U.S. President Barack Obama said Friday he wants Britain to stay in the European Union, in a wide-ranging interview in which he also discussed gay rights and his regret over not tackling gun violence in the States."President Obama is wrong about the U.K. and the EU," John Redwood, a lawmaker from Cameron's Conservative Party, said on his website. He accused Obama of lecturing Britain. The first sitting U.S. president to visit Kenya, Obama will also be visiting his ancestral homeland as he attends a business summit and has meetings with President Uhuru Kenyatta. Obama's late father was from Kenya, and in the interview, Obama cited his relatives still in Kenya to argue he knows how the country's history of mistreating women and girls has held Kenya back.A number of Kenyan politicians and religious leaders have warned Obama that any overtures on gay rights would not be welcomed in Kenya, where gay sex is punishable by up to 14 years in prison.After his visit to Kenya, Obama will fly Sunday to Ethiopia, also becoming the first U.S. president to travel there.
