Donald Trump had his say in response to the Brexit results, hosting a press conference in Scotland this morning where he spoke at great length about the importance of his golf resort. Soon after, however, Hillary Clinton issued a statement of her own.
"We respect the choice the people of the United Kingdom have made. Our first task has to be to make sure that the economic uncertainty created by these events does not hurt working families here in America. We also have to make clear America's steadfast commitment to the special relationship with Britain and the transatlantic alliance with Europe.
"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 interests. It also underscores the need for us to pull together to solve our challenges as a country, not tear each other down."
I've seen some suggestions that Clinton's statement was incomplete because she didn't directly criticize the outcome of yesterday's vote. Perhaps, but let's not forget that as Secretary of State, Clinton learned quite a bit about diplomacy, especially when it comes to our closest allies.
If Clinton wins in November, she's going to have to work closely with British Prime Minister David Cameron's successor, and for her, there's no real upside to declaring, even subtly, "The U.K. just screwed up in a big way."
More interesting, at least to me, was her emphasis on "calm, steady, experienced leadership in the White House."
