Donald Trump thinks there’s a hospital in London that is like a ‘war zone’ because of stabbings in the capital. Of course that’s not true but that did not stop the US President from telling a pro-gun rally that it was. He told the National Rifle Convention (NRA) in Dallas yesterday:
‘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 horrible stabbing wounds.
‘Yes that’s right, they don’t have guns they have knives. ‘And instead there’s blood all over the floors of this hospital. They say it’s as bad as a military war zone hospital.’
Mr Trump may have been referring to this Daily Mail article, which quoted a trauma surgeon who likened a London hospital to an Afghan war zone. But this was probably an exaggeration. So far this year at least 38 people in London have lost their lives to knife crime, according to Metropolitan Police statistics.
Mr Trump also criticised French gun laws and suggested the Paris terror attack could have been prevented if more people were armed. The 2015 attack left 130 dead after terrorists carried out a series of suicide bombs and mass shootings in the French capital.
He went on to say: ‘The one thing that has always stood between the American people and the elimination of our Second Amendment rights has been Conservatives and congress willing to fight for those rights, and we’re fighting.’
