A former Donald Trump aide, who helped during the 2016 election, has been condemned on social media following his comments on the London Bridge terror attack on Friday.

Just hours after two people were stabbed to death in an attack on London Bridge, David Wohl, who three years ago was a campaign surrogate for the president, gave his thoughts on what had happened.

According to Wohl, whose son Jacob is a notorious presence in the American conservative movement, claimed that the entire incident could have been prevented if guns were readily available in Britain.

Wohl's incredibly misguided take on the situation and failing to understand that more guns would have probably resulted in more deaths was swiftly torn to shreds on Twitter.

This take was so bad, even Piers Morgan called him out.

Wohl, tried to respond but he didn't exactly have the greatest of comebacks.

When asked to give an example of how someone has used a gun to effectively prevent a terrorist attack he linked to a 2018 article detailing how more people use a gun in self-defence each year than die in car accident, which really didn't answer the question at all.

As it turned out, the people of London didn't need guns to protect themselves, just a narwhal tusk and a fire extinguisher.
