Trump to Visit Las Vegas Survivors on Wednesday

Updated on

President Donald Trump said he’ll travel to Las Vegas on Wednesday to meet victims and emergency workers after a killing spree late Sunday that is likely the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, presenting a test of his leadership.

“It was an act of pure evil,” Trump said in a statement at the White House on Monday. The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are assisting in the investigation, he said.
