    The EU not only actively brings in migrants and asylum seekers from the Mediterranean and through refugee quotas, but it also makes it easier for terrorists to move around through Schengen (that's how one of the terrorists got to France, for example) and gives migrants more possibilities to remain and seek asylum through asylum legislation.

    At best, Obama doesn't know what he is talking about, and in any case, his claim to be concerned about European security while at the same time advocating for the disastrous EU is not believable.

    Obama should keep out of every and any discussion about the UK'S membership of the European Union. America do not have to accept immigrants due to being over-ruled by the european union because they are not in it. But I believe that America allows many immigrants in to prop up obama (democrats) in seats so they could force through a majority

    He is an american president, he should focus on the politics in his own country not to be used as a endorsment for the remain camp. He has bigger and better problems at home such as
    The amount of people being killed by guns in america
    The threat of IS and home grown terror- we have this problem so we could keep dialouge with the Yanks to share the information they have on key terror suspects

    The UK leaving the EU will leave the union in a precarious state. It might precipitate the rise of eurosceptic parties throughout Europe and (while acknowledging I might be committing the slippery slope fallacy) the EU might cease to exist in its current form.

    The president of the United States will have a very keen interest in what happens to the EU in the next few years, especially supporters of TTIP.

    Firstly, whether or not the UK will still be a member of the EU will be decided by June.

    Secondly, I merely used TTIP as an example of European politics being inextricably tied to the US. You would be a moron to think that the US is not interested in what happens to it's closest military and political allies. TTIP itself is unlikely to go ahead since all presidential candidates have spoken out against it.

    Thirdly, I do not believe that Trump will become president. He has alienated a significant proportion of the electorate from moderate Republicans to ethnic minorities.

    Obama is only saying this because he wants Europeans to believe he is on their side despite backing remain. He would never have made a statement against how this mass migration is being handled in a different context. In fact, he has said that Merkel is "on the right side of history".
    However, to people who understand the role that the EU has played in the migration, and more recently in the negotiations with Turkey, it is painfully evident that his are empty works. At most a tactical sacrifice to ensure a remain victory.
