To be honest, I have not been paying much attention to Brexit, or what it means to us. As the L.A. Times pointed out last fall, though, we actually SHOULD be more concerned about the final outcome. If the U.K. slides into irrelevance, the United States will lose a critical foothold in Europe and beyond. Since Trump has managed to piss off nearly all of our allies, including the U.K., our country will also be less relevant on the worth stage as well.
Earlier today, Theresa May announced that she will step down as prime minister after she "delivers Brexit". She is seeking to win majority backing for her withdrawal deal, and her political future was the price demanded by Brexit supporters. Since Emanuel Macron's approval rating is even worse than Trump's (26%) that means that Angela Merkel is now the leader of the free world. Nobody except Trump's crazy base would still consider him to be the "leader" of the free world.
If you think I'm crazy, ask yourself this:
Who looks more powerful in the picture below, Angela Merkel or Trump?
By the way, she has a PhD in quantum chemistry, and is fluent in Russian. Her current term as chancellor expires in 2021 - and she is not seeking re-election. Trump has a "piled high and deeper" (PhD) degree in bullshit, and is not fluent in ANY language, including English.
