The US President, Donald J. Trump has jumped in on the debate about knife-crime in London, by claiming be heard there was a hospital in London that resembled a war-zone…. Trump, have you been looking at Patriotic People’s Populist media again?
Trump, 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 claimed.
“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.”
Many people would agree with him! Because it’s the truth. A leading surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in East London, Dr Mark Griffiths claimed that; “Some of my military colleagues have described their practice here as similar to being at (Camp) Bastion.”
You could argue the irony of a leader with of a country plagued by guns and gun crime but still some would say London is more dangerous than New York so you can hardly blame the US President for feeling sorrow for London and Londoners.
