9:00 am
conference following a meeting in london where they have been discussing we are told efforts to combat crisis as well as discussions over the referendum over whether or not great britain should remainin the european union . barack obama has weighed in on the case for why he believes why they should remain in the eu. the two have been discussing that today and michelle obama, the first lady had lunch with green to celebrate her 90th birthday and then, prime minister david cameron and the president meeting to discuss a joint effort in the fight against terrorism and isis. we are told that he is on his way to 10 downing street. it should be arriving any moment. we're expecting that news conference and they are going to buy the way waiting, the beginning of this news conference.
9:01 am
a lot of the world curious to hear. they will have opening they will have opening statements and question and answer sessions. we are going to listen to president obama and david cameron. >> president obama on his fifth visit to the united kingdom, has been president for seven years. i have been president for six years and are two countries have worked together through the most difficult and troubled global times. we need to revive growth and create jobs in our economy. new threats from security, terrorism in the south and of course huge global challenges like climate change. through it all the partnership between our nations has never been more important. when 70 years ago last month
9:02 am
winston churchill first described the special relationship it was not merely an enduring expression of friendship but a way of working together, two nations, kindred spirits who share the same values and same affliction to many issues that we face. justice for our predecessors, that has been true for barack and me with a we are working to deliver economic security, national security and challenges and today we have been discussing all three. on economic security we succeeded in getting our economy growing and creating jobs for our people, the global economy facing serious challenges but last year britain, the united states, growing major economies in the world. we both know how important trade deals are driving global growth, so we are the most determined to achieve our determination of the us e.u. treaty and we are working to push this forward adding billions to our economy,
9:03 am
set standards for the rest of the world and national security together with our partners in the e.u. we used our economic muscle to avoid the calamity of an iranian nuclear deal, against russia in response to integration, we secured the first ever legally binding deal on climate change being formally signed to 150 government at the united nations and transform the way we use our diplomacy and military to make progress on the most difficult issues of our time. in east africa we helped turn around the prospects for somalia. for instance thanks to a e.u. operation led by britain, supported by america, it is no longer a safe haven for terrorists. in west africa, british leadership secured 1 billion to support our efforts to reach, to defeat the outbreak of a vote
9:04 am
with britain taken to lead the united states in liberia, france and ginny. just as we made progress in all these, there are many me. nose out the situation in libya is immensely challenging. we finally have a government in which we can work. syria and iraq continuing coalition efforts. more than 25,000 fighters have been killed, 600 in the last month alone. the total number of fighters estimated to be at the lowest in two years. the iraqi security forces are steadily pushing dice out of its territory. in syria, our partners have liberated kurdish areas and cut off the main route between rocca and mosul and we discussed experts to deal with the migration crisis. it doesn't directly affect the united states.
9:05 am
in the uk we maintained our borders and continue to do so. we both know the challenge this poses to our friends and the continent of europe, this is the sort of challenge that can only happen effectively through international cooperation. and we discussed how to contribute to the e.u. emphasis. we also need to break the business model so together with our e.u. partners we look at whether there is more we can do to strengthen the coast guard. we will be discussing this further when we meet the leaders of france, germany and italy and this will be another opportunity why working together collectively we can better protect ourselves from the threats we face. we covered a number of new emerging challenges, more important than ever that we work
9:06 am
together with international partners to identify problems and deal with them rapidly. just as we have done with solar we need to stave international cooperation on dealing with the zika virus for the challenge of antimicrobial resistance, cybersecurity and tackling corruption. britain has a big anticorruption summit next month with john kerry. we have talked about the things we wanted to achieve. one of the biggest problems is for a country that wants to take action against corruption you have to go all around the globe to lobby for it. we would see anti-coordination efforts to help law enforcement agencies and investigators work together across different jurisdictions. if we get international agreement on this next level britain and america will contribute to set it up. all this work we have done together, at the same time we got to know each other very well, honored to have barack as
9:07 am
a friend, he followed the rules of basketball, i remember fondly the barbecue we had in number 10 downing st. serving service men and women who serve our country's together here in the united kingdom. i have always found barack to be one who gives sage advice, a man with a good heart and being a very good friend and always will be a good friend to the united kingdom. let me finish by saying this. in all the areas we discussed today, our collective power and reach is amplified by britain's membership of the european union. when it comes to the special relationship between our two countries there is no greater enthusiasm than me. i am proud to have the opportunity to be prime minister and stand outside the white house, my friend barack obama, a special relationship between our countries has never been stronger. i never felt constrained in any
9:08 am
way strengthening this relationship by the fact that we are in the european union. quite the reverse. we deliver corrupt people through the international groups, we enhance our security in the membership of nato, further our prosperity. and like those organizations britain's membership of the e.u. gives us a powerful tool to deliver on the prosperity and security and stand up for the values of our countries and now i think is a time to stay true to those values and stick together with our friends and allies in europe and around the world. thank you very much. >> thank you. as always it is wonderful to be here in london with my good friend david cameron. i have also come back to wish her majesty the queen a happy birthday.
