What more can I say?"In the same speech to the National Rifle Association (NRA) in Dallas, Texas, the USA president criticised the level of knife crime in London, comparing one of the city's hospitals to a "war zone".

The controversial U.S. leader suggested that looser gun laws could have helped prevent deadly attacks in Paris in 2015, and also linked a wave of knife crime in London to a handgun ban. In his statement, Trump said that easy access to guns in France and Britain could have helped prevent deadly attacks in Paris in 2015 and knife crime in London.

"They took their time and gunned them down one by one", Trump said as he pointed his fingers in the shape of a gun.

Manuel Valls, prime minister at the time of the attacks, called Trump "indecent and incompetent", adding "What more can I say?".

He also mimicked the assailants shooting their weapons, saying: "Boom". Come over here. Boom, come over here.

Amidst this, Dr. Griffiths wrote on Twitter with an image suggesting the president had missed the point while adding that he was "happy to invite President Trump to his prestigious 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".

According to figures released by London's Metropolitan Police, the city recorded 4,700 incidents of knife injuries between April 2017 and March this year, the highest reported figures in England and Wales since 2011. He said, "Paris, France, has the toughest gun laws in the world".

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said he hoped Mr Trump would retract his words and "express regret".

"Yes that's right, they don't have guns, they have knives".

Victims group 13 Onze 15, which represents people injured in the 2015 violence, had demanded a response from the French government after the latest salvo.

"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".

The sketch centres on a legal deal to keep her quiet - although Mr Trump denies any affair.

And though he didn't mention any specific London hospitals by name, Trump did say that in some hospitals it's like a "war zone" from all of the knife attacks. "Knives, knives, knives", he had said, accompanied with a stabbing motion. "Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix", he added.

The director of the capital's major trauma system, Royal London surgeon Professor Karim Brohi, said: "Knife violence is a serious issue for London".
