On Monday morning, President Donald Trump addressed Sunday night’s mass shooting at a Las Vegas music festival that left at least 50 people dead and more than 400 injured. Watch the president’s remarks on the tragedy in the video below.

On Sunday night, a 64-year-old Nevada man named Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Route 91 Harvest Festival. The outdoor concert was attended by more than 22,000 people, who ran for their lives during the horrific attack, which marked the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The gunman shot and killed himself as police eventually swarmed his hotel room, which was filled with multiple firearms, including machine guns and rifles.

As Gossip Cop reported, many Hollywood stars reacted to the shooting on Twitter shortly after the news broke, while many more celebrities urged stricter gun laws in the wake of the massacre. For his part, Trump tweeted earlier Monday morning, “My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting.” A White House official also said in a statement, “We are monitoring the situation closely and offer our full support to state and local officials. All of those affected are in our thoughts and prayers.”

Jason Aldean, who was on stage at the time of the attack, also sent his prayers to the victims shortly after the incident. “Tonight has been beyond horrific,” the country singer wrote on Instagram. “I still don’t know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that me and my crew are safe.” He added, “My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night. #heartbroken #stopthehate.” Watch President Trump’s speech on the Las Vegas mass shooting in the video below.
