Trump gives somber address with Las Vegas first responders

President Trump and First Lady Melania visited with first responders on Wednesday in Las Vegas, following the shooting on Sunday night.

"In the months ahead, we will all have to wrestle with the horror of what has unfolded this week," Trump said. "But we will struggle through it together. We will endure the pain together. And we will overcome together as Americans."

More from the press conference:

  • "In the depths of horror we will always find hope in the men and women who risk their lives for ours."
  • "We pray for the recovery of the injured and those injured officers who so bravely threw themselves into danger when duty called."
  • "We struggle to explain to our children how such evil can exist. How there can be such cruelty and such suffering."
  • "The example of those whose final act was to sacrifice themselves for those they loved, should inspire all of us to show more love every day for the people who grace our lives."
