Trump praises bravery of survivors of Las Vegas mass shooting

A little-known device called a

US President Donald Trump, who on Wednesday visited Las Vegas to meet the survivors of the deadliest shooting in America, avoided the topic of gun control while addressing the media. The shooting left more than 50 people dead and hundreds injured. Although tighter gun restrictions never materialized after those shootings, gun sales climbed during the tenure of former President Barack Obama as gun buyers anxious over regulations on sales.

"Scripture teaches us the Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. But we'€™re dealing with a very, very sick individual", Trump said of Paddock on Tuesday. And they're all saying 'We want to do it, how do we do it?' And believe me, I'll be there for them.

He also thanked first responders and law enforcement for their swift action protecting people.

After Donald Trump's remarks about the Las Vegas shooting being a "miracle", social media went viral in opposition.

Gov. Kim Reynolds on Monday ordered all flags in Iowa be lowered to half-staff until sunset on Friday to honor the murdered and injured in Sunday night's tragedy in Las Vegas.

He called the late gunman "demented" and said "we're looking into him very seriously". He later added that it was "a very frightful thing even to think about".

In addition to victims, the president met with first responders, medical professionals and local officials.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deflected questions on Monday about whether President Trump would pursue any changes to USA gun laws in the wake of the mass shooting Sunday in Las Vegas.

He first responded to the shooting with a tweet on Monday that expressed his condolences. A motive is yet to be determined.

Authorities said Paddock opened fire from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel against his victims who were 1,200 feet (365 meters) away.

President Trump owns a hotel in Las Vegas, he associates that he feels deep ties to the city.

In a tweet Monday, Trump offered "My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the bad Las Vegas shooting".

He said the authorities were "learning a lot more" about the gunman, Stephen Paddock, and that more details would be "announced at an appropriate time".
