Anger in France, UK over Trump guns speech

Defending the use of guns the US president said'Yes that's right they don't have guns they have knives. They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital

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

"And instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital".

"Knives, knives, knives. London hasn't been used to that". They're getting used to that.

Then Trump leveled the clincher: "But if one employee, or just one patron had a gun, or if one person in this room had been there with a gun, the terrorists would have fled or been shot". But the doctor who may have inspired that comment says the President missed the point entirely.

The US ambassador to Britain, Woody Johnson, said Mr Trump would "definitely" be coming to London, despite the warnings of likely demonstrations.

"Trump makes Londoners dislike him more, and the USA dislike London more", he told The Guardian. Gun violence death rates are much higher in the US.

"4.88 per 100000 murdered in U.S. per annum, 0.92 per 100000 in UK".

United Kingdom government suffers Brexit defeat in House of Lords
Speaking afterwards, he said ministers would consider the implications of the vote. Ministers said this risked "weakening" the UK's hand in negotiations.

The November 2015 attacks by gunman loyal to the ISIS terror group were the worst in France's history and left the capital and wider country deeply traumatised.

London suffered a spike in knife crime early this year, and saw more murders during February and March than NY.

It's unclear what hospital Trump was referring to. In the past, some have cast doubt on the anecdotes he has used to tell disparaging stories about European capitals - for example, the identity of his friend "Jim", a wealthy American who apparently refuses to travel to Paris because of crime fears of whom the USA president has spoken of several times, remains a mystery.

On November 22, 2015, Breitbart News reported that Trump told George Stephanopoulos that concealed carry could have reduced the carnage that occurred in Paris. The interview was picked up by Mail Online.

If anyone had any hope that President Trump would adopt a more conciliatory stance towards Britain before his visit in July, it was dashed on Friday, when he appeared before a National Rifle Association conference in Dallas and took a jab at London's crime rate.

Dr. Martin Griffiths, a trauma surgeon at London's Barts Health NHS Trust, in April said colleagues who had served in the military likened the hospital's daily case load - including an influx of children who were victims of violent crime - to that seen at Camp Bastion Hospital, in Afghanistan.

"There is more we can all do to combat this violence, but to suggest guns are part of the solution is ridiculous", Brohi continued.
