France condemns US President Donald Trump comments on 2015 Bataclan attacks

Trump London hospital is like'a war zone

"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 is respected", the French foreign ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

In a speech to the National Rifle Association (NRA) in Dallas, Texas, yesterday in which he spoke out in favour of liberal gun laws, the U.S. president sarcastically questioned whether vans, trucks and cars, which have been used as weapons by terrorists, should also be banned before turning to knives.

At the NRA convention, Trump also suggested that a coordinated extremist attack on Paris in 2015 that claimed 130 lives would have been far less deadly if Parisians had been carrying guns to protect themselves. "You notice nobody ever talks about them", Donald Trump said about the terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015.

Trump Friday told the National Rifle Association that the attacks, which he mimicked, would have been prevented "if just one person had had a gun". Boom!' Mr Trump said, using his hands in a gun gesture. Come over here. Boom, come over here.

Hollande's prime minister at the time of the attacks, Manuel Valls, wrote on Twitter: "Indecent and incompetent".

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

Knife crime in Britain rose by 21 per cent last year, according to figures released in September by the Office for National Statistics, which compiles an authoritative survey of crime in England and Wales, and stabbings in London were at their highest level in six years.

Theresa May and Donald Trump reportedly spoke on the phone on Saturday night. As the President pointed out in his speech, Paris has the toughest gun laws in the world. Mr Trump didn't identify the source of the information and didn't provide the name of the hospital. "They have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital".

Regardless of the validity of the President's statements, the French Foreign Ministry considered Trump's theatrics disrespectful. The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, says the focus will be on the overall wellbeing of children, which Mrs Trump has spoken about since becoming first lady. The attacks left 130 people dead and hundreds injured.

"Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix".

Trump didn't mention a specific hospital, but a surgeon at Royal London Hospital did say something very similar.

In the same speech, Trump also sparked anger in Britain by saying that he had heard of a London hospital becoming like a "military war zone" because of rising knife crime in the city.
