Swedish Columnist Backs Up Trump’s Immigration Claims


A newspaper columnist for the British conservative magazine Spectator in September of 2016 wrote how Sweden was an example of how not to handle immigrants, an article of particular interest in light of President Donald Trump’s critical comments on Sweden during a Florida rally on Motzoei Shabbos, Newsmax reports.

Trump in his speech referenced “what’s happening last night in Sweden” at his rally, a comment criticized by many, but later cleared up by a White House spokeswoman as Trump “talking about rising crime and recent incidents in general and not referring to a specific incident.”

Trump on Twitter said he was referring to a story broadcast on Fox News concerning immigrants and Sweden.
