ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Hillary Clinton appeared to accuse Republican rival Donald Trump on Sunday (June 26) of caring more about how Britain's historic vote to leave the European Union would benefit his own financial bottom line than how it would impact the U.S. economy. The Democratic presumptive presidential nominee was speaking at the annual meeting of the United States Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis, Indiana. Trump had praised the Brexit result as an example of the people "taking their country back." Global stock markets nosedived on Friday and economic experts warned of a potential global recession after the shocking British vote to pull out of the European Union. Markets prepared for the possibility of more pain on Monday. The unexpected outcome quickly reverberated through the Nov. 8 race for the White House on Friday. Trump called Brexit a model for his insurgent campaign while Clinton said the uncertainty underscores the need for calm, experienced leadership. "No one should be confused about America's commitment to Europe. Not an autocrat in the Kremlin. Not a presidential candidate on a Scottish golf course," Clinton said on Sunday, in a reference to Trump.
