Trump Angers the French

Share

"Each country is free to decide its own legislation in regards to gun control" and "the statistics on victims of gun violence do not lead France to question its laws in this matter". "France prides itself on its territory is strictly limited to the right to bear firearms".

In a speech to the National Rifle Association (NRA) on Friday, Mr Trump mimicked the shooting of victims in the Paris rampage and said if civilians had been armed, "it would have been a whole different story".

Dr. Martin Griffiths, a surgeon at the Royal London Hospital, tweeted that he would be "happy to invite Mr. Trump" to visit his hospital and meet with London's mayor and police chief to learn how the city has reduced violent crime.

The Washington Post estimated in 2015 that there were 357 million firearms in the U.S. in 2013 "40 million more guns than people". You notice nobody ever talks about them.

He further added, "They were brutally killed by a small group of terrorists that had guns".

"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 awful stabbing wounds", Trump said, according to The Washington Post. Boom! Come over here.

Meanwhile, former French president Francois Hollande and ex-prime minister Manuel Valls, who both here in office during the attacks had similar reactions.

Franois Hollande, who was French president at the time of the attacks, said Mr Trump's remarks were "shameful". "The friendship between our peoples will not be stained by this disrespect and outrageousness. All my thoughts go out to the victims of November 13".

The entire world was left teary-eyed and appalled when a series of coordinated terror attacks shook Paris on 13 November 2015.

In reality, the attackers sprayed many of their 130 victims with semi-automatic fire and set off bomb belts. The Islamic State had claimed responsibility for it.

Trump also sparked controversy by implicitly referring to terrorist attacks involving vehicles, including the Nice Bastille Day attacks of 2016.

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

"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 terrible stabbing wounds".

"Yes that's right, they don't have guns, they have knives". "They say it is as bad as a military war zone hospital".

This week, Trump reenacted the 2015 Paris attack and said London will have to get used to the violence. They're getting used to it.
