Trump to Las Vegas victims: 'Believe me, I'll be there' for you

"It's a very sick man".

As the president departed the White House, Trump told reporters, "It's a very sad thing".

At a briefing conference, Lombardo called on media to remain patient, because authorities need time to "ensure the continued safety of our community" and local police must join security work for President Donald Trump's visit scheduled on Wednesday to the city.

His remarks from the White House on Monday were the prelude to a two-part test of whether Trump, a leader who excels at political provocation, also can deliver solace. The mass murder that took place on Sunday fills America's heart.

Paddock killed himself as police closed in, and investigators have so far said they do not know what motivated him.

Visiting Puerto Rico on Tuesday, Trump said jokingly that the recovery from Hurricane Maria there was blowing the United States budget "a little out of whack".

For example, in the same press briefing in which Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she didn't want to talk about gun policy, she also took a moment to condemn what she sees as unsuccessful progressive gun policies: "I think if you look to Chicago, where you had over 4,000 victims of gun-related crimes past year, they have the strictest gun laws in the country".

"And if we don't talk about the guns and ways to prevent this, it's going to happen again", Pauliukonis said. "But the message that I have is that we have a great country, and we are there for you, and they're there for us".

He will travel to Las Vegas Wednesday to meet with families of the dead.

The shooting is unlikely to sufficiently shake up well-worn gun politics to produce meaningful changes in the nation's gun laws, even though public support for more regulation typically spikes after mass shootings. "And they were badly wounded because they refused to leave", he said.

On their way, he passed the Mandalay Bay hotel from which the gunman, Stephen Craig Paddock, fired for nine minutes from the 32nd floor at a crowd of around 22,000 people attending an open-air country music festival.

"And we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by", President Donald Trump said Tuesday.

Trump said "a lot more" was being learned about Paddock. "It's a very frightful thing even to think about, ' Trump said".

The announcer encouraged the protesters to look up their representatives and see how much the NRA had donated to them.

As a candidate and now as president, Trump has been often quick to respond ahead of the facts after mass shootings at home and aborad.
