The US President Donald trump has angered political and social leaders of France, saying in a speech at the meeting of the National rifle Association USA (NRA): if the French authorities allowed the free possession of arms, could have avoided the bloody terrorist attacks 2015.

France top officials slammed the U.S. president after his claims that the Bataclan carnage and other 2015 terrorist attacks could have been avoided if the country had looser gun ownership laws. They took their time and gunned them down one by one.

The ministry said: 'France expresses its firm disapproval of the comments by President Trump about the attacks of November 13, 2015 in Paris and asks for the memory of the victims to be respected.

The former French president Francois Hollande called Trump's claims "shameful and obscene", and French Prime minister at the time of the attacks, Manuel Vanlls, called the US President "indecent and incompetent".

Mr Trump told NRA members that a "once very prestigious" London hospital, which he did not name, had become overwhelmed with victims of knife attacks.

Trump's observation is simply that the attack was made worse because the victims were rendered defenseless by the myriad gun laws in France. The French minister said that such forces would not mean additional money, but, as he believes, there is enough money presented in the draft of the joint budget for the period from 2021 to 2027.

The French government issued its strongest criticism of Mr Trump since he took office and one minister urged the leader to apologise, at a time when President Emmanuel Macron has been reinforcing bilateral ties following a state visit. "They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital", Trump added. The US President refers to the terrorist attack of 2015, which was held in the French capital.

In reality, the attackers sprayed many of their 130 victims with semi-automatic fire and set off bomb belts.

Trauma surgeons in London, meanwhile, said Mr Trump had missed the point after, in the same speech, he linked knife crime there to an absence of guns. "We are proud of our world-leading service and to serve the people of London", he added in a statement. "France is proud to be a country where acquiring and carrying firearms is strictly regulated".

He said: 'Paris, France, has the toughest gun laws in the world.

"The statistics on gun crime victims do not make us want to change this choice", it said.
