Clinton, Trump Weigh In On The Brexit

With one major source of market uncertainty ending up a worst-case scenario for global investors on Friday, the markets are now looking to the U.S. presidential election as the next major unknown. Now that the Brexit vote is official, both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have weighed in on the decision.

“This time of uncertainty only underscores the need for calm, steady, experienced leadership in the White House to protect Americans’ pocketbooks and livelihoods, to support our friends and allies, to stand up to our adversaries, and to defend our interest,” Clinton said in a statement.

Clinton had spoken out in opposition to a Brexit vote in recent weeks.

Trump, on the other hand, had been in favor of a Brexit and praised the decision to leave the EU.

“They’re angry over borders. They’re angry over people coming into the country and taking over. Nobody even knows who they are,” Trump said in a news conference on Friday. “They’re angry about many, many things. They took back control of their country. It’s a great thing.”

The populist spirit underlying the Brexit campaign in the U.K. is the same type of enthusiasm that Trump is trying to drum up in American voters in November.
