TRUMP: EUROPE LOSING ITS CULTURE DUE TO IMMIGRATION
BLENHEIM PALACE— Dishing up a fresh dose of chaos on his European tour, President Donald Trump arrived in Britain, where a pomp-filled welcome was overshadowed by a remark saying Europe was “losing its culture” because of immigration.
Trump, in an interview with The Sun newspaper, said he felt unwelcome in London because of protests, including plans to fly a giant balloon over Parliament on Friday that depicts him as an angry baby in a diaper.
On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the US ambassador’s residence where Trump was staying, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected on Friday.
Trump acknowledged he didn’t feel welcome in the city, and blamed that in part on Mayor Sadiq Khan, who gave protesters permission to fly the 20-foot-tall balloon depicting Trump as an angry baby.
Trump also blamed recent terrorist attacks there on Khan, who is a Muslim. The president claimed Europe is “losing its culture” because of immigration from the Middle East and Africa.
“Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a sham,” he said. “I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was and I don’t mean that in a positive way.”—
