President Donald Trump said Monday that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, responsible for the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, had severe mental health issues that led him to commit the atrocity.
“I guess a lot of people think they understand what happened, but he was a demented, sick individual,” the president said during a cabinet meeting at the White House.
“The wires were crossed pretty badly in his brain,” Trump added. “Extremely badly in his brain. And it’s a very sad event.”
