Swedish people have taken to social media to express their confusion over President Donald Trump's allusion to a terror attack in their country that didn't actually happen.

"You look at what's happening," Trump told the crowd at a campaign-like rally in Melbourne, Florida on Saturday night. "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? Sweden," the president continued. "They took in large numbers. They're having problems like the never thought possible. You look 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."
