Mainstream media outlets in all "57 states" went into unhinged overdrive when Trump referred to a news show which aired on Friday night, referencing what was happening in Sweden imprecisely.
The Fox news piece outlined Islamic refugee anarchy which has been taking place in Sweden.

It would appear the mainstream media (along with several celebrities and Swedish politicians) is going to be apologizing to President Trump once again.
Having spent the entire new cycle trying to ignore the immigrant crisis facing Sweden, and pin the ignorant tail on Trump, both Dagbladet and Expressen reports riots breaking out in the highly immigrant concentrated Stockholm borough of Rinkeby, Sweden with police firing warning shots as 100s of young people throw stones and burn cars.
During the evening hundreds of young people gathered in the center of Rinkeby, well known for its high concentration of immigrants and people with immigrant ancestry.
In June 2010, Rinkeby was the scene of riots and attacks against the local police station and Rinkeby is the region in which the '60 Minutes' crew were attacked in 2016.
The problems Sweden faces integrating large numbers of Muslim immigrants is a subject on which Nordstjernan columnist Ulf Nilson has written many times. His warnings of increasing radicalization among Sweden’s Muslims – warnings he started to broadcast a decade ago – now seem eerily prophetic in light of an Associated Press investigation that found Stockholm to be a breeding ground for jihadists among Swedish Somalis.
According to the AP report, which first ran Jan. 24, an al-Qaida-linked group is busy recruiting anti-government fighters among Somali youths living in Rinkeby. A suburb of Stockholm, Rinkeby has earned the nickname of “Little Mogadishu” because of the number of Somalis living there. Rinkeby is also the center of the recruiting efforts of al-Shabab, a group with ties to al-Qaida.
Rinkeby is a known problem area in Stockholm. It was here NRK journalist Anders Magnus was attacked with stones last spring, and here the police never go in the evenings without reinforcements from other patrols according to Dagbladet. A freelancer the newspaper spoke to, described the situation as serious.
Freelance Photographer Janne Åkesson has also been at the site Monday night and early Tuesday. "They threw stones at police and police fired warning shots. I got out when it was at its worst" he said to Dagbladet. He added that there were many youths with hoods and hats on.
"It was very chaotic. I have seen much in Rinkeby: they burn cars all the time - unfortunately, this was beyond the ordinary."
The alarm came to the police at 20:18 on Monday evening. A police patrol should then have been in the area for disposing of a wanted person.

The anti-American Muslim world must be wildly celebrating over this bit of chillingly prescient conduct in the heart of Manhatten, where, the Muslim call to prayer could be heard blaring out amongst liberal supporters of Islamics, who gathered to collectively dislike President Trump.
By Barry Secrest
Former president Obama referred to it as one of the "most beautiful sounds in the world," however, most non-Muslim Americans hear it as an invasively chilling chant sounded by a cult that has officially outlawed music.
It's referred to as "The Muslim Call to Prayer" and the sound of it rang out only a few blocks from the 9/11 terror attacks that took over 3500 lives, in the name of Islam and its god.

While much has been made of it by an Islamic-adoring media, the UK Daily Mail reports that only about 1,000 people showed up to declare solidarity against Trump and perhaps his supporters as well.
From The Daily Mail:
"About 1,000 people of different ethnicity and faith attended the demonstration, called 'Today, I Am A Muslim Too,' in Times Square, Manhattan.
Simmons, who previously said he has not spoken to Trump since 2015, cheekily told the crowd: 'We are here, unified, because of Donald Trump, so we won’t speak too harshly of him tonight – today.
'We want to thank him for bringing us together,' Fox News reported."
Meanwhile, the Associated Press filed this report:
"More than a thousand people of various faiths rallied in New York City in support of Muslim Americans and to protest President Donald Trump's immigration policies.
The "I Am A Muslim Too" rally was held in Times Square on Sunday and was organized by several groups, including the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding.
The protesters waved American flags, held signs saying "No Muslim Ban," and chanted "We are One."
"Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke at the peaceful rally, saying "we have to dispel the stereotypes" and that America is "a country founded to protect all faiths and all beliefs."
Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons headlined the rally. He said the Muslim community was being used as a scapegoat, but that "diversity will prevail."
However, what most of the people in attendance don't know about Islam, in their quasi-innocent gathering, is the certainty that at least one hidden truth about Islam speaks to the fact that Muslims are forbidden to take either Christians or Jews as friends.
Politifact, which tried to debunk this particular factoid, was unable to do so, due to the following translations of Quran verse 5:51, which all read as follows (while each ends up at the same factual destination):
" Quranic Arabic Corpus, a website that allows users to select passages from the Koran and compare parallel translations, offers several English translations of verse 5:51. Here are a few we found:
Saheeh International: "O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are (in fact) allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you -- then indeed, he is (one) of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people."
Arberry: "O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them. God guides not the people of the evildoers."
The Noble Qur'an: "O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust)."
The Message of The Quran says: "O you who have attained to faith! Do not take the Jews and Christians for your allies: they are but allies of one another -- and whoever of you allies himself with them becomes, verily, one of them; behold, God does not guide such evildoers."
Despite the fact that many progressives, Islamics, and interfaith respondents, have all tried to twist the meaning of this particular verse into something else altogether, this reading, among many others, and some even far worse, represent the undiscovered truth about Islam & the west.
So, while the protesting gatherers may have exhibited at least what they thought might be some bit of good intent, the truth points more towards a wavering anti-Trump movement sparked by George Soros-led pro-Islamic apologists, otherwise known as the Democrat party.
The simple fact remains, in much of the western world, that most have been painfully misled about the truth regarding the cult of Islam, and by grand design.

