Trump Claims Sweden Attack Real, InfoWars Given as Source

Proof you can just make stuff like that up.....all the time.

More troops in Poland and more ICBMs fired off China won’t cover for Trump going full “Alex Jones” and then some.  Congrats for making the US the laughing stock of the world.

US President Donald Trump has sparked a new controversy by citing a non-existing terror attack in Sweden to promote his anti-Islamic agenda.

Speaking to a large crowd of supporters at a rally in Melbourne, Florida, on Saturday, Trump defended his entry ban against people from Muslim countries, arguing that European countries were grappling with terrorists disguised as refugees.

“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 Republican president said.

The comments baffled listeners across the world as it was not clear what incident was Trump referring to in Sweden, where no terror attack has been reported since 2013.

Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt reacted by implying that Trump had made the remarks under the influence of drugs.

In another post, he mocked Trump by showing a picture of the imaginary assailant.

Sweden’s official Twitter account, managed by a different user every week, did not identify any specific attacks either and called the remarks another “Trump fabrication.”

Other users also made fun of the apparent gaffe.

Analysts said Trump might have been referring to a documentary aired by Fox News on Friday night about refugee violence in Sweden.

“There was an absolute surge in both gun violence and rape in Sweden once they began this open-door policy,” Ami Horowitz, who made the documentary, told Fox News. The country took in large numbers of refugees in 2013.

This theory is plausible since Trump has referred to Fox News as one of the few networks he watches among the many channels that he says promote “fake news.”

Others argue that Trump has confused Sweden with Sehwan, where at least 80 people were killed in a Sufi shrine bombing on Friday.

Trump’s false claim came days after Kellyanne Conway, his top aide, made a similar gaffe by citing a non-existing attack that she dubbed as “Bowling Green massacre.”

    @ FV, Hey, Exactly this day , which Mr.Trump said to Sweden, I saw an interview on Swedish television with
    a Policeofficer ( Swedish ) from Stockholm about the horror in UPPLOPPI – RINKEBY many cars were burning.
    But myself can’ t speak Swedish. The officer show same picture about the gangs. So , Trump rightly said.
    My regards

    How can you be unaware of the violent incidents — particularly the rapes — occuring in Sweden?

    Official releases of the Swedish government do not reflect the Swedish folk, who have been protesting against the illegal, Moslem immigrants since Spring, 2016. German journalists reported in Spring 2016 that some Swedish parents had begun to carry weapons when going shopping. The deceitful stance of the Swedish gov. against Julian Assange is typical of Swedish leadership, not Swedish folk.
    The semi-autobiography of former USAF colonel, Fletcher Prouty, “The Secret Team: the CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World”, is not a Jewish fairy tale.

    Excuse me but IF Trump was talking about a terror attack in Sweden, wouldn’t he say : “look at what HAPPENED yesterday in Sweden” (or HAS HAPPENED) instead of “what’s happening” ? It sounds much more correct to me…

    And why talking about InfoWars in the title when there’s absolutely nothing about it in the text ?

    Don’t blame me….I didn’t vote.
    To all trump supporters:
    This gives me every right to complain about the mess you caused by voting for this clown, who got into office and is screwing everything up.You are responsible for what he has done. You caused the problem.
    You have no right to complain.
    America continues its fall into the long dark tea time of it soul. Trump clearly reflects the image of American body politic of the Alt Right: full of rage, hatred and xenophobia from a constant barrage of propaganda and false flags, now foaming at the mouth for America to strike back at its enemies; the enemies the zionists insist on.
    America has no moral compass, and as the rest of the world not only considers its leadership to be a laughing stock but also a very real and dangerous threat to world peace and security. A cabinet filled with persons of dubious qualities, poor character and suspect mental health.
    When will the madness end? It’s like being in the middle of a nightmare and you can’t wake up.
