Trump LIES about terrorist attack in ‘Sweden’ to justify #MuslimBan

trump-florida-rallyAt his rally in Melbourne, Florida on Saturday, Pres. Donald Trump listed a terror attack that never happened as part of the rationale for his controversial anti-Muslim travel ban.

In defending his executive order banning Islamic refugees and travelers from 7 Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., Trump said, “When you look at what’s happening in Germany, when 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 like they never thought possible,” he went on.

However, there was no terror attack in Sweden on Friday.

      Yep, this was clear to me from day one.

      #45 used the media for FREE to build this MONSTER of hate and ignorance. They can use the same means to deconstruct this POS and take him OUT.

  2. Trump lies as he goes along. Bill Clinton was impeached for lying. But Trump tell lies one after another & no one blinks.

  3. Lonnie Starr says:

    Will the gov’t fight back to preserve it’s credibility or will they let him destroy theirs too? A vote of “No Confidence” would be nice coming from capitol hill and/or gov’t agencies.

    ‘Last Night in Sweden’? Trump’s Remark Baffles a Nation


    LONDON — Swedes reacted with confusion, anger and ridicule on Sunday to a vague remark by President Trump that suggested that something terrible had occurred in their country.

    During a campaign-style rally on Saturday in Florida, Mr. Trump issued a sharp if discursive attack on refugee policies in Europe, ticking off a list of places that have been hit by terrorists.

    “You look at what’s happening,” he told his supporters. “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?”

    Not the Swedes.

    Nothing particularly nefarious happened in Sweden on Friday — or Saturday, for that matter — and Swedes were left baffled.

    “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound,” Carl Bildt, a former prime minister and foreign minister, wrote on Twitter.

    Mr. Trump did not state, per se, that a terrorist attack had taken place in Sweden.

    But the context of his remarks — he mentioned Sweden right after he chastised Germany, which also took in large numbers of refugees and asylum seekers fleeing war and deprivation — clearly suggested that he thought something awful had happened.

    “Sweden,” he said. “They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”

    Contrary to Mr. Trump’s allegations, nearly all of the men involved in terrorist assaults in Paris on Nov. 13, 2015, in Brussels on March 22 last year, and in Nice, France, on July 14, were citizens of France or Belgium.

    As the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet noted, Twitter users were quick to ridicule Mr. Trump’s remark, with joking references to the Swedish Chef, the “Muppets” character; Swedish meatballs; and Ikea, the furniture giant.

    Others speculated that Mr. Trump might have been influenced by a Fox News interview of Ami Horowitz, a filmmaker who asserts that migrants in Sweden have been associated with an increase in crime, by the correspondent Tucker Carlson. “They often times try to cover up some of these crimes,” Mr. Horowitz said, arguing that those who try to tell the truth about the situation are shouted down as racists and xenophobes.

    You are just one ridiculous man. Who has no type ethics to talk about anything. Are you sure that you are OK to handle what’s coming to you.

    Definitely I see breakdown coming soon.

    of course he lied 😬😬😬😬😬

  7. nedhamson says:

    He referred to an arson a while back as an example of what the press does not cover – he was wrong about that but was counting on what he was fed – a lie. On the cuff, he mis-remembered and lied again. Neither he nor his rabid followers care about truth – just what they “feel” is right – facts don’t count with them – just feelings, hate, fear…

    • But this is the way he has operated his whole life. It’s how he obtained wealth. Lying, cheating, deceiving and bullying people. He would refuse to pay people for their work and then tie it up in court for years.

  8. Something is clearly wrong with this fraud. Unstable.
