Trump's Swedish meatballs cause Twitter titters


Donald J.Trump’s baffling comments about Sweden and the country’s immigrant related security conundrum has seen him mocked mercilessly on his favourite social media platform,Twitter.

His “Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They are having problems like you never thought possible.” Prompted Sweden’s nonplussed government to contact the US State Department.

Trump said he saw a documentary on Fox News.

My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on FoxNews</a> concerning immigrants & Sweden.</p>— Donald J. Trump (realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2017

Let’s take a look at some of the more lighthearted tweets.

Pray for Sweden.

Traditionally Sweden has a benevolent attitude toward refugees with 163,000 accepted in 2015 and 29,000 in last year.

Another 25,000 to 45,000 are expected in the country in 2017, according to the Swedish Migration Agency.

Sweden’s crime rate has fallen since 2005, according to official statistics, despite the influx of individuals fleeing war and persecution.
