Trump displays ignorance of Britain

Commenting on Donald Trump's speech in which he suggested knife crime in Britain was increased by British firearms laws, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey said:

“London has seen a disturbing rise in knife and gun crime but Donald Trump's remarks are nevertheless ridiculous.
“To defend America’s shocking gun laws by revealing his ignorance of Britain should alarm even his apologists in the Conservative Party.
“Theresa May should confirm to Parliament that she will explain to Trump that the UK’s strict gun laws have been key to keeping gun crime much lower than in America, and that the recent rises in knife crime have not been caused by our gun laws. "
