President Trump said while at a rally in Florida that Sweden is having a problem with Islam.
“Mohammed, Mahmod, Ali, again and again,” Springare wrote of those arrested.
Trump explained on Twitter he was referring to a Fox News segment that aired on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” dealing with the Swedish refugee crime.
“It seems like we may be missing the point of the story, which is there has been a massive social cost associated with the refugee policies and the immigration policies of Western Europe,” Carlson said on “Fox & Friends” the following Monday.
“Fifty years of immigration policy is coming to flower in Europe. We’re not paying any attention. We’re not drawing any of the obvious lessons from it. It's not working. That's the real point here. ”
Trump tweeted again on Monday morning, blasting media outlets that failed to report on Sweden's migrant crime epidemic.
“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!” Trump wrote.
In Sweden the terror threat level is at “elevated” and police believe at least 300 Swedish nationals have traveled to Syria and Iraq for jihadi training.
Sweden has taken in 650,000 asylum-seekers during the past 15 years…mostly males.
Carlson warned this mass influx of migrants, many of whom are uneducated and jobless, has begun to alter the face – and crime rates – of countries such as Sweden.
“[The integration policy] hasn’t worked very well, at all,” Carlson said. “And it’s in the process of totally changing these ancient cultures into something different and much more volatile and much more threatening, so what are the lessons we should draw from this? That’s the conversation we should have.”
