President Trump's belief that immigration is "changing [the] culture" of Europe is wrong, the European Union's ambassador to the United States said Friday.
"Europe is not going to become a Muslim continent any time soon," Ambassador David O'Sullivan said at the Aspen Security Forum. "This is not an issue in Europe."
Trump expressed that worry repeatedly during his recent trip to the United Kingdom, when he lamented to British media that Europe is "losing its culture" due to an influx of refugees and illegal immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East. Those comments led to a public disagreement with British Prime Minister Theresa May during their joint press conference, when the two leaders addressed a topic that has strained diplomatic relations within the European Union.
