Trump Visits Shooting Victims, First Responders In Las Vegas

  • The White House says now isn't the time to discuss gun control despite Monday's mass shooting in Las Vegas

"It doesn't always have to be a gun, but it seems to be that every time that it is, we're attacking the people that are responsible gun owners in the country", he said. I invited a lot of them over to the White House.

The president then met with civilian heroes and first responders.

President Donald Trump touched down in Las Vegas, Nevada, Wednesday afternoon, and just as suspected, he completely dodged questions about gun violence.

After the shooting, Trump tweeted his condolences: "My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the bad Las Vegas shooting".

He heads to the city days after a gunman on the 32nd floor of a Vegas Strip casino and hotel opened fire on people at an outdoor country music festival below. "That'll be announced at the appropriate time", he said.

Despite being shot in a leg during Sunday night's rampage in Las Vegas, Thomas Gunderson found the strength to stand Wednesday when President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited his hospital room.




"It's a very, very sad day for me, personally". He also tried to console the country, saying "our unity can not be shattered by evil, our bonds can not be broken by violence".

After Trump was asked if authorities have determined a motive, he said, "Not yet", and followed that up by deeming the shooter - 64-year-old Stephen Paddock - a "sick" and "demented" man. "There is no reason for them to buy something that makes the gun nearly fully automatic", said Mr Cohen.

'Hey, this guy looks tough to me, ' the president said as he shook Gunderson's hand.

"Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now mourning the sudden loss of a loved one - a parent, a child, a brother or sister", Trump said in his speech.

While he was ostensibly visiting the island to inspect some of the territory's storm damage, Trump turned the appearance into a cheerleading session for a relief effort that some news reports suggest has been plagued by delays and logistical snarls.
