a do-over?

.@realDonaldTrump Just clarifying: Mr. Brexit in the sense that you seem too xenophobic to win, & we’ll spend years in recession, if you do?

So, we’d like to make a few guesses. In case you forgot, Brexit was when the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Many noted this as a dumb idea that arose from hate and xenophobiaand resulted in what will be a garbage fire economy and possibly Scotland leaving the UK.
So yeah, it’s basically what will happen if Trump wins.
In that respect, it actually makes a lot of sense Trump would call himself “Mr. Brexit.”
Much like Brexit, people will likely vote for Trumpout of fear, hate, xenophobia and confusion about how elections work. Like with Brexit,it’s possible anti-Trump people won’t show up to the polls, believing voting for Trump is such a silly idea, no one else will do it and the anti-Trumpside will win.
Like Brexit, voting for Trump is a risky move for our economy and global affairs and will result in the rest of the world changing how they do business with America.
America’s version of Scotland would be Texas. The state pastime of Texas is threateningsecession, so it makes sense it’d be the one to say“boy, bye.”
A new poll said Trump supporters in Texas would want to secede if Hillary Clinton wins. ButI spoke to a bunch of anti-Trump Republican delegates back at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, andI’m willing to bet anti-Trump supporters would say the same about what they’d want if Trump won.
So maybe, for once, Trump is right. If we let him win this election, we could very soon be calling him “Mr. Brexit.”
Do y’all know how we stop that from happening? Go vote. Learn the lessons of Brexit. Your vote matters. Don’t throw it away. Don’t let Trump become Mr. Brexit.
