Barack Obama is currently visiting the United Kingdom, but his trip isn’t going well at all.
According to The Gateway Pundit, the British media slammed Obama when they asked him about the hypocrisy of coming to lecture Great Britain on the upcoming Brexit vote in June. Here’s how the exchange happened:
ITV Reporter: British reporters in various degrees of politeness they have said to you that you should really keep your views to yourself. With that in mind, Mr. President, do you still think it was the right thing to intervene in this debate?… ANd what happens if the UK does decide in June to leave the European Union?
Barack Obama: This is a decision for the people of the United Kingdom to make. I am not coming here to fix any votes… Maybe some point down the line there might be a UK-US trade agreement but it’s not going to happen anytime soon because our focus is in negotiating with a big block the European Union to get a trade agreement done. And the UK is going to be in the back of the queue. Not because we have a special relationship but because given the heavy lift on any trade agreement, us having access to a big market with a lot of countries rather than trying to do piecemeal trade agreements is hugely inefficient.
We didn’t think it was possible, but the British may actually hate Obama more than we do!
