Trump at the rally on Saturday:
“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 former Prime Minister of Sweden has asked “what has Donald Trump been smoking?” after the President alluded to a mystery recent attack in the country.
Swedes reacted with general confusion after Mr Trump said “look what’s happening last night in Sweden” after listing a series of past terror attacks in Europe, during a speech at a rally in Florida.
Aftonbladet newspaper, a Swedish tabloid, listed some events that had happened in the country on that night, including police chasing a drunk driver, a man being treated for severe burns and an avalanche warning.
