Trump tries to play down Americans' fear of Brexit fallout
ABERDEENSHIRE - Donald Trump is trying to play down Americans' fears about the possible financial fallout from the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union.
The U.S. stock market and global markets plunged in the wake of Thursday's "leave" vote, and that's led to worries about Americans' retirement plans and savings.
Trump was visiting one of his golf resorts on Saturday, outside Aberdeen, Scotland, and he offered this assessment for his countrymen: "This shouldn't even affect them, frankly, if it's done properly, if we had proper leadership."
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee later told reporters that the stock market's fall on Friday was due to Wall Street's worries about President Barack Obama's economic policies and the U.S. debt.
