President Trump visited Las Vegas on Wednesday. Reportedly this trip had none of the controversy that plagued his recent trip to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

First, Trump stopped at University Medical Center, where he spent time with victims and praised the doctors and nurses who cared for them.

Then he stopped at Las Vegas Police Headquarters to speak with the first responders.

Lastly, he addressed the nation saying, "In the darkest moments, what shines most brightly is the goodness that thrives in the hearts of our people."
