Swedes scratch heads at Trump's suggestion of major incident

 Swedes have been scratching their heads and ridiculing President Donald Trump's remark that suggested a major incident had happened in Sweden.   

During a rally in Florida on Saturday, Trump said ``look what's happening last night in Sweden'' as he alluded to past terror attacks in Europe.

The comment has prompted a barrage of social media reaction on Sunday.

Former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt tweeted , ``Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound.''    

Aftonbladet newspaper listed in English some events that had happened Friday in Sweden, including a man being treated for severe burns, an avalanche warning and police chasing a drunken driver.

One Twitter user posted a mock Ikea instruction manual on how to build a ``Border Wall,'' saying the pieces had sold out.
