Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson hailed the outcome of the Brexit vote, applauding the United Kingdom for rejecting “crony capitalism" by choosing to leave the European Union.

“I think what the Brexit vote represents is Britain saying, look they’ve had an end to the crony capitalism of the European Union,” he said during a speech at Politicon on Saturday, adding that EU regulations had hampered trade for the U.K.
Johnson also told the Washington Post that Americans should not lecture the British over the vote.

"We can view Britain's exit from the [European Union] as some kind of catastrophic event, or as an opportunity," Johnson said in a statement. "It is perfectly appropriate for the British people to make their own decisions about their own economic futures. It is not for us, either previously or today, to lecture them about their own best interests."
