Presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, promoting his new Scottish golf course this morning, called Britain's vote to exit the European Union "a great thing" that showed people want to "take their country back" just like he's promising to do in the U.S.

Presumed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton opposed "Brexit," but said in a statement she respects "the choice the people of the United Kingdom have made."

NPR White House reporter Scott Horsley talks with Here & Now host Peter O'Dowd about how shock waves from the pro-"Brexit" vote will be felt in the U.S. presidential race.
