Obama: Post-Brexit trade deal with US could take 10 years

Source: BBC

In a recent BBC article, they have stated the following:

”The UK could take up to 10 years to negotiate trade deals with the US if it leaves the EU, Barack Obama has said.

In an interview, the US president said: “It could be five years from now, 10 years from now before we were able to actually get something done.”

Britain would also have less influence globally if it left, he added.

His warning over UK-US trade deals has angered campaigners for leaving the EU – with Mayor of London Boris Johnson calling his comments ‘hypocritical’.”

What’s YOUR view of this? 

Who’s side are you on more, an Obama view or a Boris Johnson view? Do you think Obama has a right to voice his views in the Referendum? Could it take years to negotiate a trade deal with the US if there is a brexit?
