It is unclear where Mr Trump sourced his information. Though the surgeon's remarks were made a month ago, Dr. Martin Griffiths of Royal London Hospital did make a very similar statement to The Daily Mail. The organisation has responsibility for co-ordination and policy development between hospitals in and around London dealing with serious injuries.
"France expresses its firm disapproval of the comments by President Trump about the attacks of November 13, 2015 in Paris and asks for respect of the memory of the victims", foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll said in a statement.
"To suggest guns are part of the solution is ridiculous. Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix", Brohi said in the statement on Saturday.
"Happy to invite Mr Trump to my (prestigious) hospital to meet with our mayor and police commissioner to discuss our successes in violence reduction in London", he wrote.
He said colleagues who had served in the military compared working in the hospital to war zones in Afghanistan.
"We routinely have children under our care - 13, 14 15-year-olds are daily occurrences..."
If anyone had any hope that President Trump would adopt a more conciliatory stance towards Britain before his visit in July, it was dashed on Friday, when he appeared before a National Rifle Association conference in Dallas and took a jab at London's crime rate. Like elsewhere in Europe, England has extremely strict gun laws compared to the USA, and Trump suggested that criminals have simply switched to using knives - and in the process, leaving their would-be victims unarmed and unable to defend themselves. "They have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital", Trump raved. "Knives, knives, knives, knives".

Palestinian president widely condemned for 'anti-Semitic' comments
"Let Abbas's vile words be his last as Palestinian leader", the New York Times wrote while calling on him to resign . He added: "President Abbas has shown a commitment to non-violence and a two-state solution".
He then mimed stabbing the air, and added: "Knives, knives, knives". London hasn't been used to that. They're getting used to that.
London has experienced a surge in violent crime this year, with 52 people killed in the first 100 days of 2018.
"It's just politically convenient, in a speech to the gun rights lobby, to try and make those comparisons and they are totally spurious".
Trump has a history of criticizing London, and has had several well-documented spats with its mayor, Sadiq Khan.
"If he needs reassurance, Donald Trump is going to be much safer in London than he would be at home", she said.
Caroline Shearer, from Essex who set up Only Cowards Carry after her son Jay Whiston, 17, was murdered at a Colchester house party in September 2012, said that the last thing Britain needed was to follow America's example where "nutcases" carry guns. Relations with Prime Minister Theresa May cooled a year ago after she criticised him for retweeting anti-Islam videos by a British far-right group.
