British anti-Islamism campaigners held “Trump Is Right” banners as they marched in Birmingham on Saturday, as part of a protest by the relaunched Pegida UK organisation.
Trump, who is running for the US Republican nomination, has called for all Muslims to be banned from travelling to the US until the country “can figure out what is going on”. Banners were printed with his face and a link to the Pegida UK website.
Trump Hits Out at Angela Merkel, Warns of 'End of Europe'
Trump on Wednesday hit out at Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, for allowing thousands of refugees into her country. "I think Angela Merkel made a tragic mistake with the migrants," he told French conservative weekly Valeurs Actuelles.
Trump added that failing to tackle the crisis could lead to disaster for the union. "If you don't treat the situation competently and firmly, yes, it's the end of Europe. You could face real revolutions," Trump said.
On the latter position, if nowhere else, he is surprisingly close to the views of European Council President Donald Tusk, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Germany’s own President Joachim Gauck.
