Donald Trump lauds 'hero' responders in Vegas

Donald Trump lauds 'hero' responders in Vegas

A somber President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived Wednesday in Las Vegas, where three days earlier a gunman committed the worst mass shooting in modern American history.

The corresponding rise in gun stock prices mirrors the trend that played out following the mass shootings in Orlando, Fla. and San Bernardino, Calif., in which traders predicted an increase in gun sales prompted by a resurgent fear of increased regulation in the wake of a national tragedy. So we end up with somebody hurt.

"We stand together to help you carry your pain".

According to Reuters, police said more than 50 people were killed and more than 400 were injured when a gunman opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday evening from a 32nd-floor window of a hotel. Police have yet to determine a motive.

Sanders was unusually emotional in opening her press briefing, choking up and stifling tears as she recounted anecdotes of victims and heroes, by name, from the Sunday night horror on Las Vegas' famed strip.

"Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now mourning the sudden loss of a loved one - a parent, a child, a brother or sister", he said from the White House. "Our souls are stricken with grief for every American who lost a husband or a wife, a mother or a father, a son or a daughter", he said.


Trump also praised Las Vegas police, saying they had done an "incredible job".

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are working closely with local authorities to assist with the investigation, and they will provide updates as to the investigation and how it develops. He said in public that his visit would be "a very, very sad moment for me. for everybody no matter where you are, no matter what your thought process".

Candles and a card are left at a makeshift memorial outside the Route 91 music festival site beside the Mandalay Hotel on October 4, 2017. He also tried to console the country, saying "our unity can not be shattered by evil, our bonds can not be broken by violence".

It was unknown if the weapons Paddock bought from the gun shops, New Frontier Armory in North Las Vegas and from Guns and Guitars in Mesquite, were used in the casino massacre.

Visiting Puerto Rico on Tuesday, Trump said jokingly that the recovery from Hurricane Maria on the island was blowing the USA budget "a little out of whack". "I think one of the things we don't want to do is try to create laws that won't stop these types of things from happening", Sanders said.
