President Donald Trump‘s campaign sent out a fundraising e-mail on Saturday calling on his supporters to join him in prayer “for all those lost or injured in the attack” in Las Vegas, before calling on them to contribute to his campaign.
The Trump-Pence Weekly Newsletter reminded potential donors of the president and first lady’s visit to Las Vegas earlier this week.
“Our nation is still in shock and mourning following the massacre of 58 concertgoers and hundreds of others injured in Las Vegas,” the email begins. “When President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump traveled there to support the victims and their families and to thank the heroic first responders and law enforcement community.”
“We know that your sorrow feels endless. We stand together to help you carry your pain,” the email quotes the president’s words to the victims.
A “contribute” button is featured prominently right below Trump’s “words of comfort and healing.”
