GETTYLas Vegas shooting Donald Trump to visit Las Vegas to console victims
Thomas Gunderson was at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Monday night when Stephen Paddock, 64, fired shots from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
The bullet went through Gunderson's leg, he suffered torn muscles in his calf and nerve pain but luckily the bullet missed the bone and arteries.
He said he could tell that the Trumps "genuinely cared" about the people who were in the hospital. Gunderson was one of the many people who sustained injuries from being shot and spoke with the president and first lady during their trip. However, the woman who he calls his guardian angel summed up Iclodean's situation relative to the president's visit. Trump then gave Gunderson a pat on the back and asked: 'How's it going?'
Despite the relatively simple gesture that was created to be "an uplifting message during this horrific time", Gunderson later posted on his Facebook that he had received a deluge of hateful comments. When the president comes into the room, President Trump shakes Gunderson's hand and says "This guy looks tough to me".
Gunderson posted the video to his Facebook page with the caption: 'I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand!
"Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves!" he concluded.
