(NationalSentinel) President Donald J. Trump is an avid consumer of news. He watches and listens to many programs daily, reportedly, so to claim that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he mentions a topic or an issue is as naive as it is erroneous.
And yet the discredited establishment media continues to do just that. The latest pile-on involves Trump’s mention at his campaign rally in Florida on Saturday the worsening crime situation in once-peaceful Sweden.
The Swedes were quick to distance themselves from Trump’s claim, to be sure.
“We are used to seeing the president of the U.S. as one of the most well-informed persons in the world, also well aware of the importance of what he says,” Carl Bildt, a former prime minister of Sweden, said by email to The New York Times on Monday. “And then, suddenly, we see him engaging in misinformation and slander against a truly friendly country, obviously relying on sources of a quality that at best could be described as dubious.”

Riots erupted in a heavily immigrant Stockholm suburb Monday night, as masked looters set cars ablaze and threw rocks at cops, injuring one police officer, Swedish officials said.
The violence in Rinkeby began around 8 p.m., when officers arrested a suspect at an underground station on drug charges, The Local reported. A group soon gathered, hurling rocks and other objects at officers and prompting one cop to fire his gun “in a situation that demanded he use his firearm,” police spokesman Lars Bystrom said.
“But nobody has been found injured at the scene and we have checked the hospitals and there hasn’t been anyone with what could be gunshot wounds,” Bystrom added.
Trump was said to have gotten his information from an interview between Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Ami Horowitz, who has just released a documentary on the rising migrant-related crime in Sweden, whose people are so tolerant they would rather see their society destroyed than point to the fact that the quintupling of migration into the country since 1997 is causing serious problems.

The country’s prime minister, Stefan Lofven, said Monday, “Yes, we have challenges like all other countries. There’s no doubt. We have a situation in the world where 65 million people had to flee their countries last year, the year before that. 65 million. So that’s a war for us together.” He also said Sweden was investing more in housing, technology and its welfare system, Fox News reported.
