During his only interview with a UK journalist, President Trump told Piers Morgan that there "is a sea of blood, all over the floors" in London hospitals because "everybody is being stabbed."
Trump sat down with Morgan to discuss several issues on the last day of his state visit, with the President's comments about violent crime standing out.
While Morgan, a noted critic of gun violence in the US, tried to steer the conversation more toward gun control scenarios, Trump noted that such violence is not limited to the US.
"In London you have stabbings all over." Trump noted, adding "I read an article where everybody is being stabbed. They said your hospital is a sea of blood, all over the floors."
With regard to gun crime, Trump noted that his administration placed restrictions on bump stocks, and he vowed to look into laws regarding silencers.