9:09 am
earlier today michelle and i had the honor to join her majesty and her royal highness, the duke, as their guest at windsor castle. with best wishes to the american people. i have to say i have never been driven by a duke of edinburgh before. i can report that it was very smooth riding. as for her majesty, a source of inspiration to me and so many people around the world, she is truly one of my favorite people, should we be fortunate enough to reach 90 may we be as vibrant as she is. she is an astonishing person and a real jewel to the world and not just the united kingdom. the alliance between the united
9:10 am
states and the united kingdom is one of the oldest and strongest the world has ever known. when the us and the uk stand together we make our countries more secure, make our people more prosperous, and we make the world safer and better. that is one of the reasons my first oversea visitors president more than seven years ago was here to london at a time of global crisis. one thing i knew as green as i was as a new president was it was absolutely vital the united states and the united kingdom working together in international form tackle the challenges that i had. our success depends on our ability to coordinate and leverage our relationship that has an impact on other countries. i met with david on that big
9:11 am
visit. he was not yet prime minister but as our nations have a special relationship, david and i shared an extraordinary partnership. he has proven to be a great friend and one of my closest partners. over the six years our terms have overlapped, we have met or spoken more times than i can count. we share our country's beers with each other, i vouch for mine. taken in a basketball game in america, i think you should recall we were partners in that ping-pong game and we lost to some schoolchildren. i can't remember whether they were 8 or 10 but they were decidedly shorter than we were and they want us. samantha and michelle became good friends as well. the depth and breadth of that
9:12 am
special relationship helped us withchallenges of our time. around the world our joint efforts stopped at the outbreak of ebola, the he ran fred from obtaining a nuclear weapon, force the climate agreement in paris that will hopefully protect our planet for future generations. today our government along with 170 others are in new york to sign that agreement, the us, to help it take affect years earlier. we discussed the full array of challenges with security. we remain resolute in our efforts to prevent terrorist attacks and continue the progress we have made enrolling back and defeating isil. our forces are degrading isil's
9:13 am
finances and safe havens, keeping top leaders from the battlefield. we had to keep working to improve information sharing across europe for foreign fighters into outer syria. we discussed our efforts to resolve political conflict in the middle east from yemen to syria to libya to increase prospects for stability. in libya going forward we have an opportunity to support a new government to help libyans root out developments. in syria as challenging as it is we need to see more progress toward enduring these and we push for greater humanitarian access. we have to continue to invest in nato for overseas commitments from afghanistan to the aegean, to resolve the conflict in the ukraine to ensure allies are rightly concerned, all nato allies, nato targets of other
9:14 am
gdp on defense, something david has made sure happens in the uk to meet that standard. new actions we can take for the refugee crisis with nato allies and because strong defense relies on more than military spending helping to unleash the potential of others i want to thank people of the united kingdom for their generosity and humanitarian aid. we talk about promoting jobs, stronger growth through increased transatlantic trade and investment so young people achieve greater opportunity and prosperity. the prime minister and i discussed the upcoming referendum on whether or not the uk should remain part of the european union. let me be clear, ultimately this is something the british voters have to decide for themselves. as part of our special
9:15 am
relationship, part of being friends is to be honest, to let you know what i think. speaking honestly the outcome of that decision is a matter of deep interest to the united states because it affect our prospects as well. the united states lost the united kingdom as a partner, the united kingdom is at its best when helping to lead a stronger -- it leverages uk power to be part of the european union. i wrote in the op-ed today i don't believe the e.u. moderates british influence, it magnifies it. the us spreads values and practices across the continent. a single market brings extraordinary methods to the united kingdom. that ends up being good for america because we are more
9:16 am
prosperous when our best friends and closest allies have a strong, stable, growing economy. americans want britain's influence to grow including within europe. the fact is in today's world no nation is immune to the challenges we discussed. in today's world solving them requires collective action. all of us cherish our sovereignty. by country is pretty vocal about that. the us also recognizes that we strengthen our security through membership in nato, strengthen our prosperity in organizations like the g 20 and i think the uk strengthens our collective security and prosperity through the e.u.. in the 21 stoops century nations that make their presence felt on the world stage are not nations that go it alone but nations that team up to aggregate their
9:17 am
power and multiply their influence. precisely because britain's values and institutions are so strong and sound we want to make sure that influence is heard. and felt. that it influences how other countries think about critical issues. we have confidence that when the uk is involved in a problem they help solve it in the lightweight. that is why the united states cares about this. for centuries, europe was marked by war and violence. the architecture that our countries helped build with the e.u. provided the foundation for decades of prosperity on the
9:18 am
