The President takes to Twitter to explaining something he said about another country.
FOX's Jon Decker reports from the White House:
President Trump tweeting last night that he had been referring to a TV report on FOX, which looked at refugees and crime in Sweden.
Addressing a campaign-style rally on Saturday, the President referenced Sweden when he listed parts of Europe hit by terrorist attacks:
(President Trump) "You look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden."
But with no such incident reported in Sweden on Friday, the country has asked the White House for an explanation.
There has not been a terror-related incident in Sweden since 2010.
At the White House, Jon Decker, FOX News.
My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.

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!

We look forward to informing the US administration about Swedish immigration and integration policies. https://t.co/x5G3euOWRh
