My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2017
So to be clear it was not the fault of Fox News for reporting a now debunked fake news story, or Donald Trump's fault for then exaggerating it to make a point.Give the public a break - The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 20, 2017
Instead it is the fault of the media for doing their job to point out that the story is false.
Does that mean that all of these tweets from Sweden mocking Trump for making shit up about their country are ALSO fake?
Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound. https://t.co/XWgw8Fz7tj— Carl Bildt (@carlbildt) February 19, 2017
Pray for Sweden. They will wake up with universal healthcare. Paid parental leave. Green energy. Free daycare. Sane leaders. #swedenincident— pixeliza (@pixeliza) February 19, 2017

But see that's the thing.
After being mocked during the Bush administration for having a barely coherent, short bus riding, moron in the White House, we then had eight years of the coolest, most intelligent, leader on the planet.
During those eight years other countries looked at us with envy.
And then what happens? We end up with a guy so ill informed and stupid that he makes George W. Bush look like an intellectual giant.
