President Trump called for Americans to unite in the wake of the Texas shooting that left 26 churchgoers dead and 20 others wounded Sunday morning.
Speaking from Japan at a meeting with business leaders, Trump said the “horrific shooting” in Sutherland Springs, Texas, should unite Americans in a time of grief.
"Americans will do what we do best: We pull together and join hands and lock arms and through the tears and sadness we stand strong,” Trump told reporters.
A man opened fire on the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, before going inside and killing parishioners. Authorities said the ages of the victims range from 5 to 72.
Trump promised the country would pray for the Texans killed and injured Sunday, and their families, and his administration do anything it can to help them.
"All Americans pray to god to help the wounded and the families of the victims,” he said, adding, "We will never ever leave their side."
