U.S. President Barack Obama implored young British people not to pull back from the world on Saturday, a day after he warned the country of the risks of voting to leave the European Union in a referendum in June.
"We see new calls for isolationism, for xenophobia," Obama told young people at a "town hall" event in London. "When I speak to young people, I implore them, and I implore you, to reject those calls to pull back."
"I am here to ask you to reject the notion we are gripped by forces that we cannot control. And I want you to take a longer and more optimistic view of history," he said.
