Donald Trump arrived this Wednesday in Las Vegas, a trip in which he will have to demonstrate his ability to comfort the United States traumatized by the most deadly mass killings in their history. Accompanied by his wife Melania, the US president was to meet victims of the carnage as well as investigators who are still trying to determine the motives of the killer, a 64-year-old retired unknown to the police.
On the tarmac, Donald Trump and the first lady were greeted by Sheriff Lombardo. He was the one who directed the security operations on the evening of the killing.
The long presidential convoy then headed for the UMC, the main hospital in Las Vegas along the scene of the drama, the hotel-casino Mandalay Bay from where the killer opened fire on Sunday night on the 20,000 spectators of ” a country music concert with 23 automatic rifles.
Inside the hospital where more than 100 wounded were received Sunday, Donald Trump must meet survivors of the massacre and his words of comfort are much awaited in Las Vegas.
At the same time, in Los Angeles, began the hearing of the killer’s companion by the FBI. This Australian-born Filipino, formerly employed casino in Las Vegas has returned this night from the Philippines of her own free will. She is qualified by the police as a “witness of interest” without being a suspect.
Thanks to it, the investigators hope to obtain answers. First of all on the $ 100,000 that Steven Paddock had just transferred to the Philippines, a few days before he started his murderous project. But especially on the motivations of the killer that remain blurred today.
