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

  • President Trump compared a hospital in London to a military war zone hospital

"They took their time and gunned them down one by one", Trump was quoted by AFP as saying.

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".

The President mimicked the terrorists slowly killing their victims when in reality they were armed with automatic weapons and bombs.

Writing on Twitter, he said: "Donald Trump's shameful comments and obscene mockery speak volumes about what he thinks of France and its values".

Hollande, president throughout the strikes, called Trump's gesture "disgusting" Discussing BFM tele-vision Sunday, Hollande called Trump's comments "intolerable" for its lands and victims' families.

Trump's remarks come just a week after he invited French president Emmanuel Macron as a guest of honor at the White House.

Manuel Valls, who was France's prime minister in 2015, tweeted: "Indecent and incompetent".

France has strongly criticized US President Donald Trump's remarks suggesting more flexible arms rules in the country could have helped prevent deadly terrorist attacks in 2015.

The atrocities by gunman loyal to ISIS were the worst terror attacks in France's history and left the capital and wider country deeply traumatized.

French rage faded this weekend Trump's feedback into the National Rifle Association - and especially at his trigger-firing hand gesture imitating the Bataclan attackers. "What more is there to say?" "Yes, that's right, they don't have guns, they have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital".

He then mimicked someone using a knife.

Dr. Karim Brohi, another Royal London surgeon, said Trump's position makes no sense. "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 director of London's major trauma system said "to suggest guns are part of the solution [to combat knife crime] is ridiculous". "Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix", Brohi said in the statement on Saturday.

The gun safety is a cause of major concern in the United States, especially as the USA submitted its joint bid with Canada and Mexico to host Federation Internationale de Football Association 2026 World Cup. The news source added that estimate does not include "firearms that enter and exit the country illegally, and guns that break down, or are lost or destroyed".
