President Trump held a rally last weekend to garner support for his immigration policies and he told the crowd, “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.” People were confused by his imprecise reference to Sweden, and he was ridiculed on social media. He later tweeted that he was referring to a news report that he saw on Fox News that revealed Sweden’s migrant problems.
