Trump Cites Non-Existent Sweden Attack

At his campaign-style rally on Saturday, President Donald Trump cited a non-existent attack in Sweden in an effort to bolster his argument against taking in refugees. “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,” Trump said. “Sweden, who would believe this?” Trump was likely referring to a Fox News segment the night before which discussed allegations of increased crime tied to refugees. On Twitter, former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt wrote: “Sweden? Terror attack? What he he been smoking? Questions abound.”
