US President Donald Trump has denounced the fact that, according to him, the arrival of thousands of immigrants and refugees in Europe is "allowed", arguing that the Old Continent is "losing" its "culture" and "texture".

"It is a shame that immigration is allowed in Europe. "I think it changed the texture of Europe and if you do not act very quickly, it will never be what it used to be, and I do not mean that in a positive way," Trump said in an interview with the British tabloid The Sun.

"Allowing millions of people to come to Europe is very, very sad. "I think you are losing your culture." "All this migration has really changed the texture of Europe. "I speak like someone out there when I say that, but I speak like someone who loves Europe."

The real estate mogul recalled that his father was of German descent and his mother of Scottish descent.

In the same interview, the US president slammed Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, a fierce critic of him.

"You have a mayor who has done a horrible job (…) Look at the terrorism you have," said the US president. "I think he has done a very bad job with terrorism. I think he has done a bad job of crime. If you see what is happening in your hospitals in London you will understand what I mean. "With all these horrible things happening there, all this crime that has come in," he said.

Trump also accused Kahn of not appearing "hospitable" to him, while also criticizing the mobilizations organized against him in the British capital.

There is "no reason" to go to London. I used to love London as a city (…) I think your mayor has done a horrible job. "When it makes you feel unwanted, why should I stay there?" The US president asked.

"When I say this, I am talking about the government (s.s. the local government), because the people of the UK agree with me."

Apparently referring to the national football team of the country he is visiting, Trump also told the Sun newspaper that "I miss the name England. You understand that. I miss the name England. "I think the name England is a very nice name."

The Brexit agreement  

US President Donald Trump has sharply opposed the approach of British Prime Minister Theresa May in the negotiations with the European Union on Brexit in an interview given to the British tabloid newspaper The Sun.

"Well, I think the deal that is going to be concluded is not the deal that the (British) people voted for, it is not the deal that was put to the referendum" in the UK about leaving the EU, "Trump told the newspaper. .

"I told Teresa, whom I like, I told her my views on what she should do, how she should negotiate (…) I would say she probably went in the opposite direction," the Republican continued.

"This is OK, he had to negotiate in the best way he knows," but "definitely (the deal May suggested) will affect the trade deal with the US, unfortunately in a negative way," Trump added (1).

The agreement that May is preparing to conclude, maintaining close trade relations with the EU, "will probably kill" any possibility of concluding a free trade agreement between London and Washington, he explained.

"If they close this deal, we will negotiate with the European Union instead of negotiating with the UK, which will probably kill the deal," Trump told the Sun.

The comments by the real estate tycoon, made shortly before his first visit to Britain since becoming a White House resident, are published at the end of a chaotic week for May, during which two prominent members of her government submitted their resignations. in protest of its plan for the Brexit agreement with the EU, which should have been finalized long before March 2019.

Donald Trump also said in an interview with The Sun that he believed that Boris Johnson, the former British Foreign Secretary - and one of the two dissenting ministers who resigned - would become a prime minister.

"I'm not trying to get one to clash with the other," he said. "I just say that I think he would become a great prime minister (…) I think he has what he needs."

Trump assured that he considers May a "nice man", however he attacked the mayor of the British capital, Sadiq Khan, again, judging that he is doing a "horrible" job in his office.
