At least 58 people were killed and almost 500 injured when Stephen Paddock targeted a crowd of 22,000 people attending a country music festival.

He was taken to safety by two off-duty police officers. Trump also met with about 100 medical professionals.

"A grateful nation thanks you", Trump concluded, adding that the bravery on display Sunday night should inspire the country to "show more love for the people who grace our lives".

They devoted five minutes on the tarmac at the McCarran International airport huddling with Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R-Nev.), Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman (I), and Clark County sheriff Joe Lombardo, prior to diverging for the University Medical Center to meet up with harmed casualties and medical staff. "I felt like he couldn't do anything to me".

Trump tweeted on Tuesday (3 October): "It was a "miracle" how fast the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police were able to find the demented shooter and stop him from even more killing!"

"Look, we have a tragedy", Trump said Tuesday ahead of his visit to Puerto Rico.

You showed the world and the world is watching, he told them.

Until his final remarks, Mr Trump focused his comments during the trip on praising recovery efforts rather than on grieving for the dead.

Thomas Gunderson was attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night when he was horrifically injured when Stephen Paddock, 64, sprayed bullets on more than 20,000 concertgoers. He also drove past the Trump hotel.

California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told NPR on Tuesday that an Federal Bureau of Investigation briefing revealed that Paddock had some fully automatic weapons in his hotel room. What Democrats want is to open up a general discussion on gun control and go after basic Second Amendment rights.

"We can not be defined by the evil that threatens us or the violence that incites such terror", Mr Trump said at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police headquarters, reading from prepared remarks.

But for advocates of stricter gun control laws, the time to talk is now.

Witnesses and law enforcement official said the quick, 50-round bursts of gunfire raised the possibility that Paddock had used a fully automatic weapon or modified his semi-automatic rifles to function like one.
