President Donald Trump landed at McCarran International Airport today, simply days after the city suffered the most dangerous mass shooting in modern-day U.S. history.
Flying force One landed at 9:37 a.m.
Trump was fulfilled on the tarmac by Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, Gov. Brian Sandoval and state Chief law officer Adam Laxalt.
Taking a trip with the president were Nevada lawmakers Sen. Dean Heller and Rep. Mark Amodei, together with Home Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California.
Trump is set up to meet survivors of the attack and police authorities.
The gunman, Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite opened fire Sunday night from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay on a c and w festival below, leaving 59 individuals dead and 527 hurt. At least 45 clients at 2 health centers remained in crucial condition today.
Prior to leaving Washington, Trump stated authorities are “learning a lot more” about the gunman. He stated those information will be announced at “an appropriate time.”
Trump’s Las Vegas check out comes a day after a drop in Puerto Rico, where locals are dealing with the after-effects of Hurricane Maria.
