How to use infer in a sentence?

  1. Foreign Minister Reynders:

    You shouldn't always look somewhere else for reasons for what you're going through at home.

It's a mistake, I think, to infer from that that what went wrong went wrong only abroad.

It may require a much larger telescope than Hubble, it may require some future space telescope, but nevertheless, it's a tool now that we didn't have prior to this work that Joachim and his team have done.
