UK's Cameron Refutes Walker, Denies Worry About US Leadership

By    |   Friday, 12 June 2015 09:20 PM EDT

British Prime Minister David Cameron is worried about the direction of U.S. leadership and its lead-from-behind strategy, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says – a barbed diss of President Barack Obama that Cameron flatly denies ever making, Time reports.

Speaking at Mitt Romney's annual E2 Summit in Park City, Utah, the Wisconsin governor said it's not just Cameron who's worried about America stepping back in the world. Other world leaders feel the same way, Time reports.

"I heard that from David Cameron back in February earlier when we were over at 10 Downing," Walker told summit attendees, referring to a trade visit mostly remembered for his non-answer to a question about evolution

"I heard it from other leaders around the world," the likely GOP presidential candidate told the summit. "They're looking around realizing this lead from behind mentality just doesn't work. It's just not working."

The claim got Cameron's immediate attention – and a quick response.

"The prime minister did not say that and does not think that," a spokesperson told Time.

Cameron has said he's so close to Obama that the president sometimes calls Cameron "bro." 

The Romney-led summit, where potential and announced presidential candidates will mingle and speak with prominent GOP donors and political figures, is expected to also draw Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and former CEO of HP, Carly Fiorina.
