Trump's gun law speech sparks anger in Britain, France

On Friday, US President Donald Trump spoke about gun laws in France and Britain during a free-wheeling speech in front of gun owners in Texas.

In March, hundreds of thousands of people rallied the streets of the United States capital for the "March for Our Lives", calling for stricter gun control in the country.

"Free circulation of weapons in society does not constitute a rampart against terrorist attacks, to the contrary, it can facilitate...this type of attack", he said in a statement last Saturday.

Hollande, president throughout the strikes, called Trump's gesture "disgusting" Discussing BFM tele-vision Sunday, Hollande called Trump's comments "intolerable" for its lands and victims' families.

The ministry said: 'France expresses its firm disapproval of the comments by President Trump about the attacks of November 13, 2015 in Paris and asks for the memory of the victims to be respected. "France is proud to be a country where acquiring and carrying firearms is strictly regulated", France's statement said.

Former French president Francois Hollande, who was head of state at the time, said on Twitter that Trump's comments and antics were "shameful" and "obscene".

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. They "said a lot about what he thinks of France and its values", he added.


TheFrench Foreign Ministry has expressed its disagreement with President Donald Trump's statements regarding the 2015 series of terrorist attacks in Paris that left more then 100 dead and hundreds more injured. Boom! Come over here.

The sketch centres on a legal deal to keep her quiet - although Mr Trump denies any affair. However, multiple analyses have since debunked that claim, noting that NY saw 292 murders past year, while London reported 130.

The director of the capital's major trauma system, Royal London surgeon Professor Karim Brohi, said: "Knife violence is a serious issue for London. They have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital", Trump said.

"They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital".

He suggested sarcastically that countries that ban guns "should ban cars too", because they are "the new form of death for the maniac terrorists". "Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix", Brohi said in the statement on Saturday.

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