Describing a hospital in the British capital, the president told the crowd of gun enthusiasts in Dallas that knife crime in the area has become prolific.

US President Donald Trump took aim at two of America's closest allies in a speech at the NRA convention, saying strict gun laws failed to prevent the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris and highlighting a purported increase in knife violence in London. They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital. Matthews has been a member of the National Rifle Association for more than 40 years.

Trump quoted comments from a federal judge who suggested on Friday that the special counsel was aiming to hurt Trump by prosecuting Manafort.

The NRA's tweet quickly impacted the restaurant, as it received hundreds of angry messages on Twitter and Facebook.

Protesters calling for gun control say they will show their power in the upcoming midterm elections.

Trump's comments immediately drew a backlash from Londoners on social media.

Charlie Falconer, a lawyer and representative of the left wing Labour Party in the House of Lords, compared Britain's murder rate to the U.S. rate and added: "Trump lies on everything". "Implication UK has similar murder rate to US except knives not guns obviously false", he tweeted. He also supported the Stop School Violence Act, which aims to identify troubled young people but makes no mention of guns.

Groves also said he neither supports nor lobbies against the NRA, and he is a strong Second Amendment supporter.

Last month, trauma surgeon Martin Griffiths told the BBC that some of his colleagues had likened the Royal London Hospital in east London where he works to the former British military base Camp Bastion in Afghanistan.

The president also brought up his idea to arm teachers in the wake of the Parkland shooting. Photographs of the demonstrations will be met with tweets reading #fakenews #recordcrowds and #sad.

"Thanks for showing us that your heart and wallet are in the same place-- not with the kids of Parkland", he said.

But it is not the first time Trump has targeted Paris, implying on the campaign trail in 2016 that the City of Lights was overrun by foreigners and extremists.

"The world is watching and we're going to come up with a solution", Trump assured a group of people affected by the nation's deadliest school shootings during an emotional White House listening session one week after the attack.

Several groups have announced plans to protest over the weekend during the NRA event. The organization stopped short of endorsing a ban on bump stocks, devices used by a gunman who killed 58 people at a Las Vegas country music festival in October to make his firearms behave more like automatic weapons. He and his wife have eight children between them, ages 8 to 21, all of whom are familiar with guns.

But Trump's comments in support of gun rights helped manufacturers mount a rally.

He was disappointed in some of the positions that the NRA has taken in the last year or so and described that there - that the NRA - that there are deep divisions running within the National Rifle Association over the way forward and what should happen with gun legislation.
