2 October 2017
Dear President Trump,
I was deeply saddened by the shooting incident on 1 October 2017 on the Las Vegas Strip where many innocent lives were lost and countless injured. Singapore condemns this senseless and indiscriminate act of violence.
On behalf of the Government of Singapore, I offer our deepest condolences to the bereaved families and wish the injured a speedy recovery. Our thoughts are with the American people during this difficult time.
LEE HSIEN LOONG
The Honorable Donald Trump
