Again, a places that has a high minority population doesn't mean it's unsafe. The U.S is a good 20%-30% more nonwhite than Europe and theirs plenty of areas that are majority minority that are plenty safe, hell the entire States of Texas, California, Nevada, Hawaii and New Mexico are majority nonwhite and not one of them is the murder capital although Texas nearly was when it was much whiter and New Mexico has a very high crime rate that for some reason doesn't correspond with an out of control murder rate. London is nowhere near it' murder rate high as many believe. Malmo literally the year after having a record-breaking 11 murders for a population of 300,000 had 5 or 6 the next year. I personally don't know the murder rate for Paris as all the data is in French, but the most dangerous countries in Europe excluding Russia are Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Which all manage to have a higher murder rate than Turkey....

The two groups with the most recorded amount of crimes per capita in the UK are shockingly: Romanians and Poles.

Amazingly more migrants come from these two countries than any other. Although their are higher Pakistani and Indian populations than Romanians these are mostly second or third generation.

So all those people you guys claimed are ruining London whether their pickpocketing or begging, they are disproportionally fellow Europeans.

Amazingly the country of Hungary has never had a year were it's murder rate has been lower than Germany, Italy, Spain or England in the last 17 or so years, and Poland is lurking roughly around England, Spain and Germany's rate of murder. Only France and Belgium have maintained a similar or higher rate than Hungary.

Essentially when you compare all the countries that have been "devastated" by Immigration it's a wash at who's murder rate is higher. Even when 94%+ White Glasgow (88% Scottish) went up against 60% White and (44% English) London, Glasgow has had the higher murder rate every year since before 2000. In fact at one point in the mid-2000s Glasgow was the murder capital of Western Europe. Someone said Germany's murder ate went up 10%, how much do you want to bet even with the 10% increase tha wasn't Germany's worst year for murder in that decade 2010-2017. In fact in 2016 when crime increased, it was followed by a 10% drop in crime across Germany in 2017...

Facts.

They won't change many views.

Well to be fair,given the choice I'd rather stay in Mayfair than Battersea.
Whatever you think about Trump he does have quite a lot of experience in real estate.

Well, I just returned from my trip to Rome, San Marino, Venice, Monaco, Paris and London and I'm happy to report that all of the warnings are absolute BULLPUCKY. I walked ALL OVER these cities during my visit and I didn't see a single example of the supposed horrors that I was warned about, and I LOOKED for them. So, ignore the fear mongers and go ahead and book that vacation. You'll have a wonderful time. Just watch out for those obnoxious American tourists.
I lived in Brussels from 2014 to 2017. I would hear Americans talking about what a hell hole war zone Europe has become. Meanwhile, pretty much everywhere I went was safe and friendly.

I've worked in Europe and America and almost anywhere in Europe is much, much, much safer than almost any major city or even minor city in America. This is reflected in both violent and non-violent crime statistics, and in everyday experience, not to mention all the school shootings and mass shootings in the USA. Even if you look at just Muslim terrorism, the USA has been hit harder than any European country, 9/11 alone did more damage than all other terrorist attacks combined, then you also have Ft. Hood, Boston Marathon, the New York City attacks in 2017 with the van driver, Orlando, the lady being shot in Minnesota by the Somali cop (may well have been jihad-motivated some now think), the rapes of women and even little girls in places like Michigan, New Hampshire and Minnesota (just like Rotherham in England) and the San Bernardino attacks. Practically every US city is more dangerous than anywhere in Europe, even just looking at the tiny factor of terrorism, leave alone the much higher general crime rates in the US. (Not to mention the fact that most of the Muslims are having to leave Europe anyway, France's laws for example make it about impossible to practice the religion and in Germany the Syrians are being forced to leave).

Well of course they're not going to shoot a promotional travel video that reveals the reality that the English are a small minority of the people of London. Tourists aren't going to show up to a place which is majority Arab/black/indian.

People go to London because they want to see and partake of English culture and traditions, not the balkanized Middle East foreign mob with non-English clothing, language, accents, foods, customs, etc.

Europe has until very recently had a mostly ethnically and culturally homogenous cultural mix, which is not the case for the US, which has had a permanent problematic underclass by virtue of the legacy of African slavery, and in the last 50 years the balkanization from the great White Genocide programs achieved by mass immigration of non-white Third World global poor.

If Europe can really expel the Muslims, then that's a good thing. I don't have any hope it will actually succeed.

Chicago has some jaw-dropping number of shootings.

Chicago had a record 55 million overnight visitors last year. They spend enormous sums on lodging, dining, shopping, and entertainment. They have no reasons to visit the 5/25 areas where most shootings occur and don't engage with gang members and therefore, don't get shot.
