That's misleading.  Trump referred to SOMETHING.  The biased lying MSM chose a specific classification, "terrorism", as if Trump had specifically said it.
Trump was speaking extemporaneously, which of course he has a lot of experience doing.  But nevertheless, he was vague about what had happened.  But the MSM decided to focus on the "terrorism" angle, precisely because they knew it was false:  They knew there had been no obvious 'terrorism' incident, which made it useful to misrepresent Trump's intent.

Blaming how the media gets it wrong won't help you, Razer.  

>The New York Times: " President Trump escalated his attack on Sweden's migration policies on Monday, doubling down on his suggestion — based on a Fox News report — that refugees in the Scandinavian country were behind a surge in crime and terrorism."

At least that references sounds relatively accurate:  There IS a "surge in crime" for which Muslim immigrants are obviously responsible.

Which WAS the subject he was discussing when he brought up that (also non-existent) "Crime Wave" by immigrants to Sweden

This cite is, of course, merely a single incident.

  But you need to define what YOU refer to when you mean "crime wave".
