Trump went on to say things might have been different if Parisians in the cafes under attack had been armed.
France top officials slammed the United States president after his claims that the Bataclan carnage and other 2015 terrorist attacks could have been avoided if the country had looser gun ownership laws.
"If one employee, or just one patron had a gun, or if one person in this room had been there with gun, aimed at the opposite direction, the terrorists would have fled or been shot", Trump said.
"France expresses its firm disapproval of President Trump's comments about the Paris attacks on Nov 13, 2015, and demands that the memory of the victims be respected", the Foreign Office said in a statement.

Trauma surgeons in London, meanwhile, said Mr Trump had missed the point after, in the same speech, he linked knife crime there to an absence of guns.
London suffered a spike in knife crime early this year and saw more murders during February and March than NY.
"Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix", he added. "We are proud of our world-leading service and to serve the people of London", he added in a statement. Trump pointed his hand as if it were a gun while describing how each of the victims in Paris was fatally shot.
