A US-UK trade agreement is not going to happen ‘any time soon,’ Obama said during a joint news conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron.
‘Not because we don’t 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, which is hugely inefficient,’ the U.S. leader said.
Obama faced a furious backlash overseas this morning over what has been called a ‘downright hypocritical’ push for Britain to stay in the European Union.
In a highly controversial intervention in the EU referendum campaign, Obama pleaded with British voters in a local newspaper and then the press conference not to cut ties with Brussels.

Little realizing that in speaking at all, he's swung voters to vote for leaving the EU. People in the UK, a good many of 'em anyway, are going to react much like Americans did when so many Europeans wanted John Kerry to be President and said so loudly...to the aggravation of many Americans.
Odd, the similarities, eh?
UK will vote as they will, and more power to 'em. Mr. Obama needs to shut the hell up, he's only got eight more months, or there'bouts, left in office. He's a lame duck...who hasn't even named a ninth Supreme Court justice yet. So, you all can safely ignore him, just like we are.

ATS has many Members in the U.K. and I think Americans would like to hear their candid opinions on this whole thing.
