At a rally on Feb. 18 U.S. President Donald Trump said, “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany; you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?”
Immediately, the commentariat assumed he was making reference to a non-existent terror attack in Sweden and the mockery began. It turns out he was making reference to an interview about Sweden that he’d seen the previous night on Fox News, which raised stark concerns about the lack of integration of the large number of migrants – mainly from Muslim countries.
National Post columnist Matthew Fisher has visited Sweden dozens of times over the last few decades and recently penned a column, Trump was wrong on the details, but right about ‘problems’ in Sweden, on the transformation he’s seen.
He thinks Canadians might be a little naïve to think we are going to be immune from the same challenges.
