Donald Trump comments on London knife crime branded 'absurd and offensive' by victims' families

Post by Didge on Sat May 05, 2018 4:48 pm

Parents of children murdered in knife and gun attacks on British streets have condemned Donald Trump for claiming that the right to bear arms could help tackle gang violence in the UK.

The US president claimed that knife crime in London was so bad that a hospital ward was like a “war zone” due to stab wounds.

He told the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas, Texas, that because Britain has “unbelievably tough gun laws” there was "blood all over the floors" from knife attacks in one of the capital's emergency wards.

It appears Mr Trump may have been referring to comments by Martin Griffiths, a surgeon at the Royal London Hospital, who likened an emergency ward there to an Afghan war zone due to the number of victims of knife attacks.

So agree with the parents here, as what a dumb fuck thing to say, with gun crime in the US

Donald should address the unholy mess in his own backyard frontroom before criticising other countries.

I agree, so do you not think that idiots that pander to extremists, should never lead this country?

Like Corbyn, that calls terrorists his friends, in Hamas and Hezbollah?
