Trump claims more guns could have stop Paris terror attacks

President Trump compared a hospital in London to a military war zone hospital

CNBC quoted a statement issued by French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, saying that "France expresses its firm disapproval of President Trump's comments about the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015 and demands that the memory of the victims be respected".

US President Donald Trump opened up a new controversy as he defended American gun laws by contrasting them with London's stringent anti-gun legislation, claiming it resulted in one of the British capital's hospitals turning into a war zone due to a rise in knife crime instead.

"They were brutally killed by a small group of terrorists that had guns".

He also mimicked the assailants shooting their weapons, saying: "Boom. "They captured them and killed one after the other - boom, boom", Come here, let's boom boom!"

Francois Hollande, who held the presidency during the events described, commented on the speech trump on his page on the social network Twitter, calling it "shameful and indecent".

He suggested sarcastically that countries that ban guns "should ban cars too", because they are "the new form of death for the maniac terrorists".

At least 38 people in London have lost their lives to knife crime so far this year as the city saw a spike in stabbings, according to Scotland Yard. "France is proud to be a country where acquiring and carrying firearms is strictly regulated."The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, tweeted that President Trump's depiction of the 2015 attacks was "scornful and unworthy". We routinely have children under our care - 13, 14, 15 years old are daily occurrences, knife and gun wounds", Dr. Griffiths said".

Donald Trump on Friday said that a hospital in London is "like a war zone" from all of the knife attacks, and it seems a London surgeon may be backing it up, MSN is reporting.

The French foreign ministry issued a statement Saturday after Trump's comments.

"They don't have guns [but] they have knives", he said.

Brohi said that while there is more that can be done to combat knife attacks, gunshot wounds are "at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix".

And though he didn't mention any specific London hospitals by name, Trump did say that in some hospitals it's like a "war zone" from all of the knife attacks.

As well as the response from Brohi outlining the problems with attempting to solve knife crime with guns, his colleague Dr Martin Griffiths, who said in an interview with BBC Radio 4 that some of his colleagues had compared treating stabbing victims to working in Camp Bastion in Afghanistan extended an invitation to Trump to visit The Royal London.
