Trump stands by 'culture' criticism of European immigration

Trump Says Europe Is 'Losing Its Culture' Due to Immigration

Trump, who campaigned on building a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border and a Muslim travel ban that morphed into one on multiple countries, said before a step up in migration Europe 'never had difficulty, never had problems'.

At a joint press conference at the Prime Minister's Chequers residence in Buckinghamshire on Friday, the President was pressed by reporters on comments he made about migrants contributing to an erosion of British and European identity.

Trump interview with Mueller "further away" ACLU calls for Trump officials to hand over info on immigrant children Kushner to join Pompeo for meetings with Mexican leaders MORE on Friday warned that European countries "better watch themselves" over allowing an influx of immigrants, adding that free-flowing immigration has been bad for Europe and bad for the U.S. But he reiterated his belief that Europe's decision to accept migrants from Middle Eastern and African countries is "a very negative thing for Europe".

Trump continued: "It's a very sad situation".

"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", Trump said. "We see them... a lot".

"I think you are losing your culture", he said. "But I think that's very much hurt Germany". Across Germany and much of Western Europe, fear of terrorism has led to a tightening of security measures, including concrete barriers in public places, and bulletproof glass around tourist attractions.

During a news conference with British Prime Minster Theresa May, Trump backtracked on the criticism of May that he made in an explosive interview released as he began his visit to the country.

Telling British and American reporters gathered in the garden at her countryside residence that the United Kingdom "has a proud history of welcoming people" and that immigration has been good for the country. "We have a proud history of welcoming people who want to come to our country to contribute to our economy and contribute to our society".

"That's what makes our country fantastic and great", Lieu said.

He went on to say: "They have vastly different cultures than ours".

"I dont think it's good for Europe".

"But I knew [Brexit] would happen and it did happen", President Trump added.

He drew fire from Democrats earlier this year for describing MS-13 gang members, many of them immigrants to the US, as "animals".

Times editor Francis Elliott asked Trump about his remarks to The Sun that Europe is "losing [its] culture" because of immigration. We're doing incredibly well considering we virtually don't have immigration laws - I don't even call them laws, you just walk across the border and then you're tied in a lawsuit for five years, ' Trump said.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the way the President treats London and Khan was "without precedent and quite unreasonable".

He went on: "When a bad incident happened... then surely you should recognise that the police and community have a job to do and what Sadiq has sought to do is bring people together in unity to keep London together, just as happened after 7/7 all those years ago".