continent. what a remarkable legacy. legacy born out of what took place in this building. i happened to see in enigma on display. that was a reminder of the incredible innovation and collaboration of the allies in world war ii and the fact that neither of us could have won that alone. in the same way after world war ii we built out the international institutions and occasionally disagreements, but we willingly allowed those constraints because we understood by doing so we were able to institutionalize basic values of rule of law and
9:19 am
freedom and democracy that would benefit our citizens as well as people around the world. i think a british poet said no man is an island. even as island as beautiful as this. we are stronger together. we continue to tackle our challenges together and future generations will look back on hours as we look back on previous generations of english and american citizens who worked so hard to make this world safer and more secure and more prosperous and say that we did our part. is important not just in the
9:20 am
united states as well. >> thank you very much, we have some questions, we start with a question from the british press. >> you your self talk about the controversial timing, your comment on the e.u. referendum and a spirited debate we are having here. you are right that in the weeks before you arrive, you are acting hypocritically, america would not accept the loss of sovereignty we have to accept as part of the e.u. america would not accept levels of immigration from mexico that we had to accept from the e.u. and in various degrees of politeness they have said that you should keep your views to your self. with that in mind do you still think it was the right decision to intervene in the debate and what happens if the uk does
9:21 am
decide to leave the european union? >> let me repeat this is a decision for the people of the united kingdom to make. i am not here to fix any votes. i am not casting a vote myself. i am offering my opinion and in democracys everybody should want more information, not less, shouldn't be afraid to hear an argument being made. that is not a threat. that should enhance the debate particularly because my understanding is some folks on the other side have been ascribing to the united states certain actions if the uk does leave the e.u.. they say for example we will cut our own trade deals with the
9:22 am
united states. they are voicing an opinion about what the united states is going to do, you might want to hear from the president of the united states what the united states is going to do. on that matter for example i think it is fair to say maybe some point down the line there might be a uk/us trade agreement but it won't happen anytime soon because our focus is negotiating with a big block of the european union to get a trade agreement done. the uk is going to be in the back of the queue not because we don't have a special relationship but because given the heavylift on any trade agreement, not having access to a big market with a lot of countries rather than trying to do piecemeal trade agreements is hugely inefficient.
9:23 am
now to the subject at hand. the united states is in a different hemisphere, different circumstances, different sets of relationships with its neighbors than the uk does but i can tell you this. if right now i have got access to a massive market where i felt 44% of my assets, now i am thinking about leaving the organization that gives me access to that market and is responsible for millions of jobs in my country and responsible for an enormous amount of commerce and upon which a lot of businesses depend, that is not something i probably would do.
9:24 am
what i am trying to describe is a broader principle which is in our own way, we don't have a common market in the americans but in all sorts of ways the united states constrains itself in order to bind everyone under a common set of rules that makes everybody more prosperous. that is what we built after world war ii. the united states and the uk designed a set of institutions, whether it was the united nations or the wood structure, the imf, world bank, nato, across the board, that to some
9:25 am
degree constrained our freedom to operate. it meant occasionally we had to deal with some bureaucracy. it meant on occasion we had to persuade other countries and we don't get 100% of what we want in each case, but we knew by doing so everybody was going to be better off partly because the rules that were put in place were reflective of what we believe. if there were more free markets around the world, we knew we could operate better. if we have collective defense treaties through nato we understand we formalize an architecture that would deter
9:26 am
aggression rather than having piecemeal to put together alliances to defeat aggression, and that principle is at stake here. the last point i will make on this until i get the next question is as david said, magnifies the power of the uk. in just about every issue what happens in europe is going to have an impact here as what happens in europe will happen in the united states. we just discussed the refugee migration crisis and i told my team, sitting right here, we consider it a major national security issue that you have
9:27 am
uncontrolled migration into europe, not because these folks are coming to the united states but because if it destabilizes europe, our largest trading partner, it will be bad for our economy. if you start seeing divisions, that we can nato. that will have an impact on our collective security. if in fact i want somebody who is smart or common sense, thinking as i do in conversations about how migration is handled, someone who has a sense of compassion and recognizes immigration can enhance when done properly the assets of the country and not
9:28 am
just diminish them, i want david cameron in the conversation just as i want them in the conversation when we are having discussion about information sharing and counterterrorism activity. because i have confidence in the uk, and i know if we are not working effectively with paris or brussels those attacks will migrate to the united states, i want my strongest partners in that conversation so it enhances the special relationship, doesn't diminish it. >> let me make one point in response to that. this is our choice, the sovereign choice of the british people. as we make that choice it makes sense to listen to what our friends think, listen to their views.
