"I believe that the people in the UK - Scotland, Ireland, as you know I have property in Ireland, I have property all over - I think that those people they like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration".
John Rees of the Stop the War group addressed the protesters, saying of Trump: "He's a wrecking ball for race relations, he's a wrecking ball for prosperity, he's a wrecking ball for women's rights, he's a wrecking ball for any peace and justice in this world and we have to stop him".
Speaking at a press conference following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, the president said he thought the vote for Brexit was primarily due to concerns about immigration.
US President Donald Trump arrived Thursday in Britain, where he will find his own wall set up even as preparations for protests against his four-day visit are in full swing. "I think that's why they voted for Brexit".
He is due to stay overnight at the ambassador's Winfield House residence in London's Regent's Park, where demonstrators plan to play recordings of migrant children held in U.S. detention centers.

Cindy Barrientos, who was travelling with Mr Coronado, described the attacker as a homeless man with no arms to officers. Crenshaw has an extensive criminal past, including battery of law enforcement officers, according to local police.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to march through London in protest against Mr Trump's visit and some of his actions during his first 18 months in power. This despite a trip choreography created to have him spend as little time as possible in London and keep him out of sight. Vince Cable, the leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said, "Most of us don't think he is particularly good judge on Brexit or anything else".
A small demonstration is expected to take place near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday, the venue for Trump's black-tie dinner with Prime Minister Theresa May.
Asked about Trump's comments, May said: "We're delivering on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders".
This will be the US President's first official visit to the UK.
Lead guitarist Geoff Sprinks said: "We will not be anywhere near where he's going to be, it would be lovely to have played at one of the protests".
Prime Minister May said the U.S. leader " s United Kingdom visit would be an opportunity to boost trade links and strengthen co-operation on security.
The leaders will then hold talks at the PM's residence of Chequers. She will then head to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth II in the afternoon. But she also warned Trump not to ignore the "malign behaviour" of Moscow when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki next week.
