More than 50 people were killed in a mass shooting in Colorado, a second mass shooting on US soil in less than a week and the president blaming Congress for failing to pass an emergency spending bill.
In a statement on Thursday, the White House said the president is still reviewing the circumstances of the tragedy and that the US is “reviewing a variety of options”.
The shooting happened at a concert at a local mall and took place at the end of a show by country singer Justin Timberlake, who has become a vocal critic of Mr Trump.
“As the President has said before, we will do whatever it takes to keep our country safe,” the White of House said.
“We are committed to working with Congress to pass a comprehensive and permanent relief package to help the families of those who have lost their lives.”
Mr Trump tweeted on Thursday that he had spoken to his first lady, Melania, and the first lady’s husband, who was among the victims.
“They are amazing,” Mr Trump said.
“I have a beautiful wife, I have a wonderful wife, we love each other very much, and we are praying for them.
We love each others’ families and we love our country.”
