President Trump spoke about gun laws in France during a free-wheeling address to the National Rifle Association rally, which was packed with suporters, in Texas on Friday in which he also talked about knife crime in London, comparing a hospital in the city to a war zone-like one. The attacks left 130 people dead and hundreds injured.

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.

President Donald Trump sparked an uproar across the Atlantic after he suggested that London's knife problem is worse than gun violence in America and that France's strict gun laws got in the way of a faster end to the Paris terror attacks of 2015. The head of States wishes that the country was free to carry a firearm.

"France is proud to be a safe country, where the buying and holding of firearms is strictly regulated".

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Mayor expressed hope that trump will stick to my words and repent, said: "His comments are shocking - they weren't supposed to come out of the mouth of the President of the world superpower", the Minister said in an interview to BFM.

Manuels called it "indecent and incompetent" and asked "what more can I say", while Hollande tweeted: "Donald Trump's shameful remarks and obscene histrionics say a lot about what he thinks of France and its values".

The Royal London Hospital has cut the number of our young patients returning after further knife attacks from 45 per cent to one per cent. "They captured them and killed one after the other - boom, boom", Come here, let's boom boom!" Boom! Come over here ... "Knives, knives, knives", he had said, accompanied with a stabbing motion.

The sketch centres on a legal deal to keep her quiet - although Mr Trump denies any affair. A spike in knife crime earlier this year ensured London had more murders than NY in February and March.

'They don't have guns.

"There is more we can all do to combat this violence, but to suggest guns are part of the solution is ridiculous", Brohi tweeted. "Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix".

Britain's government effectively banned handgun ownership in England, Scotland and Wales after a school shooting in 1996.

Relations with Prime Minister Theresa May cooled previous year after she criticised him for retweeting anti-Islam videos by a British far-right group.
