  • A country music fest on the Las Vegas Strip was the scene of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history when a gunman in a nearby hotel opened fire on the crowds below. At least 59 were killed and as many as 500 more were wounded.
  • In the face of growing criticism for the delayed response to help a devastated Puerto Rico, President Trump offered assurance in an untraditional manner: a golf trophy. Speaking at his golf resort in New Jersey, Trump said: “On behalf of all of the people of Texas, and all of the people — if you look today and see what is happening, how horrible it is but we have it under really great control — Puerto Rico and the people of Florida who have really suffered over this last short period of time with the hurricanes, I want to just remember them. And we’re going to dedicate this trophy to all of those people that went through so much that we love — a part of our great state, really part of our great nation.”
