TheStreet's London Bureau Chief Martin Baccardax is visiting the States. 

So, of course, TheStreet kicked off his visit with a trip to the tree outside of the New York Stock Exchange. 

Baccardax broke down a number of issues from the Brexit vote--which took place Wednesday night--to Donald Trump stating that he would consider intervening in the case of Hauwei's CFO Meng Wanzhou, who is currently in Canadian custody.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump told Reuters he was pleased with the early progress in trade talks with Beijing, and said he would be prepared to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping if it would bring the sides closer to a comprehensive agreement. He also said he was willing to intervene in the legal proceedings surrounding Huawei's CFO, who was granted bail in Canada Tuesday but still faces extradition to the United States on charges she helped the company evade sanctions on Iran.

"If I think it's good for the country, if I think it's good for what will be certainly the largest trade deal ever made - which is a very important thing - what's good for national security - I would certainly intervene if I thought it was necessary," Trump said in an interview with Reuters in the Oval Office.

Watch to see what else Baccardax has to say about the global issues.
