President Donald Trump met with victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, and one young woman in particular had surprising words to say following his hospital visit (video below).
Tiffany Huziar, who was shot in the stomach and rushed to the hospital after a gunman opened fire on a country music festival and killed 58 people, said she enjoyed her visit with the president.
“He was super nice. He wasn’t who we see on social media. He was much more comforting … his tone of voice and the way he was,” Huziar said, the Independent Journal Review reported.
The 18-year-old was just one of many victims the president met with. Thomas Gunderson, who was shot in the leg, even stood up from his hospital bed out of respect when the Trumps visited.
“I will never lie down when the Ppresident of this great country comes to shake my hand! There may be plenty of issues in this country but I will always respect my country, my president and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my president the respect he deserves!” he said after meeting with Trump.
Trump also met with law enforcement officials during his visit.
Many readers praised him for taking the time to visit with victims of the deadly shooting.
“What a great and caring man and his wife beside him. God bless and keep them in his arms,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.
“I think he’s absolutely amazing! I will gladly vote for him again,” another wrote.
A GuFundMe was launched in support of Huziar after the shooting, with her family subsequently posting an update on her condition.
“Tiffany is recovering from surgery & her injuries aren’t long term nor permanent. Her vitals are unstable due to the length of time the bullet was in her. There’s no way of knowing how long she will be in the hospital. They have insurance but since it’s out of network, they may not cover much. Family and friends, they need donations/help with Tiffany’s medical expenses, the family to have meals/drinks, hygiene etc and the costs for time off work/school for Ismael and The Huizar Family to stay as long as needed there,” the update read.
“Any donation amount is acceptable and helps! Tiffany is a beautiful 18 yr old & a senior at Segerstrom High School. She and her family are definitely facing a long road of recovery (physically, emotionally and mentally) ahead of them so PLEASE PLEASE help out and donate. I know they’ll be forever grateful & truly appreciate your help. God Bless you all.”
