Donald Trump said America "defied death and hatred with love" in an emotional speech paying tribute to the heroes of the Las Vegas mass shooting.

Marilou Danley, 62, issued the statement after returning from her native Philippines and being questioned for much of the day by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents still trying to figure out what drove Stephen Paddock to open fire on 22,000 fans at a country music festival from his 32nd-floor hotel suite.

Later, the Trumps visited a police command center. But that's what we should expect from the man who just this morning on his way to Las Vegas told reporters, "It's a very, very sad day for me personally".

"No red flags. I'm not saying we could have caught it but we know what to look for, we've been in business for 30 years." said Peddle.

While leaving the White House Tuesday for Puerto Rico, Trump described what happened in Las Vegas as "in many ways, a miracle".

It was a somber address from a provocateur president who prides himself on commanding strength but sometimes has struggled to project empathy at times of tragedy. He also pointed repeatedly to praise his administration had received for its efforts, despite criticism on the island of a sluggish response.

After Trump departed, the toll rose to 34.

Asked about Mrs Clinton's remarks, Ms Sanders said it "isn't a time for us to go after individuals or organisations". "Really disgusting", he said.

"Later, Trump released a statement from the White House which offered compassion for the hundreds of Americans personally affected by the shooting, "...our fellow citizens are now in mourning...we can not fathom their pain, we can not imagine their loss".

Trump said after the visit that he'd met "some of the most awesome people" and invited them to visit the White House if they're ever in Washington. Florida Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo is planning to introduce legislation Thursday to ban the sale of them.

Trump's 2016 election campaign was heavily funded by the National Rifle Association (NRA), an organization which advocates for gun rights.

On Wednesday, Trump hinted that he may be willing to consider a debate on gun control in the future.

"At some point, perhaps, that will come", he told reporters.
