A year after one of his many gaffes, Trump is still claiming he’s right, though that shouldn’t surprise anyone.
What gaffe, you ask? Because there have been a shit ton.
That one involving Sweden and their “problem” with immigration. Yes, he is still on about that particular bullshit.
In a news conference Tuesday with Sweden’s Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, a Swedish reporter asked Trump:
“Now that you spend some time with our prime minister, how do you view Sweden, in general? What is your take? And also on our immigration politics?”
Trump, in his great lunacy, replied:
“Certainly you have a problem with the immigration. It’s caused problems in Sweden. I was one of the first ones to say it. I took a little heat, but that was okay, because I proved to be right.”
Uh, no you didn’t.
Trump referenced remarks he made at a rally in Melbourne, FL last year in February. He was just as wrong then as he is now, but apparently, he still isn’t ready to admit that. At the rally he stated:
“You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”
Since nothing happened the previous night in Sweden, everyone was very confused. Trump tweeted about it (of course):
My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.

Because everything on Fox News is the ABSOLUTE truth!
A month after this happened, Trump changed his story and said that there was a specific event that backed up his statement at the rally. The problem was that it occurred in the future, which he told Time magazine about during an interview:
“I talked about Sweden, and may have been somewhat different, but the following day, two days later, they had a massive riot in Sweden, exactly what I was talking about. I was right about that.”
The Time interviewer pointed out the discrepancies in both statements, but Trump stuck to his guns. He insisted he was referring to a riot that occurred two days after the rally and was in a predominantly immigrant neighborhood in the northern suburbs of Stockholm.
And a year later, he still says he was right. Personally, I’m surprised that he isn’t claiming he’s psychic now.
