“I think given what has happened, the president is going to try to do both at the same time. He knows how to multitask,” Kerry said at a conference in Aspen, Colorado, when asked about Obama’s April comment that the United States would focus on a wider trade deal with the EU and Britain would go to the “back of the queue” if it voted to leave the EU as it did on Thursday.
