Trump Confirms: I Get My Intel From Fox News

The Hill reports:

President Trump sought to explain his reference to a nonexistent terrorism incident in Sweden at a rally Saturday night, pointing to a story from Fox News. “My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden,” Trump tweeted Sunday.

Trump confirmed speculation that a Fox News story about immigration and crime rates that aired on Tucker Carlson’s show was the origin of his statement. The Swedish Embassy in Washington, D.C., asked the U.S. to clarify what incident Trump was referring to on Sunday.
