Billionaire businessman Sheldon Adelson talked with President Trump on Monday about ways he can help the families of those killed and wounded in the Las Vegas shooting Sunday, according to a report Tuesday.
Adelson, who has an estimated worth of $35 billion and owns the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, was scheduled to meet with Trump at the White House on Monday before the shooting took place.
Andy Abboud, senior vice president of government relations for the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino and the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, told the Review-Journal the meeting's focus was meant to focus on policy, but shifted to charity in light of current events.
Adelson backed Trump during last year's presidential campaign and made a $25 million gift to an anti-Hillary Clinton group weeks before the election.
Adelson's wife, Dr. Miriam Adelson, and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner also attended.
The Adelsons have advocated for the U.S. embassy to be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Kushner has led efforts to create a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.
