The Latest: Trump calls himself 'Mr. Brexit' in Tweet

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on Campaign 2016 (all times local):

10:45 a.m.

Donald Trump is predicting 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 then said "I think I will be called Mr. Brexit."

He 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.

3:30 a.m.

Weary Republican leaders are accepting Donald Trump's latest staff shake-up, hopeful that a new leadership team can reverse the New York businessman's struggles even as some worry it's too little too late.

The Republican National Committee has already conceded it may divert resources away from the presidential contest in favor of vulnerable Senate and House candidates if Trump's standing does not improve in the coming weeks.

RNC chief strategist Sean Spicer calls Trump's staffing changes the "healthy growth of the campaign at a senior level at a key point."

Trump on Wednesday announced a staff overhaul at his campaign's highest levels, the second shake-up in the past two months.

A combative conservative media executive with no presidential campaign experience, Stephen Bannon, will serve as CEO of Trump's White House bid.


Didn't Brits realize they made a mistake after the vote?

Don't let this be America too!

Quoting newlife1214:

He supported the Brexit movement 

Another example of his disasterous judgement.

Brexit hurts. The main groups of economists who have published studies in the campaign use different models and different data but speak with more unanimity on this subject than on any other. Erecting trade barriers with the EU would hit prosperity, which is not easily replaced by greater free trade elsewhere. Leaving the bloc will afford the country little additional regulatory freedom and there could be long-term consequences from the short-term upheaval of Brexit. Economists overwhelmingly think leaving the EU is bad for the UK economy.
