(KGTV) — It's not the first time and likely won't be the last, but words spoken by the U.S. President are raising eyebrows Sunday simply because nobody knows what Trump is talking about. 

Was the #SwedenIncident the act of Al-Ikea, a tweet asked

--During a rally yesterday in Florida, Trump said this to his followers: 

"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. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what's happening in Brussels. You look at what's happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris." 

But there was no incident on Friday in Sweden involving a terror attack.

The former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt responded to Trump's reference on Twitter:

Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton couldn't help herself:

 

Trump's special counselor Kellyanne Conway, recently lambasted for her unabashed public endorsement of First Daughter Ivanka Trump's fashion line live on Fox News, similarly made reference to the Bowling Green Massacre that also never occurred. 

It's an interesting distraction from very bad real news for the Trump Administration last week. 

Here what else is going on: 

Rush Limbaugh on the media: "They can't destroy [Trump]"

--After Trump's unprecedented attack on the Press when he called it the "enemies of the Public," Rush Limbaugh seemed to take the side of the president  Sunday during an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace saying, "I think that there's something to it." 

Limbaugh said: 

"They're enemies of Trump, and Trump won the election on substance. Trump did more interviews, he explained his agenda more than any political presidential candidate ever has in my memory, and he has tried to stick to it as people perceive it. And this effort to stop him, this is what people conclude -- anti-American, anti-this. It clearly is anti-Trump." 

V.P. Pence visits Dachau 

--U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife laid a white flower wreath at the International Monument, a jagged sculpture that evokes human figures attempting to escape barbed wires. His visit was meant to be a public show of remembrence of victims of the Holocaust.
