Sweden gives Donald Trump a chance to learn about the country's immigration policy

The Swedish embassy in Washington D.C. has offered to teach US president Donald Trump about the country's immigration policies following his comments over the weekend. 

The US president caused a stir when he suggested - falsely - there had been a recent terror attack in the country linked to the numbers of refugees they had taken in.

The claim, made at a rally in Florida on Saturday night, caused a stir over social media, with the former Prime Minister, Carl Bildt, suggesting the President was "smoking" something.

Following the Swedish government's formal request for the president to explain what he meant, Trump later clarified his position to say he'd been referring to a Fox News segment about a rising crime rate being linked to increasing numbers of refugees. 

Now, the embassy has given him the chance to be further educated on the matter, with this tweet:
