President Donald Trump referred to what’s happening in Sweden with their refugees and the liberal media did their best to blow it out of proportion and twist it into a reference about a terrorist attack that never happened. Now Trump is addressing the issue with the media.
President Trump isn’t backing off his remarks about Sweden’s refugee troubles, accusing the news media Monday of being the ones who got the story wrong.
A cryptic statement about Sweden during a Saturday speech made the president a target for scorn and ridicule, but Mr. Trump has insisted that Sweden is a prime example of the dangers posed by an open-door refugee policy.
“Give the public a break — The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!” tweeted Mr. Trump.
It was the second time he took to Twitter to defend his remark about Sweden during the campaign-style rally in Melbourne, Florida, including the Scandinavian country in a list of European nations that he said suffered after welcoming large numbers of refugees from the Middle East.
