Was Donald Trump right all along about Sweden’s crime and immigration problems?

Just over six weeks after Donald Trump was mocked across the world for suggesting that Sweden was the victim of a terror attack, at least three people have been left dead when a hijacked truck ploughed into pedestrians.

The American president’s proclaimed attack – which turned out to be fictitious – was linked to high levels of immigration and rising levels of crime in the country he said, later clarifying that he had based his comments on a Fox News report.

He was immediately ridiculed, with Carl Bildt, the former Swedish Prime Minister asking “what has he been smoking?” and the country’s US embassy appeared to mock him on Twitter.
