President Obama on Friday defended his controversial op-ed in a London newspaper urging the British to vote to stay in the European Union, saying he was merely offering his thoughts -- and that he didn't consider it hypocritical to do so.

"First of all, let me repeat: this is a decision for the people of the United Kingdom to make. I'm not coming here to fix any votes," Obama said in a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron, who supports staying in the EU. "I'm not casting a vote myself. I'm offering my opinion. And in democracies, everybody should want more information, not less, and you shouldn't be afraid to hear an argument being made. That's not a threat."
