Donald Trump has hit out at the sheer volume of knife crimes taking place in London, saying he heard one hospital looked like a war zone…but has he been reading Westmonster?
The President said: “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.
“Yes, that’s right they don’t have guns, they have knives – and instead blood is all over the floors of this hospital.
“They say it’s as bad as a military war zone hospital. Knives, knives, knives. London hasn’t been used to that, they’re getting used to it, it’s pretty tough.”
And he’s right, Dr Mark Griffiths, lead surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in East London, said: “Some of my military colleagues have described their practice here as similar to being at (Camp) Bastion.”
You know knife crime’s bad when a country that’s literally flooded with guns takes pity on you…
