The couple were scheduled to meet with who the White House described as “civilian heroes and first responders” at 2:50 p.m. EDT.
“It’s a very sad thing,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House early Wednesday. “We’re going to pay our respects. The police who have done, really, a fantastic job in a very short time, and yeah, they’re learning a lot more. And that’ll be announced at the appropriate time. It’s a very, very sad day for me, personally.”
The Trumps are scheduled to visit a Las Vegas hospital to see patients and medical professionals before going to an undisclosed location to meet with first responders.
