Trump Claims London Hospital Is a ‘War Zone’ From Knife Attacks

President Trump on Friday claimed Britain’s tight gun control laws had turned a single unnamed London hospital into a “war zone” with “blood all over the floors” from knife attacks. Addressing the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas, where organizers had banned firearms for safety reasons, Trump suggested outlawing guns would only see citizens slaughtered by other forms of violence. “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,” he said. “They don’t have guns. They have knives and instead there’s blood all over the floors of this hospital,” he said. Trump also appeared to blame the high death toll in a 2015 terror attack in Paris on the country’s “toughest in the world” gun control laws. Describing how terrorists killed 130 people in a series of attacks, he said that “it would have been a whole different story” if just “one person” had been armed with a gun.
