Should we keep an eye on what's happening in the EU? The UK withdrew from the EU yesterday. Will it have any implications for the U.S.? Britain and America has always had a close relationship. Will it become closer? My senses are heightened due to the timing the the UK withdrawing from the EU and our presidential election. I know AA have more important issues to focus on but do you think this may have an impact on America in some way--positive or negative? What do you think?

Europe is coming apart. Scotland may leave the UK. fools want to go back to the old days.
that is not going to happen with current connectivity.
falling markets affect everyone.

the pound is trashed. let them feel the pain.

I agree with jamesfrmphilly. I can't see this being a good thing for the UK at all. It is all to do with immigration, by voting out they think they might be able to curve the flow of people coming in. The likes of Farage want to go back to the days of having an almost all white nation. I don't see that happening.
Scotland who voted to Ramain in the EU now will push even harder to become independent, and Northern Ireland and Wales may very well follow.

Difficult times ahead for the UK, but maybe this is a lesson they need to learn.

This is a clear example of don't be emotional or listen to demagogues when making tough decisions. Be careful what you ask for! Now Scotland says their claim to separate is legitimate. Splitting is going to cost them both long and short term. So there may be a recession

Donald Trump’s first tweet about Brexit got shut down immediately


LONDON — The United Kingdom is in shock after the nation voted to leave the EU in a historic referendum, prompting David Cameron to announce his resignation as Prime Minister.

And, just when you thought this day couldn't get any more dramatic, Donald Trump has shown up in Scotland. Brilliant.

Naturally, Trump has already weighed in with his thoughts on Brexit, and it's safe to say that it didn't go down well. Like, at all.

Trump's excitement, however, was a little misjudged as Scotland actually voted for the UK to *remain* in the EU ...

Video: Britain’s decision to leave the E.U. is a warning to America


Like everybody else in London, I woke up this morning, after not much sleep, to graphic depictions of the pound crashing, the stock exchange collapsing and markets all over the world in turmoil. I have no doubt that tomorrow, or the next day, the story will be different. Traders will take a step back and notice that nothing, actually, has happened yet. There will be cheap assets to pick up. Markets will stabilize ...
