PHILADELPHIA (Sputnik) — The architects of the Brexit vote "put forward grandiose promises" and later reneged on them, Sullivan claimed. "We think the American people have seen that, and it is going to make them more skeptical of grandiose promises on this side of the Atlantic in this election."
Sullivan warned against analogizing the US and UK votes, adding that "to the extent you can draw lessons from the Brexit vote, many of them cut in favor of the kinds of arguments Hillary Clinton has been making on the campaign trail."
Following a close Brexit vote in June, some UK citizens said they regretted their decision to leave the European Union. The vote led to temporary financial market instability and the appointment of a new UK Prime Minister, Theresa May.
