President Trump on the Shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada

Washington, DC...My fellow Americans, we are joined together today in sadness, shock, and grief. Last night, a gunman opened fire on a large crowd at a country music concert in Las Vegas, Nevada. He brutally murdered more than 50 people, and wounded hundreds more. It was an act of pure evil. 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.




I want to thank the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and all of the first responders for their courageous efforts, and for helping to save the lives of so many. The speed with which they acted is miraculous, and prevented further loss of life. To have found the shooter so quickly after the first shots were fired is something for which we will always be thankful and grateful. It shows what true professionalism is all about.

Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now mourning the sudden loss of a loved one -- a parent, a child, a brother or sister. We cannot fathom their pain. We cannot imagine their loss. To the families of the victims: We are praying for you and we are here for you, and we ask God to help see you through this very dark period.

Scripture teaches us, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” We seek comfort in those words, for we know that God lives in the hearts of those who grieve. To the wounded who are now recovering in hospitals, we are praying for your full and speedy recovery, and pledge to you our support from this day forward.

In memory of the fallen, I have directed that our great flag be flown at half-staff.

I will be visiting Las Vegas on Wednesday to meet with law enforcement, first responders, and the families of the victims.

In moments of tragedy and horror, America comes together as one -- and it always has. We call upon the bonds that unite us -- our faith, our family, and our shared values. We call upon the bonds of citizenship, the ties of community, and the comfort of our common humanity.

Our unity cannot be shattered by evil. Our bonds cannot be broken by violence. And though we feel such great anger at the senseless murder of our fellow citizens, it is our love that defines us today -- and always will, forever.

In times such as these, I know we are searching for some kind of meaning in the chaos, some kind of light in the darkness. The answers do not come easy. But we can take solace knowing that even the darkest space can be brightened by a single light, and even the most terrible despair can be illuminated by a single ray of hope.

Melania and I are praying for every American who has been hurt, wounded, or lost the ones they love so dearly in this terrible, terrible attack. We pray for the entire nation to find unity and peace. And we pray for the day when evil is banished, and the innocent are safe from hatred and from fear.

May God bless the souls of the lives that are lost. May God give us the grace of healing. And may God provide the grieving families with strength to carry on.

Thank you. God bless America. Thank you.

Why couldn't you have done the same for the sick and dying in Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory, instead of blaming them?

    Or for the lady killed in Charlottesville by a white supremacist?

    There is a lot of pure evil out there but our racist president sees only the slice that fits his prejudices.

    BTW, the right-wing internet fake news operation misidentified the shooter as a Democrat who like Rachael Maddow's show and promptly plastered the guys face and info all over the internet. Truly deplorable.

      Yes. Thank you, President Obama. So far, Trump has done NOTHING for the economy. Well, he has helped his own economy by putting the Secret Service in Trump hotels, etc. But for the rest of us...NADA.

        Just so you know, I think you are a complete dickhead for messing up all the threads just because you disagree with how John runs his site. You cause the rest of us far more inconvenience than you cause John, so your whole approach is just stupid, rude and completely immature and self-centered. It is something Trump would do.

          If you want to make your point, say it with words, not empty space. That's also something Trump would do.

        Perhaps they were wearing really ugly ties, and he didn't like them, and hence the mass shooting?

        Did you know that Trump also caused the snowstorm we had a couple of weeks ago and also released the bark beetles to decimate our trees. Under investigation is whether Trump is responsible for Jerry Brown's alopecia totalis. Also under investigation is whether
        Trump has anything to do with Nancy Pelosi's dementia.

Hey Mr. Trump or sugar tits! If I wanna hear about prayers and god, I'll get that from my pastor. Try acting like a leader. Now what are you gonna do? Because just praying and grief is not working, obviously.
