President Donald Trump’s wording may have been unclear – but the problem he was addressing is a serious one.
On Sunday, Trump attracted mockery following a speech he gave in Florida in which he referenced an incident that occurred “last night in Sweden” while warning against the consequences of mass refugee migration.
As it turns out (and as we speculated in a piece yesterday), Trump was referencing a report on Tucker Carlson about mass Muslim migration in Sweden.
My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.

Sweden then attempted to troll Trump, telling him that they looked forward to informing us about Swedish immigration and integration policies.
We look forward to informing the US administration about Swedish immigration and integration policies. https://t.co/x5G3euOWRh

Well, instead of “informing” us, why don’t they answer a few questions: such as how they explain the simultaneous move towards a policy of mass Muslim migration from the third world, and an explosion in crime?
As the Gatestone Institute reminds us: In 1975, the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the former homogeneous Sweden into a multicultural country. Forty years later the dramatic consequences of this experiment emerge: violent crime has increased by 300 percent.
If one looks at the number of rapes, however, the increase is even worse. In 1975, 421 rapes were reported to the police; in 2014, it was 6,620. That is an increase of 1,472 percent.
Sweden is now number two on the global list of rape countries. According to a survey from 2010, Sweden, with 53.2 rapes per 100,000 inhabitants, is surpassed only by tiny Lesotho in Southern Africa, with 91.6 rapes per 100,000 inhabitants.
A coincidence? Not given that most perpetrators of rape in Sweden are foreign-born.
And the figures are only trending upward….
So this isn’t a problem, simply because it didn’t happen “last night?”
