WASHINGTON — President Trump extended sympathies to the victims of the Las Vegas shootings while aides said he is monitoring the course of the investigation into the attack that has left at least 50 people dead.

"My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!" Trump tweeted.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump was briefed early Monday, and "we are monitoring the situation closely and offer our full support to state and local officials. All of those affected are in our thoughts and prayers."

Trump is expected to address the shooting further at a White House event late Monday morning.

The president is still scheduled to travel Tuesday to Puerto Rico to review hurricane recovery efforts.

Vice President Pence also extended sympathies to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting via a series of tweets.

"To the courageous first responders, thank you for your acts of bravery," Pence said in one tweet.
