Tim Kaine on Foreign Policy

Democratic Senate Challenger; previously Governor

 


Maintain relations with Britain & EU to move beyond Brexit

Q: Your views on "Brexit," the British exit vote from the European Union?

DONALD TRUMP: People want to see borders. People want to have independence. And you see it all over Europe. You're going to have many other cases; I think it's happening in the United States.

Q: Do you think he's right that there's a parallel?

SEN. TIM KAINE: There's a couple things you've got to understand. Young voters, those under 50, especially millennials, overwhelmingly voted to stay. And it was older voters who voted to leave. And certainly immigration issues are important and a concern about some of the European regulation, et cetera. It's a huge deal. It really is. And the important thing for us is because the relationship with Britain has been so strong, and we're so close to European nations, we have to help them find a path over the next couple years to do this in a way that can keep ties rather than tear ties apart.
