Clinton swipes at Trump over Brexit

0

WASHINGTON: Democrat Hillary Clinton on Sunday took a swipe at Republican rival Donald Trump’s stance on Brexit, saying that “bombastic comments” do more harm than good during such times. Trump has hailed Britain’s vote to leave the European Union as “fantastic,” telling reporters during a visit to Scotland on Friday that he thinks the Brexit is “a great thing.” Clinton, who was speaking to the US Conference of Mayors, did not mention Trump by name, but told city leaders that the United States should be governed by those “who put the interest of the American people ahead of their personal business interests.” Trump was in Scotland for the ceremonial re-opening of his refurbished Trump Turnberry golf course. America needs leaders “who understand that bombastic comments in turbulent times can actually cause more turbulence,” Clinton said. “And that’s why steady, experienced leadership is so important at times like these.”
