President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania arrived in Las Vegas on Wednesday to visit the victims of the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
Watch the Incredible Video Of Trump Visiting Victims:
They traveled to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada on a private visit to see patients and medical professionals there.
One nurse told CNN how he greeted first responders by gripping them on both arms, leaning in with warmth to tell them how grateful he was.
President Trump and first lady Melania went room to room to talk to each of the ten patients they visited and their families. The President asked for their stories of how they survived.
He wanted to know about their favorite country stars if they had heard the gunshots and how they escaped the location. He invited them to "drop by" the White House when they were in DC; one doctor told CNN.
The CEO of the hospital, Mason Van Houweling, said that Trump comforted victims who had lost friends and family members.
He met with more than 100 staff members, including an environmental technician who mopped "gallons of blood" from the emergency room floor in the midst of the madness.
"He was a real statesman today," said Van Houweling told CNN in an interview outside the emergency room, adding that the President "gave lots of hugs" and took selfies with anyone who asked. "He spent lots of time with (the victims). He was not rushed by any means."
"I heard a lot of laughing" from the rooms, he said, describing how the President joked with the patients and sought to lift their spirits.
Wednesday’s visit indeed showed us the empathy that our President Trump has for the people of America.
