Trump On Deadly Las Vegas Shooting: ‘It Was An Act Of Pure Evil’ (Video)

President Trump called the Las Vegas attack ”an act of pure evil” and called for national unity in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. 

“Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now mourning the sudden loss” of a parent, child, friend or other family member, Trump said at the White House on Monday. ”We cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss.” 

Trump announced that he would visit Las Vegas on Wednesday, and said the FBI and Department of Homeland Security are working closely with local authorities. He praised the local police department and first responders for their quick response to the attack. 

On Sunday night, a gunman opened fire from a hotel room above a packed, outdoor concert in Las Vegas, an attack that killed at least 50 and wounded at least 400 more.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump was briefed early Monday, and “we are monitoring the situation closely and offer our full support to state and local officials. All of those affected are in our thoughts and prayers.”

It is the first mass shooting under Trump’s watch as his ability to console the nation is already being tested by his administration’s response to hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

There were at least 14 mass shootings during President Barack Obama’s two terms, a source of significant frustration for the president which he described in 2015 as having ”no parallel anywhere else in the world.”

In his response, Trump made no similar references to the phenomenon of mass gun shootings in America and whether anything can be done to prevent them. ”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.” 

“We pray for the entire nation to find unity and peace,” said Trump, who issued a proclamation that the U.S. flag be flown at half staff through Oct. 6.

Vice President Pence also extended sympathies to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting via a series of tweets.