But, according to the media and the political left in the Trump travel ban case, deporting or banning certain nationalities of visitors from a nation was either religious persecution or racism.....

Over 39,000 people have been deported since October 2016 over visa violations and security concerns, the Saudi Gazette reported, citing unnamed interior ministry officials. As well as crimes including drug trafficking, forgery and theft, an unknown number of those removed from the country were suspected to have links to Isis and other extremist groups, the paper said.
The alleged mass deportations come after a year of strikes and other unrest in the kingdom due to unpaid wages following the oil market’s decline and subsequent blow to the Saudi economy.
Official Saudi statistics say that 243,000 Pakistanis were deported between 2012 - 2015. Mass deportations of migrant workers - which Human Rights Watch and other rights organizations say often involve illegal beatings and detainment in poor conditions - are fairly common.
2010 census figures show that 8.5 million of Saudi Arabia's 27 million strong population, or around 30 percent, are foreign nationals.
According to a 2014 European University Institute report, there are approximately 900,000 people of Pakistani nationality currently employed in Saudi Arabia’s vast construction industry and other low-paid service jobs.
In Mecca in January, dozens of expatriate workers, mostly from poor Asian and Middle Eastern countries, were beaten and jailed over public protests against unpaid salaries that turned violent.
While the Philippines and India have also seen hundreds of thousands of citizens returned home after layoffs in Saudi Arabia, the deportation of Pakistani workers has been mainly driven by security concerns, the New Arab reported.
Several prominent Saudi politicians, including Abdullah Al-Sadoun, chair of the security committee of the country’s Shura Council, have called for tougher screening processes for Pakistani nationals before they are allowed entry into the country.
“Pakistan itself is plagued with terrorism due to its close proximity with Afghanistan. The Taliban extremist movement was itself born in Pakistan,” he said.

Since 9/11, 72 individuals from the seven mostly Muslim countries covered by President Trump’s “extreme vetting” executive order have been convicted of terrorism, a finding that clashes sharply with claims from an appeals court that there is “no evidence” those countries have produced a terrorist.
According to a report out Saturday, at least 17 claimed to be refugees from those nations, three came in as “students,” and 25 eventually became U.S. citizens.
The Center for Immigration Studies calculated the numbers of convicted terrorists from the Trump Seven:
— Somalia: 20
— Yemen: 19
— Iraq: 19
— Syria: 7
— Iran: 4
— Libya: 2
— Sudan: 1
The Center’s director of policy studies, Jessica M. Vaughan, based her blockbuster report on a 2016 report from the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, that report found that 380 out of 580 people convicted in terror cases since 9/11 were foreign-born.

Weighing in on one of the most contentious issues in American politics — the danger posed to host countries by the 4.8 million people who have fled from Syria’s civil war — Syrian President Bashar Assad told Yahoo News that some of the refugees are “definitely” terrorists.
In an exclusive interview with Yahoo News at a presidential office in Damascus, Assad said President Trump’s freeze on admitting refugees from his country — part of an executive order that has drawn widespread protests and is being challenged in federal court — “is an American issue” on which he would not take sides. But asked if some of those who fled are “aligned with terrorists,” Assad quickly replied, “Definitely.”
“You can find it on the Net,” Assad went on: “Those terrorists in Syria, holding the machine gun or killing people, they [appear as] peaceful refugees in Europe or in the West.” He said he couldn’t estimate how many there might be, but he added that “you don’t need a significant number to commit atrocities.” He noted that the 9/11 attacks were pulled off by fewer than 20 terrorists “out of maybe millions of immigrants in the United States. So it’s not about the number, it’s about the quality, it’s about the intentions.”
As for the future of Syria’s 4.8 million refugees, Assad said, “For me, the priority is to bring those citizens to their country, not to help them immigrate.”
As with all interviews granted by President Bashar al-Assad, this interview was filmed by his presidential press office. No editorial changes were made to the content.
