Yes, Donald Trump was lamenting something that didn't happen "yesterday in Sweden". Furthermore, Trump knows nothing about Sweden, and I suspect you don't know much more.
The one thing that keeps coming up on the right wing fringe, is that Sweden has a high rate of reported sexual assault. Of course they don't write about it like that, nor do they explain that the laws about what constitutes a sexual offence are very strict, and that victims are far more likely to actually go to the police and seek justice, than just about anywhere else in the world.
So the high incidence of reported sexual crimes doesn't mean that Sweden has a massive problem. It means they aren't hiding a world wide problem under the rug like in most places, and victims feel that it's worth while seeking justice.
