Dear Scotland, We Get It. Love, Hillary

On September 18, 2014, Scotland voted in an independence referendum to remain in the United Kingdom.  Tonight, the UK is tallying votes in a referendum held today on whether to remain in the European Union.  Should they leave, the effects on the economy promise to be bumpy. 401Ks and 403Bs, where many of us have our retirement funds tied up, are likely to be affected, not in a good way.
Donald Trump (who did not initially know what the Brexit was and probably thought it was a breakfast sandwich) has said "Why do they need them?"  He thinks a leave vote would be fine. He, himself, is leaving - (don't get excited, only temporarily) - for Scotland tonight, not that he is an especially welcome guest.
You may have seen this documentary: You've Been Trumped.  If you have not, you should find a way to see it.  It explains brilliantly why the people of Scotland are not especially happy to see Trump.

Scotland is not alone in their disdain for Trump
A previously announced stop in Ireland has apparently been cancelled.   Protests had been planned.
