The most disputed President of the United States Of America, Donald Trump has swallowed the internet whole. Open any website, any page, anywhere on the web, and Trump is there. But, even after getting 'over covered' by mainstream media agencies, Trump might not be entirely satisfied with the propaganda. Else, what could force him to say during his rally in Florida on Saturday that 'Sweden has suffered the act of terror'.
Following this, the Swedish Embassy has officially asked State Department and Trump administration to elaborate on this, and explain further President Trump's claim that Sweden suffered an act of terror last night.
Very soon, it all turned into a tweet, and opinion storm on the internet. Let's have a look at the complete story.
President Trump said, "you look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's going on in Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden."
He further added, "They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible."
One of the nations recognised Twitter handle, managed by a different citizen each week, responded with bafflement. Its current leader, a school librarian, said: "Nothing has happened here in Sweden. There have not been any terrorist attacks here. At all!"
Many such tweets were posted aimed at the White House to answer and elaborate on what forced Trump to say those words about Sweden.
He added in his Tweet, "NOT BOLD PREDICTION: WH staff will present some random crime in Sweden last night as a 'terror attack' rather than admit Trump effed up."
POTUS, Trump had been talking about a portion of the Fox News show 'Tucker Carlson Tonight', which investigated an alleged growth in crime following Sweden's admission of a substantial number of immigrants from the Middle East and Africa.
Sweden's Security Police also said their terror warning level had not changed recently, because "Nothing has occurred which would cause us to raise that level."
Swedish foreign ministry spokeswoman Catarina Axelsson gave a statement that "We have asked the question today to the state department. We are trying to get clarity."
Although, Trump's this tweet hasn't changed anything related to the hype which his statements have created. And people are still criticising him on social media platforms.
Sweden, which has a community of around 9.5 million, has let in nearly 200,000 immigrants in answer to the stream of shelter seekers landing in Europe that topped during the summer of 2015. The liberal policy, which has proved questionable, means the Scandinavian country has taken in more immigrants per capita than any other European country.
As Trump administration has not replied publically/officially to these reactions.
That's all, folks!
