Brexit is the greatest act of self-harm any nation has committed in living memory. It will also weaken the EU, complicate efforts by the US to partner with the EU and undermine the UK’s utility to the US as a partner on regional and global issues. Nearly all of the arguments deployed by the Leavers to justify Brexit are factually incorrect or highly misleading. Prime Minister Cameron’s decision to call a referendum and his campaign to win it were deeply flawed. Similarly, Prime Minister May mismanaged the negotiations with the EU to leave with a deal. Brexit, especially one without a deal with the EU, will inflict significant economic and political costs on the UK and undermine US economic and political interests. The Trump administration’s delight in Brexit is deeply misguided.
