LONDON (AP) — U.S. President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May are expressing differing views on the benefits of immigration to Europe.

Trump says during a joint news conference that immigration has been “very bad” for Europe and is changing the culture of the continent.

May says the United Kingdom has a “proud history” of welcoming people to its country, and immigration has been “good” for the U.K.

May says people of different backgrounds have contributed to her country’s society, but it’s important to have a “set of rules” when it comes to immigration.

The two leaders were asked about Trump’s interview with The Sun newspaper in which he argued that Europe is “losing its culture” because of immigration.