9:29 am
that is what barack has been talking about today but it is worth remembering we make this choice, it is a british choice about the british membership of the european union. not being asked to make a choice about whether we support german style of membership or italian style of membership, britain has special status in the european union. in a single market, we are not part of the same currency, we are able to travel and live and work in other european countries and maintain our borders. on this vital issue of trade where the rock has made a clear statement we should remember why we are currently negotiating this trade deal, the biggest trade deal in the whole world, between the european union and the united states because britain played a leading part in pushing those talks to get going and announced them at the g8 in northern ireland when britain was in the chair of that
9:30 am
organization. it could be an absolute game changer to create the investment because we were part of this organization. >> following on that do you think the migration issue, european unity is a crisis point, you hope leaders gather in germany, can do about it and do you expect those nations to militarily support the possibility of ground troops to keep that situation from further straining europe when talking about future summits, maybe you can talk about whether you plan to go to hiroshima when you visit japan. prime minister cameron, the president came here to tell the
9:31 am
uk, in the e.u. as a friend, speaking honestly what would you advise americans do about donald trump? >> that was so predictable. i wouldn't describe the european unity as in a crisis but i would say it is under strain. some of that has to do with the aftermath of the financial crisis and the euro zone. it is important to emphasize as david points out that the uk is not part of the euro zone. so back to the british economy, has been different than it is.
9:32 am
we have seen strain through northern and southern parts of europe. the migration crisis amplifies a debate taking place not just in europe but the united states as well. at a time of globalization, at a time when a lot of the challenges we face are transnational as opposed to just focus on one country, there is a temptation to want to pull up the drawbridge, either literally or figuratively. we see that played out with debates taking place, and that debate is accelerated in europe but i am confident the ties that
9:33 am
bind europe together are much stronger than the forces trying to pull them apart. europe has undergone an extraordinary stretch of prosperity, maybe unmatched in the history of the world. if you think about the 20th century, the 21 stoop century, the 21 stoop century europe looks a lot better. the majority of europeans recognize that. they see that unity and peace have delivered sustained economic growth, reduced conflict, reduced violence, enhanced quality of life for people. i am confident that can continue. but i do believe it is important
9:34 am
to watch out for these fault lines that are developing. in that sense i do believe friends's to the, which if i am a citizen of the uk i am thinking solely in terms of how does this help the uk economy, how does it help create jobs in the uk, that is the right way to think of it but i also think this will send a signal that is relevant about whether the kind of prosperity we built together is going to continue or whether the forces of division end up being more prominent. that is part of the reason it is relevant to the united states and why i had the temerity to
9:35 am
weigh in on it. there were four other questions. i have got to figure out two to that answer. with respect to libya, david and i discussed our commitment to assist this amazing government. it is a challenge, that there are people in this government genuinely committed to building up estate. that is something we desperately want because both the united states and the united kingdom and a number of our allies more than prepared to invest in helping create border security, drive out terrorists, make sure that could be a thriving
9:36 am
society, relatively small population, resources, was not an issue we should subsidize libya. they are in a better position than some other countries that we have been helping. if they can just get their act together we want to provide that technical assistance to get that done. there is no plan for ground troops in libya. i don't think it would be welcomed by this new government. it would send the wrong signal. what we can do is provide our expertise and provide training and provide them a roadmap for how to get basic services to build up legitimacy. the one area where david and i are heavily committed is as this progresses, we can't wait if
9:37 am
isil is starting to get a foothold there. we are working not just with the libyan government but a lot of national partners to make sure we are getting the intelligence we need and in some cases taking action to prevent isil from having another stronghold from which to launch attacks against europe. you have to wait until i get to asia to start asking me asia questions. >> the question you ask me, this is not a general election but a referendum, it is a referendum that affects people in the united kingdom very deeply but also affect others in the european union, affects parliament like america or canada or australia or new zealand and as i look around the world it is hard to find a
9:38 am
country that wishes britain well and thinks we ought to leave the european union and it is our choice, we will make the decision, listen to the arguments, people want facts and they want to know the consequences and i tried to lay those out as clearly as i can, listening to our friends, countries that wish us well. it is a good thing to do. as for the american elections, comments in recent weeks, now is not a moment to add to the more subtract from them but as the prime minister has been through two general elections you always look on at the us election in our of the scale of the process and the length of the process and i am honored by anyone left standing. >> we are term limited.
