“It was an act of pure evil,” President Trump said. “To the families of the victims, we are praying for you and we are here for you and we ask God to help see you through this very dark period.”

“It truly is a great country and… out of 320 million people in this country you’re going to have some evil people,” he told Stuart Varney on Varney & Co. “This is a loving country, this is the greatest place in the world to live and it really disgusts me when politicians, suddenly with a tragedy like this, want to somehow make points out of it -- it’s not the time.”
Harrison, the star of reality show “Pawn Stars” said he’s still in shock and expressed concern over crew members who were freelancing during the country music concert.
“They wrapped at 9:00 and so we don’t know if they stood watching the concert or not and two of the people from the film crew—we still haven’t been able to get a hold of so everyone is really worried this morning,” he said.
