People in Sweden have been scratching their heads since he suggested during a rally that some sort of incident had occurred in their country.
Trump then tweeted on Sunday that he was referring to something he saw on television.
The president might be referring to a segment aired on Friday night on the Fox News Channel show Tucker Carlson Tonight that reported Sweden had accepted more than 160,000 asylum-seekers last year but that only 500 of the migrants had found jobs in Sweden.
My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2017
The report went on to say that a surge in violence had followed.
