“Well, it’s a very sad thing,” Trump told reporters at the White House before he left for Nevada.

“We’re going to pay our respects and to see the police who have done really a fantastic job in a very short time.”

His trip comes a day after he travelled to San Juan, Puerto Rico, where residents are reeling after Hurricane Maria devastated the island two weeks ago.
