President Barack Obama is to visit the U.K. sometime in April to try to persuade the British public to vote to stay in the European Union when a referendum is held in June, according to a report in The Independent on Sunday.
The newspaper, which quoted an unidentified source in Downing Street, said Obama will visit Britain as "an extra leg of a trip to Germany next month."
According to the report, the source said: "Barack Obama is coming over at around that time. You wouldn't look stupid saying that (the president is going to tell British voters to stay in the EU). It would be pretty shocking if he didn't ask voters to stay in the EU."
