WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Friday said she respected the United Kingdom's vote on leaving the European Union and was committed to maintaining America's relationships with both Britain and European countries.

"Our first task has to be to make sure that the economic uncertainty created by these events does not hurt working families here in America," she said in a statement.
