SEATTLE - US President Barack Obama said on Thursday that Europe was still in a difficult place economically in part because it did not take some of the steps the United States did.

Addressing about 70 people at a fundraiser in Seattle, Obama said Europe's troubles were among the headwinds that could affect US growth, also mentioning high gasoline prices as a potential economic drag.
