One man’s ideas of steady leadership is sometimes just that, one man’s view.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign went after GOP rival Donald Trump over his response to Brexit, questioning his leadership because he “cheered and celebrated” the United Kingdom voting to leave the European Union.
Looking to capitalize on a drop in stocks, Clinton adviser Jake Sullivan released a statement ripping Trump for embracing Britain’s stand for independence and self-reliance.
“Yesterday, amidst the global economic uncertainty that followed Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, American families watched as their 401(k) accounts lost more than $100 billion in value over the course of a day,” Sullivan said in the statement, according to The Hill.
“While markets tumbled and American families’ pocketbooks took a hit, Donald Trump cheered and celebrated,” he continued. “He patted himself on the back and boasted about the money that his golf courses would make as a result of the turmoil.”
Trump was in Scotland on Friday for the reopening of his Trump Turnberry golf course and when he was not dodging “swastika balls,” he applauded British voters who “took their country back” and noted that if the British pound takes a tumble because of Brexit, it could help his golf course.
“Look, if the pound goes down, they’re going to do more business,” he said. “When the pound goes down, more people are coming to Turnberry.”
Sullivan quickly pounced on the brash, albeit truthful statement.
“At a time when the world looks to the United States for steady leadership, Donald Trump once again proved two truths about his candidacy — that he is temperamentally unfit to be President of the United States and that he is in it for no one but himself,” the Clinton adviser said.
