A Las Vegas shooting victim told the media that she found President Donald Trump to be “comforting” and that he “wasn’t who we see on social media.”


Tiffany, a teenager who was injured during the Vegas shooting, met with President Trump while she was still in the hospital. In an interview with NBC News, she said she Trump asked her who was playing at the country music festival and if she thought the gunshots were fireworks at first.

“You said he was amazing, why was that?” a reporter asked Tiffany.

“Yeah, he was like super nice. He wasn’t who we see on social media,” she responded. “He was much more comforting…his tone of voice and just the way he was.”