9:39 am
so i too can look in are at the process. >> another question from the bbc. >> you made your views very plain that british voters should stay in the e.u. but in the interest of goods friends being on it are you also saying our decades old special relationship has been through so much would be fundamentally damaged and changed by our exit? if so how? are you also -- do you have any sympathy with those who say this is none of your business? some of your colleagues believe it utterly wrong that you have dragged our closest ally into the campaign. what do you think then? is it appropriate for boris johnson to have brought out president obama's canyon ancestry in the context of this?
9:40 am
>> let me go first. questions for boris are not questions for me. i don't have a special power over the president of the united states. barack feel strongly about this and said what he said and it is our decision is a sovereign people, the choice we make about europe, it is right to listen to and consider the advice of your friend. to amplify one of the points barack mays, we have a shared interest in making sure europe takes a robust approach to russian aggression and if you take the issues of the sanctions we put in place through the european union, i think i can put my hand on my heart and say britain played a role and
9:41 am
continues to play a role in making sure those sanctions are put in place and kept in place. not sure it would have happened if we weren't there. it is in our interest and it is in our interest to be strong against oppression. how can it be in our interests not to be at the table and to see those sanctions not take place. it has been working between britain and the united states over this issue. that has helped make a big difference. the special relationship, i am passionate about this, i believe it very deeply, the history and language and culture in the future of our country and the truth is a stronger britain and a stronger america, a stronger relationship. i want britain to be as strong as possible but i want to drive our strengths as a country. amazing armed forces, brilliant security, discussing how well they work together.
9:42 am
incredibly talented people, the fact that we are members of nato, but we also draw strength and project strength and protect our people who make our country wealthier, our people wealthier by being in the european union. i want britain to be a strong as possible. the stronger britain is the stronger that special relationship is and the more we can get done together to make sure we have a world to promote peace and human rights and the development we want to see in the rest of the world. stronger britain, stronger special relationship is in our interests and the interests of the united states of america as well. >> let me start with winston churchill. i don't know if people are aware of this but on the second floor,
9:43 am
my office, my private office is called the tree. right outside the door of the treaty room so that i see it every day including weekends when i am going into that office to watch a basketball game, the primary image i see is a bust of winston churchill. it is there voluntarily. i could do anything on that side of the floor. i love winston churchill. i love the guy. when i was elected president of the united states my predecessor kept a churchill bust in the oval office. there are only so many tables
9:44 am
you can put busts or it starts to look like clutter. and i thought it was appropriate and i suspect most people in the united kingdom might agree, the first african-american president, it might be appropriate to have a bust of doctor martin luther king in my office to remind me of all the hard work of a lot of people that would somehow allow me to have the privilege of holding this office. that is just on churchill. i think people should know that. you know my thinking there. with respect to the special relationship i have a staff member who will not be named because it might embarrass her a
9:45 am
little bit who generally on foreign trips does not leave the hotel or staff room because she is constantly doing work making this happen. she had one request the entire time i have been president, that is could she accompany me to windsor on the off chance that she might get a peek at her majesty the queen. gracious as she is, her majesty actually had this person along with a couple of others lined up so that as we emerged from lunch, they could say hello. this staff person who is a tough as they come almost fainted. i am glad she didn't because it would have caused an incident.
