A young teen who survived the Las Vegas massacre was pleasantly surprised to find President Trump to be “super nice” when she met him in the hospital.
The 18 year-old with a bandaged hand spoke to reporters after a visit from the president and First Lady Melania Trump at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada on Wednesday.
“He was super nice. He wasn’t who we see on social media,” Tiffany Huizar recalled.

Originally from Santa Anna, California, the Segerstorm High School senior was shot in the stomach and elbow as gunman Stephen Paddock rained down bullets on thousands of concert attendees from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel on Sunday.
Doctors performed surgery to remove the bullet from Huizar who was able to meet with Trump as he made the rounds visiting victims injured in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, NTD-TV reported.
The teen was found Trump’s presence “comforting” and seemed surprised that he was not what she expected.
“He was much more comforting,” she recounted.
When a reporter asked what he said that made her feel that way, she replied: “I don’t know, just his tone of voice and just the way he was.”
