President Trump was given a comprehensive summary of the contents of his former-national security adviser Michael Flynn’s phone calls with the Russian ambassador prior to Flynn’s resignation, a source told Fox News.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

To be fair that's Fox News' news division. They're less biased than their opinion side

He keeps banging out fake news! As others have said, is this a distraction technique to draw the fire away from other matters?

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

There was a program on Fox News about Muslim immigration into Sweden. He was almost certainly referencing that although it's not clear if he knew it wasn't a news report about a specific incident. That is what is causing the confusion.

Separately, Sweden is believed to have the highest number of Islamic State fighters per capita in Europe. About 140 of the 300 who went to Syria and Iraq have since returned, leaving the authorities to grapple with how best to reintegrate them into society.
That could be interesting.

That is exactly what he was referring to.

The following words never came out of his mouth:

"Terrorist Attack", "Incident in Sweden". But the left leaning media are crawling all over it as if he had said it, he did not and they look stupid.

He looks stupid too. It shouldn't be too much to ask of a President making a speech to structure his sentences properly. The way he said it made it sound like he was referring to 'something' happening in Sweden 'last night' and not a program he watched on Sweden last night.

Quote:
“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. Sweden, who would believe this?”
I know what he means because people have pointed it subsequently but otherwise any reading of that sentence would think he is referring to something in Sweden last night.

I've got to agree with you there. Any time he speaks he starts on something and then appears to go off on a tangent. His recent press release showed that fact admirably.

That said he appears to be getting things done but you won't hear about that in the media.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Trump's clearly not a skilled orator or a diplomat and maybe that's what a lot of Americans like about him. I don't think the media's obsession with his choice of words is going to register much with those who voted for him. In fact, rather as it did with UKIP, all the media attacks served to make them more popular.

Not to me it isn't.


Yes, it was a gaff in the way he said it, and he was rightly picked up.


But small gaff did not get in the way of the important principle he was making about the potential consequences of uncontrolled, poorly vetted immigration. He was spot on.


And focusing on a slip, rather than the important principle, seems crazy to me.
