Trump, the front-runner to become the Republican candidate for the White House gave an interview to right wing French magazine Valleurs Actuelles in which he talked about the November Paris attacks and the state of France.
Trump believes the lesson France can learn from that night is that people should be allowed to carry guns.
“Do you really think that if there were people in the crowd, who were armed and trained, things would have turned out the same way?,” Trump said.
“I don't think so. They would have killed the terrorists. It makes sense.
“I always have a gun on me. I can tell you that if I had been in the Bataclan or in the cafes I would have opened fire.
“I may have been killed, but I would have drawn.”
Trump, who knows how to stir up a hornet's nest also suggested that Fox News was right in its now infamous news report on the so-called “no-go zones” in Paris.
“Unfortunately France isn't what it was and Paris neither. There are areas where you have the impression that they are outside the law… that there are some lost territories of the Republic,” Trump went on.
“French friends tell me they sometimes no longer feel at home in their country,” said Trump who famously called for Muslims to be blocked from entering the US.
Fox News had to apologize several times for claiming there are “totally Muslim” no-go zones in Europe, comments that aired on the station following the Charlie Hebdo attacks in France.
