President Barack Obama is siding with Prime Minister David Cameron in advocating for Britain to stay in the European Union, but both leaders want voters to decide.
He wrote in an op-ed in The Telegraph published Friday, "The European Union doesn’t moderate British influence — it magnifies it. A strong Europe is not a threat to Britain’s global leadership; it enhances Britain’s global leadership."
On June 23, British voters will decide whether or not to remain in the EU, an ongoing debate known as "Brexit."
