President Trump compared a hospital in London to a military war zone hospital

The French government on Saturday hit back at a suggestion from U.S. President Donald Trump that looser gun laws might have led to a different outcome to deadly attacks in Paris in 2015, in a speech in which he mimicked how the victims were shot.

The US President Donald trump has angered political and social leaders of France, saying in a speech at the meeting of the National rifle Association USA (NRA): if the French authorities allowed the free possession of arms, could have avoided the bloody terrorist attacks 2015.

The French government slammed Trump's comments, urging the US President to apologize.

France top officials slammed the USA president after his claims that the Bataclan carnage and other 2015 terrorist attacks could have been avoided if the country had looser gun ownership laws.

Hollande called Trump's remarks "shameful" and said they "said a lot about what he (Trump) thinks of France and its values".

"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 frightful stabbing wounds", Trump said, according to The Washington Post. The attackers, armed with assault rifles and explosives, shot dead people watching a football match and attending a concert at the Bataclan Theatre, respectively. What more can I say?' Did you notice that nobody ever talks about them?"They were brutally killed by a small group of terrorists that had guns".

Mr Trump, who is due to visit Britain on July 13, told NRA members that a "once very prestigious" London hospital, which he did not name, had become overwhelmed with knife attack victims. "They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital", Trump added.

France has condemned remarks by US President about the 2015 attacks in Paris and called on him to show respect for the victims of the worst bloodshed on French soil since World War II.

He then mimicked someone using a knife.

Dr. Karim Brohi, another Royal London surgeon, said Trump's position makes no sense.

Trump did not specify which hospital he was referring to but British media said he may have been speaking about The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, in the east of the city. "We are proud of the excellent trauma care we provide and of our violence reduction programs", he said in a statement reported by The Evening Standard.

"Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix", he added. The news source added that estimate does not include "firearms that enter and exit the country illegally, and guns that break down, or are lost or destroyed".
