Delaney Statement on Brexit Chaos


FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – Today, the British Parliament overwhelmingly rejected a proposed Brexit deal. Presidential candidate John Delaney releases the following statement:

“The truth is Brexit was never honestly sold to voters, which is why the U.K. finds itself in such a difficult position right now. Leaving the European Union will, in fact, hurt British citizens, but staying is not an option after a referendum, unless they have a second.

“The Brexit chaos shows that the answer to globalization isn’t to turn inward or to play into the politics of fear – which happened with Trump and the Leave campaign – but to create new policies that make capitalism more just and create meaningful public and private investment in areas and communities left behind.”
