According to a White House press release on Thursday (14/4/2016) the president will arrive in Britain on April 21 for a three-day visit, just two months before the country votes in an referendum on the issue.
“He will make very clear that this is decision for the people of the United Kingdom to make,” Obama’s close foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters.
“But we have no closer friend in the world and if we are asked our view as a friend, we’ll offer it.”
Rhodes said Obama would be “very straightforward and candid as a friend as to why the US believes that it is good for the UK to remain in the EU.”
Opinion polls suggest the June 23 vote will be a close one, but large numbers of voters remain undecided and Britain’s allies are keen for Europe’s second largest economy to stay in the bloc.
Aside from meeting British officials, Obama will have lunch with Queen Elizabeth II on April 22, one day after the long-serving monarch’s 90th birthday.
He will also stage a joint news conference with Prime Minister David Cameron, who is campaigning for a vote to remain in Europe despite broad support for “Brexit” within his Conservative Party.
On Sunday, after his stay in Britain, Obama will head on to a major industrial fair in Hannover, Germany, where he will give a more general speech on the challenges facing Europe.
Obama's intervention could boost the leave campaign if we all start reminding people of:
a) the disastrous outcome of Obama's wars,
b) The disastrous outcome of Obama's social engineering projects,
c) The disastrous results of Obama's green energy policy
d) The disastrous outcome of Obama's 'affordable healthcare policy
