Obama says US & UK will Remain Close Allies after Brexit

Following U.K. decision to break from the European Union, Barrack Obama, the President of the United States, has stated that the US and the United Kingdom will continue to be close allies and partners despite the outcome of the referendum. Nonetheless, the Democrats and Republicans have different views on this issue. The Democrats did not support the move by the UK to become independent. The Republicans sympathized with the fact that the UK wanted to achieve and enjoy a more sovereignty.

Speaking during a visit to Silicon Valley, Obama said that the outcome of the referendum is a clear indication of the ongoing changes and some of the challenges that result from globalization. He also revealed that, earlier on, he had invited Angela Merkel and David Cameron to discuss the referendum and Britain’s desire to break ties with the EU.

Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, said that it is the government’s primary objective to ensure that the events happening in the United Kingdom do have an adverse ripple effect on the economy and affects the working families in the America. She also opposed Donald Trump’s views about the referendum by stating that this period of uncertainty calls for all leaders to remain calm, steady, and maintain high leadership standards. She also said that this is the time that all leaders should unite and come up with ways of resolving the challenges affecting the country instead of trying to pull each other down.

A few hours after making these statements, a senior official working in the state department said that the outcome of the referendum was obviously not what either of the governments expected. However, everyone should understand that this is democracy and the decision made by U.K should be upheld. The turn of events will have an effect on the world economy, but at this moment, it is premature to tell how the world will address the issues that may crop up in future.
