Donald Trump Touts Brexit Prediction Despite Saying No One Should Listen To Him

The United Kingdom will cease to be part of the European Union as the "leave" campaign emerged victorious in the Brexit vote last Thursday. Global markets -- particularly European and U.S. financial stocks -- have sold off considerably over the last two trading sessions.

Last Friday morning, Donald Trump gave a speech from his golf resort in Scotland.

"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!" he Tweeted. Scotland voted 62 percent to 38 percent to remain in the European Union.

The shenanigans haven't stopped.

"The media is unrelenting. They will only go with and report a story in a negative light. I called Brexit (Hillary was wrong), watch November," Trump tweeted Monday morning. Since Friday, he has been unrelenting in his Brexit prediction. Regardless if it's even something to be proud of, there is one tiny issue: He told the world we shouldn't pay attention to his prediction.

“I don't think anybody should listen to me because I haven't really focused on it very much," Trump told Fox Business last week. "But my inclination would be to get out, because you know, just go it alone."
