In a surprise, Brits vote to leave EU. Great for them. Stocks, pound fall. Gold rises.

Betting sites, polls and rulers were all wrong about Brexit.
"The betting sites were wrong. The polls were wrong. The politicians were wrong."
This is good news for Trump.

Obama and Clinton are on the wrong side of history regarding Brexit, Trump on the right.
"Republican strategists had panned Trump’s decision to travel to the UK in the midst of campaign turmoil, and in the wake of his blistering attack on Hillary Clinton earlier this week.
Now, however, it looks like a risk that paid off handsomely, in the currency of foreign policy credibility." 
That's why he was invisible. The press wouldn't cover him.

Brexit comment:
"This is a sign of people being fed up. It’s a sign of protest against the powers-that-be. I’d like to think that it’s more, that it’s a sign of rebellion against too much political power in the hands of invisible and distant powers, a protest against power itself. "
It's the same sentiment behind Trump's success. This may be the most momentous political event since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Minority babies outnumber whites in US.
