I hope the more extreme Trump supporters don't call this hard work fake news and see it for the contributor to democracy that it is.

Donald Trump 'has delivered falsehood on every single one of his 33 days as President'

Just checked WP claim that they say crime in Sweden isn't up that's bollocks, it is up. So WP earns a big fat Pinocchio.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

I wouldn't trust any "fact Checker" rom the WP or NYT, or CNN or MSNBC.

Not exactly impartial.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

ABC news paints a complicated picture: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/presi...ry?id=45610077

Crime certainly isn't surging. It's gone up but in the main areas that have taken migrants it's gone down. However murder has increased across Sweden but at the same time we're dealing with small numbers so an increase of 20 might not be statistically relevant......

Quote:
Sweden has 15 suburbs with high crime rates, he said, but the recent influx of refugees doesn’t explain the problem. Rinkeby is one of these 15 areas.

“In 2015 a big number of refugees came to Sweden, and these were problem areas before that,” he told ABC News.

In fact, the number of reported crimes in those 15 areas decreased from 2014 to 2015. In 2015, 19,092 crimes were reported in those 15 areas — a decline from 19,576 in 2014. In 2012 the number of reported crimes in these areas was over 20,200, according to data from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention. Numbers for 2016 are not yet available.

Last year 112,645 violent crimes were reported in the country — an increase from 108,739 in 2015, 108,071 in 2014 and 104,738 in 2013, according to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention. Those totals include attempted murder, muggings and rape but not other types of sexual assault and murder, the council said.

In 2015 the number of murders went up to 112, from 87 the previous year. The data for 2016 have not yet been compiled, according to the council. But what these numbers don’t show is how many of the crimes were committed by asylum seekers. The statistics are based on police reports, and the reports don’t mention the suspected perpetrators’ ethnicity, citizenship or refugee status, according to the council.
Looking at those numbers I would say we're not really looking at mass problems here. Crime has gone up but it's not surging and there isn't evidence that the increase in crime is coming from areas with refugees.

If you don't believe that there are a group of powerful people, who's aim is to bring about, in the future, a word government, then we will have to agree to disagree on that one. Multinational trade deals, such as TPP and TTIP were back door methods to lay the ground work for this. Well done Mr Trump, for scrapping TPP and wanting trade deals between two independent nations.


But that second link I posted, from the guy who seems to be against many of Trumps policies, was also citing Soros as a funder of these mass protests against Trump. Do you dismiss his view as well?


"Disclaimer: I am not supporting Trump nor is this article really about Trump. Iím against the immigration ban, and I support all womenís rights regardless of what political party they belong to. With that said, I do not support corporatism."

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Yes I do not think George Soros is paying for the protests. I don't care if some randomer puts a 'disclaimer' on the internet.

Actually, I really thought the Breitbart article would be the one that really changed your mind

A politically impartial main stream press is pretty much dead.
