"You look at what's happening last night in Sweden," Trump said at his rally. "Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible."
The president then referenced Brussels and Nice, sites of horrific terror attacks, and insisted "We've got to keep our country safe."
Sweden has one of the lowest murder rates in the world. According to statistics compiled by the United Nations, Sweden’s murder rate is five times lower than that of the United States. Last year, there were just 87 cases of lethal violence confirmed by Sweden’s official crime prevention agency.
