Donald Trump Delivers Full Statement on Las Vegas Shooting (Video)

Donald Trump spoke for almost five minutes moments ago about the Las Vegas massacre in an address to America.

“We are joined together in sadness, shock and grief,” he began. “We cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss.”

He then thanked first responders, and sent his condolences again to those affected by the tragedy.

“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,” Trump continued. “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.”

“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,” he continued. “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.”

At the time of this publication, at least 50 people have died and over 200 have been injured in this tragedy that took place on Sunday (October 1) during a country music festival in Las Vegas. Our thoughts are with the victims and all those affected by the massacre.

    See he decided to stick with the written statement given to him. You can tell he was reading because it wasn’t his normal rhetoric. Just wait for it.

    This was such a tragedy. Those poor people. I liked what the President said.

    Wow what an on point and supportive comment in response to a well worded address to our country from our President after a horrific mass shooting….. Golly check your priorities – or better yet – get some! Focus on the words and purpose of them – and not try to find the smallest and most infantile thing you can to try and demean and distract. Stop spreading your negativity and hatred, and using it to try and take the focus away from what is important… supporting the victims and their families – which is what YOUR president is trying to do – regardless if you like him or not.

    He is nothing but a lying idiot. He supports the 2nd Amendment and did nothing to stop Las Vegas from happening.

    supporting the victims and their families would be something like passing obvious and sensible gun control laws. do we really need assault rifles? do people really need to buy guns in the double digits? just because he set the bar low doesn’t mean we should praise him for saying something normal.
