Over the weekend, in Florida, United States President, Donald Trump spoke at a rally held in Melbourne and talked about some of the serious issues facing European countries with their open migration policies. According to the Swedish paper Aftonbladet, Trump cited Sweden as a "bad example" in this policy. Then, Trump said something very shocking, especially to the people of Sweden. "When you look at what's happening last night in Sweden – Sweden! Who would believe this? Sweden!"
The Swedish Government now wants a full explanation on what Trump meant by his statement "last night in Sweden," and referring to a "serious incident" in the Nordic country, as there was no act of terrorism that ever occurred. Could this be the second time this month that Trump has created fake news about Sweden?
While social media has light of the president's cryptic comments about the Scandinavian country, the Swedish government is not so entertained by Trump's slanderous comments. They are quite puzzled about this fake news and slander about their country and demand an explanation. Catarina Axelsson, spokesperson for the Swedish government told Swedish news agency TT that they have requested clarification on Trump' statement.
"Our embassy in Washington has been in contact with the US foreign affairs office to get clarification. We're of course wondering [what he referred to]."
"Let's see if we get an answer from the embassy."
