  • US President Donald Trump confused himself with statements about one over the weekend alleged terrorist attack in Sweden.
  • The mystery the origin of his information is ventilated.
  • Trump announced that he had a corresponding one TV Report seen.
  • The Swedes respond with amusement on social media. The Swedish government is asking for an explanation.

Donald Trump wrote on Twitter that his statement about a terrorist attack in Sweden referred to "a story about immigrants and Swedes that was broadcast on FoxNews." Trump had said at a rally in Florida on Saturday, referring to the recently failed entry bans for citizens of several Islamic countries, that the United States had to be secured.

"Look at what is happening in Germany, look at what happened in Sweden last night," Trump added and then listed attack targets such as Brussels, Nice and Paris.

Sweden calls for an explanation

The Swedish Embassy in Washington has now asked the US President for an explanation. That said a spokeswoman for the Swedish Foreign Ministry of the news agency dpa.

"We look forward to informing the US government about the Swedish immigration and integration policy," wrote the Swedish embassy on Twitter on Monday night.

"What did he smoke?"

In Sweden, the mention of the country in a series of terrorist targets had been greeted with amazement and humor. Under the hashtag #LastNightInSweden, Twitter users cheerfully exchanged information about what happened in Sweden on Friday (“Ikea cupboard set up incorrectly”, “Drunk beer, fell asleep”).

Sweden's former Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Carl Bildt reacted more surprised than amused to Trump's statements. In a tweet he asks "what Trump might have smoked".

    Anyone who reports objectively and does not spread any evaluations cannot go wrong. Unfortunately, very few media do that today. On the contrary: they themselves believe the nonsense that they - poorly researched - spread themselves ...
    Agree agree to the comment
  • Comment from Philippe Eiselen (philippe Eiselen)
    At no point does Trump say there have been terrorist attacks in Sweden ... So this is fake news.
    Agree agree to the comment
    1. answer from Reto Camenisch (Horatio)
      But then he twittered differently. Nice, Berlin and Brussels included.
      Agree agree to the comment
    2. answer from Philippe Eiselen (philippe Eiselen)
      Clearly, he is addressing the danger he claims to be caused by refugees, which, according to his information on TV, he feared for Sweden too, because he saw signs. There were indeed riots in Sweden. I'm not defending Trump here, just a bit of sobriety in the storm. It would be correct: he suggestively stirs up the threat of terrorism (and fear) for Sweden. It's just not the same. Thinking Trump stupid is dangerous.

  • Comment from Hans Haller (panasawan)
    What exactly happened to them in Sweden? - There is nothing more detailed about this in the report.
    Agree agree to the comment
    1. answer from Daniele Röthenmund ([email protected])
      Nothing at all that's great. But Trump could tomorrow say Switzerland has taken France and this Islamic State has conquered the first country and most of its voters would believe it. He's so smart that he only said it in the context of a terrorist attack. For that is how it should be understood by his disciples. The followers here are desperately trying to sell us for stupid things, see Roe & Urbiz.
