OBAMA HEADS TO GERMANY AND ENDORSES ANGELA MERKEL’S DECISION TO LET IN A MILLION GERMAN MIGRANTS
Barack Obama today declared the European Union is one of the ‘greatest achievements of modern times’ as he continued his blitz against Brexit.
Speaking in Germany on the latest leg of his farewell tour, the US President praised the EU for ending centuries of war in Europe.
And he claimed the ‘entire world’ needs a ‘united Europe’ days after making a forceful case against Brexit while on a visit to London.
Mr Obama’s repeated interventions on the referendum have infuriated campaigners who want Britain to vote to leave the European Union on June 23.
In a speech at the Hannover trade fair, Mr Obama said: ‘The United States and the entire world needs a strong and prosperous and democratic and united Europe.’
Obama’s plea in a speech capping a week-long trip came days after he made a forceful argument against Great Britain leaving the European Union.
The possibility of Britain leaving the EU, along with the terrorist threat and tensions among nations grappling with the influx of refugees fleeing Syria and other nations, have raised questions about the strength of European Unity.
