President Trump called the Las Vegas shooter a “sick” and “demented man” on Tuesday, as the death toll in Sunday night’s massacre rose to 59 and authorities continued to investigate motive.
“He was a sick man, a demented man, lots of problems I guess,” Trump said. “We’re looking into him very, very seriously. But we are dealing with a very, very sick individual.”
The president, who a day earlier called the massacre an "act of pure evil," went on to praise law enforcement and police for their quick response to the scene, calling it “a miracle.”
“Look, we have a tragedy and what happened in Vegas is in many ways a miracle. The police department has done such an incredible job,” Trump said. “We will be talking about gun laws as time goes by, but I do have to say how quickly the police department got in was very much a miracle. They have done an amazing job.”
