1. Trump at NATO: “Immigration Is Taking Over Europe”
U.S. President Donald J. Trump has told press at the NATO summit on Thursday that he warned the defence union that “immigration is taking over Europe”.

Remarking on the formation of the anti-mass migration Five-Star Movement (M5S) and the League (Lega) coalition in Italy, President Trump said: 'If you look at Italy, [Prime Minister] Giuseppe [Conte] won his election on his strong immigration policies.
