LONDON (Sputnik) — US President Barack Obama is the most anti-UK US leader ever, UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said on Friday, as Obama is expected to show support for the Remain campaign during upcoming visit to the United Kingdom.

"Mercifully, this American president, who is the most anti-British American president there has ever been, won’t be in office for much longer, and I hope will be replaced by somebody rather more sensible when it comes to trading relationships with this country," Farage said as quoted by local media.