9:46 am
that is the special relationship. we are so bound together that nothing is going to impact the emotional, cultural and intellectual relationship between our two countries. so i don't come here suggesting in any way that that is impacted by the people of the united kingdom may make around whether or not they are members of the european union. that will continue. hopefully eternally. the cooperation and all sorts of ways through nato, through g7, g 20, all those things. as david said, if one of our
9:47 am
best friends is in an organization that enhances their power and enhances their economy i want them to stay in it, or at least -- this makes you guys bigger players, it helps your economy, to create jobs and so ultimately it is your decision but precisely because we are bound at the hip i want you to know that before you make your decision. margaret brennan. >> thank you very much. mister president, vladimir putin hasn't stopped assad as we believed he would end the cease-fire appears to be falling apart. will you continue to bet on what
9:48 am
appears to be a losing strategy? mister prime minister, the uk today wanted citizens traveling to north carolina and mississippi about laws there that affects transgender individuals. as a friend, what do you think of those laws? would you like to weigh in on that? and prince, all of us back in the us, prince passed away, you were a can you tell us the view of him? >> i am trying to figure out which order to do this. maybe i will start with north carolina and mississippi. i want everybody in the united kingdom to know the people of north carolina and mississippi are wonderful people, hospitable people, beautiful states and you
9:49 am
are welcome, you should come and enjoy your self and you will be treated with extraordinary hospitality. i also think the laws that have been passed there are wrong and should be overturned. they are in response to politics in part, some strong emotions generated by people, some of whom are good people but i just disagree with when it comes to respecting the equal rights of all people regardless of sexual orientation, transgender, gay or lesbian. although i respect their different viewpoints, that anybody is treated differently. i think it is fair to say we are not unique among countries where
9:50 am
particularly under a federal system where power is dispersed that there are going to be some localities, local officials put forward laws that are not reflective of the national consensus. if you guys come to north carolina you will be treated well. the second question with respect to syria i am deeply concerned about the cessation of hostilities, whether it is sustainable. keep in mind i have always been skeptical about vladimir putin's actions and motives inside syria. he is, along with the ran, the preeminent actor in a murderous regime and i do not believe can regain within his country.
9:51 am
having said that, i also believe we cannot end the crisis in syria without political negotiations without getting all the parties around the table around the transition plan and that means there will be some people on one side who i deeply disagree with and whose actions i deeply a poor. that is how often times you resolve conflicts like this that have taken an enormous toll, the cessation of hostilities held longer than expected and for seven weeks we see significant reduction in violence and that
9:52 am
gave some relief, i talked to vladimir putin to reinforce to him the importance of us trying to maintain cessation of hostilities, putting more pressure on the outside indicating to him we will continue to try to get the moderate opposition to stay at the negotiating table in geneva. this has always been hard and it will continue to be hard and what david and i discussed in our meeting was we will continue to prosecute the war against daesch or isil and we will fight those fighters and continue to target them and make progress, but we won't solve the overall problem with the political
9:53 am
track. we have looked at all options, none of them are great. so we are going to play this option out. if the cessation falls apart we will put it back together again even as we continue to go after isil. it is in my belief that ultimately russia will recognize that just as this can't be solved by a military victory on the part of those we support, russia may be able to keep the lid alongside he ran for a wild but if you don't have a legitimate government that will be bled as well. that is not speculation on my part, the evidence all points in
9:54 am
that direction. i love prince because he put out great music and was a great performer. he performed at the white house last year and was extraordinary. creative and original and full of energy and it is a remarkable loss, the us ambassador's residence, has a turntable, and played purple rain and delirious to get warmed up before an important bilateral meeting. >> great music, a lot of
9:55 am
brilliant talent. i have been to north carolina many years ago and enjoyed it but not yet made it to mississippi but one day i hope to. to give advice on travel, it deals with situations as they are and give advice fashionably and partially but it is important that it doesn't, something that not a lot of attention is given to. our view is we should be using lots an end discrimination rather than enhance it and that is something we are saying to countries and friends anywhere in the world. laws being passed, we make our own views about the importance of ending discrimination and we made some important steps forward which we are proud of. with that. >> thank you very much, everybody.
9:56 am
>> i will take this away. >> all right, there you have it. president obama and british prime ministers david cameron holding a joint news conference following a meeting early this morning talking about their strategy to combat isis and also the upcoming referendum, the discussion about whether or not the uk should exit the e.u. the president weighing in and that is being challenged by reporters as to why he is weighing in on it, the president making the case that the e.u. is under strain and if the uk leaves the e.u. they will be back of the line on future trade agreements between the us and europe. we are watching this intently. >> let me give you my favorite quotes from reporter. wanted to you have any sympathy for people who think this is none of your business? can you imagine a reporter
