Trump Bataclan Barbs `Shocking, Unworthy,' French Minister Says

Defending the use of guns the US president said'Yes that's right they don't have guns they have knives. They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital

France is sternly rejecting U.S. President Donald Trump's argument that if Parisians had more guns they could have stopped the deadly 2015 extremist attacks on the French capital.

"We don't make commentaries about the mass killings they frequently have in the U.S.", Le Maire said.

The French foreign Ministry announced on this occasion a special statement which said: "France strongly disagree with the comments of the President of trump on Paris attacks that took place on 13 November 2015, and it requires respect for the memory of the victims of these events".

Trump Friday told the National Rifle Association that the attacks, which he mimicked, would have been prevented "if just one person had had a gun".

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

Francois Hollande, who was the President of France at the time of the 2015 attack on Paris, has tweeted to say that the US President's comments were "shameful remarks and obscene histrionics", which will affect his relationship with the country of France. He said, "They took their time and gunned them down one by one".

Mr Trump told NRA members that a "once very prestigious" London hospital, which he did not name, had become overwhelmed with victims of knife attacks.




In another reference to terror attacks commited with Trucks and other vehicles, which in Nice alone left 86 dead and 458 injured, the President ironically said that "we are going to have to outlaw, immidietally, all vans and all trucks which are now the new form of death for the maniac terrorists". Did you notice that nobody ever talks about them?"They were brutally killed by a small group of terrorists that had guns".

"They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital ... knives, knives, knives, knives", he added, making stabbing gestures.

Trauma surgeons in London, meanwhile, said Mr Trump had missed the point after, in the same speech, he linked knife crime there to an absence of guns.

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. He said, "Paris, France, has the toughest gun laws in the world. 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.

The French foreign ministry statement added that "France is proud to be a safe country where the purchasing and owning of guns is strictly controlled".

"Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries, and more hard to fix", Prof Brohi said in a statement on Saturday.
