Trump says UK is “losing its culture” due to migrant influx, May praises migrants’ “fantastic contribution”

One of them is living in a fantasy world, and one of them is working on the plane of reality.

“Theresa May praises the ‘fantastic contribution’ made by immigrants as she dismisses Trump’s claims Britain is ‘losing its culture’ because of the influx,” by Iain Burns and Kate Ferguson, Mailonline, July 13, 2018:
Theresa May today hit back at Donald Trump’s incendiary warning Britain is ‘losing its culture’ because of immigration.
The Prime Minister said that immigrants from all over the world have made a ‘fantastic contribution’ to life in the UK.
Although she also stressed that Britain will end free movement when the country quits the European Union.
Mr Trump has sent the Special Relationship into meltdown by trashing the PM’s Brexit plans which he said killed off hopes of a transatlantic trade deal.
And he said warned Britain – and the rest of Europe – is ‘losing its culture’ by allowing ‘millions and millions’ of people to move in.
In a firm slap down this morning, he PM’s official spokeswoman made it clear Mrs May does not share his view.
She said: ‘On immigration, we have always said that people from all over the world have come here and made this country what it is and we welcome their contribution.
‘Britain is one of the best countries in the world to come and live – but at the same time we want to put in place a system which ensures we have control of our borders and that is what we are going to do later this year.
‘But let’s be clear, this is a country where people come from all over the world and make a fantastic contribution.’
Mr Trump has rocked Westminster by giving an astonishing interview to The Sun lashing the PM policies on Brexit, immigration and her negotiating style.
On immigration, 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.
‘So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad.
‘I think you are losing your culture. Look around. You go through certain areas that didn’t exist ten or 15 years ago.’
Speaking to The Sun in Brussels before coming to Britain yesterday, Mr Trump said: ‘I think what has happened to Europe is a shame.
‘Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame.
He also said that crime was being ‘brought in’ to London and criticised Sadiq Khan – with whom he has clashed several times already – over his failure to prevent it….
