He referred to a supposed event that happened in Sweden last night
Donald Trump appeared to make up a fake Swedish terror attack last night at a rally in Florida.
During the rally, he spoke about how the White House plans to renew its efforts to restrict immigration. Trump then went on to cite several European countries and cities saying that they've showed the dangers of admitting immigrants.
During his speech he said "You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden."
He continued by saying "They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible."

His statement has left many people in Sweden scratching their heads as he seemed to suggest that the country was under attack by terrorists.
Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt chimed in on the situation asking what exactly Trump was talking about. Chelsea Clinton even commented on Trump's strange statement.
Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound. https://t.co/XWgw8Fz7tj— Carl Bildt (@carlbildt) February 19, 2017
What happened in Sweden Friday night? Did they catch the Bowling Green Massacre perpetrators?— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) February 19, 2017
Many have speculated that Trump could have been referring to a segment on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," on Fox News which explored an alleged rise in crime following Sweden’s admission of a large number of refugees from Africa and the Middle East.
