Watch: Farage supports Donald Trump and claims Swedish city could be 'rape capital of the world'
The former Ukip leader suggested the property mogul had been unfairly criticised for his speech at a rally in Florida on Saturday and went one step further by suggesting a Swedish city could now be the “rape capital of the world”.
Mr Trump indicated there had been a terrorist incident in Sweden the night before, which led to mockery, including from the former Swedish Prime Minister, as there had not been anything resembling a terror attack on Friday night.
But speaking on his LBC show, Nigel Farage was quick to defend the Republican billionaire and suggested Malmo, a city in the south of the country, may be the world’s rape capital.
He said: “As so often is the case with Trump, in terms of direction of travel what he was saying was very valid.
“There have been no specific terrorist attacks in Sweden but pro rata Sweden have taken more young male migrants than any other country in Europe and there has been a dramatic rise in sexual crime in Sweden.
“So much so that Malmo is now the rape capital of Europe and some argue even the rape capital of perhaps the world and there is a Swedish media who frankly just don’t report it.”
The last attack believed to be linked to Islamic terrorism in Sweden was the Stockholm bombings which injured two people in 2010.

But during the Florida rally, Donald Trump told the crowd: “You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden.
“Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible."
