The wave of migrants from the Middle East and Africa is permanently changing Europe for the worse, the 72-year-old president argued.
And he claimed the situation pains him personally as the son of two EU countries.
Mr Trump told The Sun: “I have great love for countries in Europe.
“Don’t forget, essentially I’m a product of the European Union, between Scotland and Germany.
“Right? My father Germany, my mother Scotland.”
But he added: “I think what has happened to Europe is a shame.
“Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame.
“I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was and I don’t mean that in a positive way.
“So I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad.
“I think you are losing your culture. Look around. You go through certain areas that didn’t exist ten or 15 years ago.”
Mr Trump made tackling illegal US immigration one of the planks of his 2016 election campaign.
