Gobsmacked Londoners bash Trump after he complains about United Kingdom violence to NRA

France is sternly rejecting US President Donald Trump's argument that if Parisians had more guns they could have stopped the deadly 2015 attacks on the French capital.

The country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs countered the president's remarks by stating, essentially, that its overall low rate of gun violence proves firearm restrictions work.

Former French president Francois Hollande, who was ruling the country at the time of the Paris attacks, rejected Trump's remarks as "shameful" and "obscene" which "tell a lot about what he thinks about France and its values". "They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital", Trump added.

In an attempt to underscore the futility of gun control, the commander-in-chief argued that gun laws could not prevent the 2015 Paris shooting and also said the United Kingdom had witnessed a spike in knife attacks. Boom! Come over here. "Boom!" he repeated, "recreating" the brutal attack.

"They took their time and gunned them down one by one", Trump said as he pointed his fingers in the shape of a gun.

Trump told the NRA convention in Dallas on Friday that a "once very prestigious" London hospital was "like a war zone for disgusting stabbing wounds". "They have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital", Trump said.

Trauma surgeon Martin Griffiths said last month that colleagues had likened the Royal London Hospital in east London to the former British military base Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.

The Minister of Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire denounced Trump's comments, urging Trump to "retract his words and express regret".

"Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries, and more hard to fix", Prof Brohi said in a statement on Saturday.

Trump said Friday, in a speech before members of the National Rifle Association, that the situation in Paris would have ended differently if some of the people who suffered the attacks were armed.

"It's just politically convenient, in a speech to the gun rights lobby, to try and make those comparisons and they are totally spurious".

Speaking to BFM television Sunday, Mr Hollande called Mr Trump's comments "intolerable" for the survivors and victims' families. He said, "Paris, France, has the toughest gun laws in the world". He says in London one of our famous hospital is like a war zone with knife incidents.LIE.
