EU referendum: Who cares what US wants? - Farage

The leader of the UK Independence Party, Nigel Farage, has criticised comments made by US President Barack Obama over Britain's future in the EU.

Mr Obama has said that he thinks the UK would be better off remaining within the EU, citing trade partnership deals with the US.

But speaking to the BBC, Mr Farage - who supports a vote to leave the EU - said of the US State Department: "Who cares what they want? It's what we want that matters."
