Trump Tweets Music Videos Honoring Vegas Victims and Police - And Starring Himself

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway said Thursday that the White House like Hill Republicans'welcome thoughtful conversations on gun control matters

President Donald Trump Wednesday morning left the White House to head to Las Vegas where he will meet with first responders after the late Sunday night massacre that left 59 people dead and 527 wounded.

Fifty-nine people were killed and more than 500 wounded when Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old retiree, opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas from his hotel room on October 1, according to police.

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".

Earlier on Wednesday, Trump tweeted that he would be landing in Las Vegas "to pay my respects" with the first lady: "Everyone remains in our thoughts and prayers".

Three days after a gunman opened fire on a concert crowd on the Las Vegas Strip, President Trump is flying today to the desert-bound casino capital, presumably as comforter-in-chief.

"And they were full the night that it happened, before it happened, and they found room for many people", Trump said about his hospital visit.

At the University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Trump praised the medical personnel for the "incredible job" they did. Rep. Mark Amodei, a Nevada Republican, also will make the trip. He later added that it was "a very terrible thing even to think about".

"Ultimately, when Congress... looks at this, they'll start asking questions about why anybody needs this, and I think the answer is we have a Bill of Rights and not a Bill of Needs", Pratt told the Associated Press. "We're looking into him very, very seriously", Trump said.

On Tuesday, Trump had described Paddock as sick and demented.

"Melania and I are praying for every American who has been hurt, wounded or lost the ones they loved so dearly in this bad, awful attack", he said.

Once in Puerto Rico, Trump said during a briefing with local and federal officials that Hurricane Maria, which had ravaged the island, had thrown the administration's budget "out of whack".

"While everyone else was crouching, police officers were standing up as targets just trying to direct people and tell them where to go", Trump said.
