@MathWolf, I was referring to Trump's statement, reproduced below:
"When you look at what’s happening in Germany, when you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden - Sweden! Who would believe this? 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," Trump said, according to Business Insider.

Wally Balls reads this and says, Trump made up a Terrorist attack.
The key imprecise phrase: "what's happening last night in Sweden - Sweden!"
According to the article that Wally Ball's alt Scratch shared in a parallel thread, Trump said something, and Sweden officials asked for clarification and waited for a response.
While responsible adults are waiting for a response and clarification to the imprecise phrase, Wally Balls 1) posts a commentary about deplorable people from his main Account and proceeds to 2) make up fake news by saying "Drumpf invented a Swedish terrorist attack in a speech", and 3) criticize other people for throwing out "Fake News" claims.
The crux of my primary argument is that you cannot have a rational conversation that makes up facts in their head.
As a secondary point, there are reports that rape reports are up 16% year over year in Sweden, there are a dozen "no-go" zones in Sweden that police officials do not go to for reasons of safety, A riot subsequently erupted within one of these no-go zones.
I'm willing and open to a debate about the veracity of these reports. But I also think it needs to be discussed if Sweden has side effects to admitting so many migrants. I am not saying that Sweden shouldn't have accepted the migrants, I am saying that they should accept them with eyes-wide-open and know what they're getting. On the whole greater good theory (that I'm loosely paraphrasing and imprecisely applying), I'm sure as a human society we are better off when you sum up all of the good and bad resulting from Sweden accepting migrants.
The allegations state that police are not even allowed to document if immigrants are being reported committing crimes. This is not an eye-wide-open approach to understanding what is happening, but its simpler to call people full of BS and slap a (bad-word)-phobic label on them when they just want to have the facts about what is happening.
Finally, I really doubt I subscribe to the xenophobic narrative you accuse me of having. I have personally opened my home to refugees, starting the process to assist refugees start their settlement in America. However, due to overwhelming complexity, administrative burden, political unwillingness, etc. it was way too much work for me to officially accept a refugee family into my own home. I called my political representatives, expressed my dismay that I could not even offer my home to refugees because of their policies, and instead made a sizeable monetary contribution to a refugee organization that hosts refugees and additionally purchased a whole starter-kit of housewares (blankets, plates, silverware, pots/pans, etc.) for a refugee family.
This isn't the: 'I have a black friend and thus am not racist' argument. I truly believe it is a tragedy that so many people are giving up their own lives and life in their own country, braving walks through the desert or open sea crossings in overcrowded "boats" simply to have a chance at a different life. It broke my heart, when I held a photograph of an elderly couple that was found within a Spanish bible that was found in the desert near the US-Mexico border. The fate of the owner of the photograph and the bible is unknown, but those possessions must have been some of their most prized possessions. They selected them to accompany them on a treacherous crossing of a desert. For one reason or the other, they became separated from their most prized possessions, forever losing them and likely the only tangible reminder of the loved ones in the photograph.
But my support of refugees and immigrants doesn't mean that I don't get to know what accepting them means for my society.
