Tucker Carlson said President Trump should be more careful with his words, but he’s correct about Sweden’s mass Muslim immigration problem.
Carlson got into a heated exchange with “The Five” co-host Bob Beckel, who said Trump lied when he spotlighted Sweden’s exponential spike in rapes, arsons, riots and assaults committed by migrant populations from the Middle East and North Africa.
“This president flat-out lied!” Beckel said (see video starting at 3:18). He was referring to the following remark Trump made while discussing the need for extreme vetting of refugees and migrants from countries known to be hotbeds of Islamic terrorism:
“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.”
The mainstream media has since ridiculed Trump for suggesting there had been an attack in Sweden on February 17 while ignoring the fact that the once crime-free country became the “rape capital of the West” shortly after they took in large numbers of refugees and migrants from Muslim-majority countries.
The Swedish media has been actively covering up Muslim crimes for years because they fear being called racist, bigoted or Islamophobic.

The press claims “nothing happened” in Sweden on Feb. 17, but police and anecdotal reports show otherwise (see below). Unfortunately, arsons and attacks on Swedish police in Muslim ghettos happen every day now.
Meanwhile, riots broke out in Rinkeby, Sweden on Feb. 20 after police arrested a Muslim drug dealer. Rinkeby is 90% Muslim, and one of Sweden’s many “no-go zones” that even cops are afraid to go into.

Carlson conceded that President Trump needs to be more precise with his language, but said his broader point — about the mass upstick in Muslim crimes, rapes and terrorist attacks in European countries that have taken in large numbers of refugees — is undeniable.
Tucker also pointed out that Trump said, “look at last night” and didn’t say there had been a terrorist attack. But Bob Beckel claims otherwise.
Trump explained on Twitter that he was referring to a Feb. 17 report he had seen on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” where documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz said the Swedish government is covering up violent crimes and rapes committed by Muslims.
Meanwhile, Twitter users (including many Swedes) backed up President Trump’s assertion that crimes have escalated in Sweden’s Muslim ghettos:
For my english readers: Donald Trump is correct – I live in an immigrant area in Sweden and it is not working well https://t.co/Cyedqcaf2l

The same cover-up is happening in England. London has a Muslim mayor who hates Trump.
