President Kick-A$$ Tells UK Leader Cameron: I'm Not Out to Wreck BP
Last week he was looking to kick some BP a$$.
But, this weekend President Kick-A$$ told British Prime Minister Cameron that he was not out to wreck the oil giant.
The Telegraph reported:
Downing Street said the 30-minute phone call between the Prime Minister and the US President had been “warm and amicable” in a clear effort to ease tensions in the wake of recent anti-British rhetoric from the US over the leak.
A No 10 spokeswoman said: “President Obama said to the Prime Minister that his unequivocal view was that BP was a multinational global company and that frustrations about the oil spill had nothing to do with national identity.”
Mr Cameron, meanwhile “stressed the economic importance of BP to the UK, US and other countries,” the spokeswoman added.
Mr Cameron has attracted some criticism for not taking a more supportive line to the under-fire company in recent days.
The spokeswoman said: “The President made it clear he had no interests in undermining BP’s value.”
BP stocks tumbled 15% on June 1 after the Obama Administration announced that they would investigate BP for yet to be determined crimes.
