If you trust the media in Sweden, now that’s not everyone in America, this past Friday night wasn’t newsworthy. The big headlines that night consisted of big problems, international issues, such as a Swedish singer having technical problems during a musical competition.
But if you believe President Trump over Swedish news media, something explosive happened in Sweden on Friday. Nobody knows what this event is, but we should all listen closely because it is probably yuge. We don’t know, nobody knows, least of all the Swedes.
During his rally in Florida on Saturday, Trump made note of several countries who have accepted multitudes of refugees and have as a result been the subject of terrorist attacks. “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?” Well, Trump has one thing right, who would believe this? Or really anything that he says.
The president went on to reference Paris, Nice, France, and Brussels, all of which have had terrorist attacks in the past two years.
A spokeswoman for the Sweden Foreign Ministry told Associated Press (AP) that they did not know of any “terror-linked major incidents” that transpired on Friday night in Sweden.
Trump tried to clean up the mess later via Twitter because come on what is another way can you apologize to the world? He clarified, saying “My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.”
The story he referenced was most likely an interview on Fox by Tucker Carlson with Ami Horowitz. Ms. Horowitz, a filmmaker, blamed refugees for crime spikes in Sweden that she says are going unreported by the authorities, who are trying to cover it all up.
A spokeswoman for the White House Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Sunday that Trump “was talking about rising crime and recent incidents in general and not referring to a specific incident.”
Swede’s took to the internet on Friday to post pictures of what really happened on Friday night in Sweden, using the hashtag #LastNightInSweden.
Well after all, who knows what really happened on Friday night. It seems only Trump.
