“The View” co-hosts on Tuesday reacted to Donald Trump making up a terrorist attack in Sweden. Watch below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Trump referred to “last night in Sweden” during a rally on Saturday, even though nothing happened in the country. Whoopi Goldberg now said, “A lot of people weren’t sure what exactly he was talking about, including everyone in Sweden.” When Sunny Hostin started to say, “This is the problem I had with it,” Goldberg interrupted to ask, “Only one?”

“You’re right, Whoopi, I had several,” Hostin conceded. She pointed out that Trump’s vague Sweden remark was based on a TV segment that was allegedly inaccurately connected to immigration. “Trump likes to talk about fake news, well, he based his statement on fake news, that was fake journalism,” said the attorney.

Jedediah Bila said, “For me, the issue was he made it sound like an incident of terrorism that happened in Sweden.” She argued it’s “fine” to talk about criminal issues and immigration problems, but “he needed to say that’s where he got his information.” Goldberg retorted point-blank, “What he put out there is a lie. There hasn’t been incidents in Sweden.”

And Joy Behar said, “Here’s the tragedy of the way he lies and makes up stories: Over 40 percent of Trump voters didn’t know that Frederick Douglass is dead… He’s always lying, and his base, half of them believe it.” Bila tried to argue, “That happens with every politician,” but the rest of the panelists weren’t having it.

Haines called the Sweden situation “misleading at best,” and complained of Trump, “You’re grouping in an immigration problem, facts or not, and you’re sweeping it in with major terrorist attacks. That’s a false equivalence.” Hostin went on declare, “He’s making people afraid of immigrants.”

“That’s what this is all about,” agreed Goldberg, who further said, “It doesn’t help if you don’t have your facts.” Check out the video below.
