NBC’s Richard Engel on Global Reaction to Possible Trump Win: ‘Catastrophic’ for U.S.

NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel tonight broke down the global reaction to a possible Donald Trump win, and he didn’t sugarcoat it.

He said people the world over believe this would be “catastrophic for the United States” and its position in the world.

He said they worry “it emboldens our enemies and adversaries, it makes our allies terrified that we’re not going to be their allies anymore.”

There is also apparent fear that there will be so much navel-gazing that America won’t lead on the world stage anymore, which leaves a vacuum for Russia and China.
