Trump lies about Sweden
Is Trump sounding like a pathological liar? Otherwise, why would he continue to lie about crimes that did not happen? As you know he has been campaigning in Florida this weekend.
There he cited a nonexistent incident in Sweden while talking about the relationship between terror attacks and refugees around the world during a rally in Melbourne, Florida, on Saturday.
"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 are having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what's happening Brussels, you look at what's happening all over the world," Trump said.
No incident occurred in Sweden on Friday night.
However, Fox News host Tucker Carlson ran an interview on Friday night's broadcast of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" with documentarian and media personality Ami Horowitz, who presented a clip from a new film documenting alleged violence committed by refugees in Sweden. The segment went on extensively about a supposed crime surge in Sweden and its links to immigrant populations.
It is highly likely that Trump being glued to Fox News more than the CNN or other more reliable media sources was referring to that documentary by Horowitz. After viewing the interview in the Fox TV, I left a comment there, which is shared below:
