Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'll be very surprised if Trump is re-elected.  He has lost suburban white women, as evidenced by the 2018 Midterms, the demographic that won him the '16 election.

As far as Brexit ....

I expect companies to start fleeing the UK now that the Thing Is Done.  It is a no-brainer to go for a $16 trillion, 320 million people, market over a declining $1 trillion and 80 million people market.  For financial services, etc., it is a trade-off between a US$80.27 trillion global economy versus a declining $1 trillion.

Rees-Moog knows this.  He's already moved his financial company to Ireland.
