Last night Donald Trump referenced Tucker Carlson’s report on Sweden and the negative impact of mass migration in that country. Sweden took in 200,000 refugees, the most per capita of any European nation. The result has been a huge increase in violent crime. The media went off the deep end, ranting against Trump. They even involved Sweden in their catastrophic telling of events.
It was easily explained by Trump but they would rather pretend all is well in Sweden.
During the rally in Florida, Donald Trump, who is loose with words, said, “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden.” He meant the report he saw on the Tucker Carlson show the night before.
The media immediately blasted Trump because, they said, nothing happened in Sweden the night before. The BBC wrote:
During another ferocious attack on the media on Saturday evening, US President Donald Trump cited a non-existent incident in Sweden, baffling many – not least Swedes.
“You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible,” the new US president told a crowd of supporters at a rally in Florida.
It was not entirely clear which incident he was referring to, as many on Twitter pointed out, including the former Swedish prime minister:
The New York Daily News ran with a what has he been smoking story. Ultra-left NY Magazine also wrote about how confused Sweden is. The entire media went wild over a nothing story. The dumb reporters at The Washington Post couldn’t figure it out either.
The media is disgusting and dishonest. They take pleasure in diminishing the President to the rest of the world. It’s Sweden they should be reporting about. They are the rape capital of Europe because of the refugees.
Trump explained in a tweet that he was referring to the Tucker Carlson report broadcast the night before. This was truly a nothing burger.
My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.

Even after he explained, the media kept it up. Mediaite wanted to know if Trump thought there was an attack in Sweden because of the Tucker Carlson show.
The President is not precise in his use of language but they know exactly what he meant.
Listen to the video account by reporter Ami Horowitz on Tucker’s show that Trump watched.
The Swedes are suicidal. Instead of worrying about what Trump said, perhaps they should look into the insane mass migration they are promoting at the expense of their citizens.
In an interesting footnote to this story, Swedes are putting up Facebook pages to jump on the Trump train.
