WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump and Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy told journalists on Tuesday they opposed a referendum in Spain’s Catalonia region scheduled for this weekend, which the Spanish government has tried to thwart. “I’m just for a united Spain,” said Trump, who cast doubt on polling data predicting a ‘yes’ vote for independence will win. “I really think the people of Catalonia would stay with Spain. I think it would be foolish not to.”
