Clinton campaign hits Trump for seeing Brexit as boon to his business

An attendee wears a "Make Donald Drumpf Again" hat during the "Politicon" convention in Pasadena, CaliforniaBy John Whitesides and Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign accused Donald Trump on Sunday of caring more about how Britain's historic vote to leave the European Union would benefit his financial bottom line than how it would impact the U.S. economy. Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook acknowledged parallels between the populist anger and anti-establishment fervor that fueled the Brexit vote and Trump's rise to the nomination, but said the Republican candidate's reaction showed he was not fit to occupy the White House.

U.S. Supreme Court poised to issue major abortion ruling

A protester holds up a sign in front of the U.S. Supreme Court in WashingtonBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court is due on Monday to issue its first major abortion ruling since 2007 against a backdrop of unremitting divisions among Americans on the issue and a decades-long decline in the rate at which women terminate pregnancies. The court's decision on whether a Republican-backed 2013 Texas law placed an undue burden on women exercising their constitutional right to abortion is one of three remaining cases for the court to decide on Monday, the last day of its term. The last time the justices decided a major abortion case was nine years ago when they ruled 5-4 to uphold a federal law banning a late-term abortion procedure.

Brexit crisis tops off rough stretch in Obama's push for legacy

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks at a fundraiser for Washington Governor Jay Inslee in SeattleBy Roberta Rampton SEATTLE (Reuters) - The financial and political fallout from Britain's vote to leave the European Union has added to a string of setbacks for President Barack Obama as he works to burnish his legacy before his presidency ends in January 2017. The Brexit decision came after a deadlock in the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday effectively ended Obama's push to overhaul immigration rules, and the week after the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. For Obama, the reversals heighten pressure on him and fellow Democrats to work harder for the Nov. 8 elections - particularly for the party's presumptive presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, who represents his best shot at making sure more of his policies are not rolled back.

Trump plays down post-Brexit market turmoil on Aberdeen visit

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump shakes hands with his workers after he landed on the golf course at his Trump International Golf Links in AberdeenU.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump played down market turmoil in the wake of Britain's decision to leave the European Union on a visit to his Trump International golf course in Aberdeen on Saturday. Wearing an open-necked shirt, a suit and a white baseball cap with his slogan "Make America great again", Trump was asked if he was worried about the volatility in financial markets following Britain's vote to leave the EU on Thursday. Trump, whose mother was Scottish, was greeted by around a dozen protesters at the course waving Mexican flags, rainbow flags for Gay Pride day and signs that read "Donald stop the hating" and "Shame on you for ruining a beautiful landscape." Trump last year proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States as a response to Islamist attacks in Paris and California, causing a furor in Europe.
