The liberal media pounced on the story that President Donald Trump claimed there was a terrorist attack in Sweden. However, when you read the transcript, it’s not clear what he was referring to (he later clarified that he was referencing a Fox News’ Tucker Carlson segment on Sweden and crime). He said the following:
You look at what’s happening. 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. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.
Take a look at the media headlines about his remarks and their narrative:
- NBC News: During Florida rally, Trump referenced a terror attack in Sweden that never happened
- New York Times: ‘Last night in Sweden’? Trump’s remark baffles a nation
- USA Today: Trump cites (fake) attack in Sweden
