President Trump arrives in grieving Las Vegas after mass shooting

President Donald Trump met with victims of Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas Wednesday, three days after the attack that killed 58 and injured hundreds.

Trump declined to discuss gun control measures, even as a bill was introduced in Washington, D.C., to outlaw the kind of equipment used by the shooter to accelerate his firing capabilities.

Asked by a reporter at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas if the United States has a “gun violence problem,” the president dismissed the question.

“We’re not going to talk about that today,” said Trump. “We won’t talk about that.”

On Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that the first days following the shooting were not the time for a “political debate,” but several D.C. lawmakers and administration critics argued that action on the issue needed to take place immediately.

President Trump travels to grieving Las Vegas after mass shooting

President Donald Trump travels to Las Vegas today, three days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history occurred along the city’s famous light-filled strip.

The president will meet with first responders and local officials as well as visit victims’ families.

“We are joined together today in sadness, shock, and grief,” the president said the morning after the shooting. “It was an act of pure evil.”

“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,” he added.

Late Sunday evening, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a country music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino — killing 58 and injuring hundreds more.

“He’s a sick man,

Lena Dunham Compares Trump to Mass Murderer Dylann Roof

Lena Dunham called Donald Trump racist in a tweet on Monday before drawing parallels between the president and white supremacist/mass murderer Dylann Roof.

Dunham was responding to a series of tweets from “Full Frontal” writer Travon Free, who questioned how CNN identifies people as racists. Free concluded his thread by writing, “I’ll end this by trying to help every journalist and analyst in America: [Donald Trump] is a racist. Feel free to take it from there.”

Dunham agreed with Free, and added, “Not only is he a racist, but he’s a racist with untreated mental illness. So under [different] circumstances he’s Dylann Roof.”

In 2015, Roof opened fire at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. He killed nine members of the predominately African-American church and was convicted of 33 federal hate crime charges before being sentenced to death.
