President Trump has offered his “warmest condolences” to the victims of the Las Vegas concert massacre, believed to be the worst mass shooting in American history.
More than 50 people were killed and more than 200 wounded after suspected shooter Stephen Paddock opened fire on those at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival Sunday night, according to police.
With much of America waking up to news of the bloodshed, Trump posted his thoughts and prayers on Twitter after 7 a.m.
“My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!” he posted.
The White House said that it offers its “full support to state and local officials,” with the President’s daughter Ivanka Trump saying, “Our collective hearts are breaking for the victims and their families.”
Sunday night’s brutality was also condemned around the world.
“The UK’s thoughts are with the victims and the emergency services responding to the appalling attack in Las Vegas,” British Prime Minster Theresa May said in a statement.
