President Trump told NRA members at their annual meeting that London knife attacks have left one hospital with blood on the floors.
US President Donald Trump has deplored London’s knife crime, at the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) meeting.
Lauding US gun rights, the president said he recently read that an unspecified London hospital was “like a war zone for horrible stabbing wounds”.
He also told the firearms lobby’s conference in Dallas, Texas, that American gun rights were “under siege”.
Mr Trump is due to visit the UK this summer, after previously cancelling a trip amid calls for mass protests.
It is unclear where Mr Trump sourced his information. However, a leading London trauma surgeon told BBC Radio 4 a month ago that his hospital was likened to an Afghan war zone. The interview was the basis for a Daily Mail article.
