As the global economy reeled after Great Britain voted to leave the European Union, the Your World show continued Fox’s cheerleading of the Brexit, this time by suggesting we’re about to get the “Ronald Reagan economy, part 2” in the form of a Donald Trump presidency.

Host Maria Bartiromo excitedly asked guest Art Laffer, “Might we be looking at a Margaret Thatcher/Ronald Reagan economy part 2?”

Laffer sounded triumphant. “I think this will lead to a Donald Trump presidency, ultimately, and a lot of prosperity for the world. I’m very excited about what’s happening,” he said.

Yeah, if Trump isn’t too busy talking about his properties, that is.

“I don’t understand why we’re not hearing a tax reform plan from Secretary Clinton,” Bartiromo said. “I know what Donald Trump’s plan is, a 15% corporate tax rate. You would think is going to be a huge game changer for the economy.”

Laffer complained that the U.S. has “the single highest corporate tax rate in the OECD.” But not after deductions we don’t. Yet, Bartiromo did not correct Laffer.

Watch it above, from the June 24 Your World.
