France slams Donald Trump for Bataclan remarks during NRA speech

Donald Trump has described an unnamed London hospital as a'war zone, with'blood all over the floors because of knife crimes

"Boom!", Trump said, using his hands in a gun gesture.

Two months before he makes a controversial trip to London, US President Donald Trump compared a hospital in the United Kingdom capital to a "war zone", suggesting the country's anti-gun culture is contributing to a surge in stabbings.

Saying that Americans' rights to carry guns were "under siege", he said: "I recently read a story that in London, which has unbelievably tough gun laws, a once very prestigious hospital right in the middle is like a war zone for disgusting stabbing wounds. Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix".

Pretending to stab someone, the 71-year-old continued: "They say it's as bad as a military warzone hospital".

Britain effectively banned handgun ownership after a 1996 school shooting. Gun violence death rates are much higher in the U.S. In 2017, London's murder rate per 100,000 people was 1.2.

Rescue operations have entered their second day at Sibanye-Stillwater's Driefontein mine in Carletonville‚ near Johannesburg. He said the rescue operation would go on through the night. "The tremors that took place were quite distant from the area.

Comments by Trump have caused upset before in Britain.

But despite the recent spike, the BBC notes that London remains safe compared to American cities.

Griffiths posted his comment next to an animation of a stick figure with the phrase "The Point" flying over its head, and also linked to a statement on the hospital's website by a fellow trauma surgeon, Karim Brohi.

Foreign Secretary and former London mayor Boris Johnson travels to Washington today, where he will meet USA vice president Mike Pence and senior figures including national security adviser John Bolton for two days of talks on Iran, North Korea, Syria and other issues.

Mr Trump is scheduled to visit the city on July 13 after several stop-starts since his inauguration. Come over here. Boom, come over here. "Boom." He insisted armed civilians could have stopped the attack that killed a total of 130 people.

He expressed Japan's continuous support for building Palestinian institutions and infrastructure. Japan holds that Israel must rein in its settlement activity.

"If one employee, or one patron had a gun, or if one person in this room had been there with a gun, aimed at the opposite direction, the terrorists would have fled or been shot", said the US President.

Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo blasted Trump's comments as "contemptuous".

France disapproves of US President Donald Trump's suggestion that the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015 could have fewer victims if the country's gun control laws were not as tight, the French Foreign Ministry said Saturday in a statement.

"Every country freely decides on its own laws on carrying firearms, as in other areas".

Former French President François Hollande also took issue with President Trump's "shameful" comments.
