The only problem is that the ‘incident’ was apparently completely made up.
The President name-dropped the country in a list of places that have experienced terror attacks in the past, such as Brussels and Nice.
Speaking at a cheering rally in Florida last night, he said: ‘You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden.’
He then seemed to blame the ‘attack’ on migrants after adding: ‘Sweden! Who would believe this? Sweden! They took in large numbers, they’re having problems like they never thought possible.’
But the media and Sweden’s security service have since struggled to name any specific incident that took place on Friday.
In fact, the security service told Aftonbladet there was no change to the threat level, and former PM Carl Bildt said: ‘Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking?’
