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.

Wel­come protests

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.”—
