Trump Brexit Pooyaka

Trump and Brexit

Today, 20 November 2017, Donald John Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. About six months ago, in the Brexit referendum, the British voted for the UK to leave the European Union. Only 52% of the Brits were in favour of the Brexit and Trump failed to win the popular vote (his victory came as the result of the electoral college system). Both victories surprised or at least, went against the opinion of many experts. That is why some consider the two events as mere anomalies. However, in this article, I suggest that we’d better view them as harbingers of a new era.
