Ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage has backed recent criticism by US President Donald Trump of Sweden’s liberal immigration policy by calling the city of Malmo the “rape capital of Europe.”
Speaking on his own LBC radio show on Monday night, Farage claimed Malmo had the highest rate of rape in Europe because of its liberal stance toward immigrants.
“Malmo in Sweden is the rape capital of Europe due to EU migrant policies,” Farage said.
“Anyone who says there isn’t a problem is lying to you.”
His comments come after Trump implied at a campaign rally in Florida on Saturday that Sweden had been subject to a terror-related attack on Friday night.
