It was just one month ago when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd attending a country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. By the time Paddock was compromised, the incident ended up becoming the deadliest mass shooting in American history with new details finally being revealed about the killer.

Paddock for Trump

On October 1 of this year, thousands of people attended the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. As the third and final day of the concert was coming to a close, Stephen Paddock broke through a window of his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Armed with multiple guns in his possession, some altered by what is known as bump stock, Paddock fired down onto his innocent victims. Over the course of the next 15 minutes, 58 people were killed, with another 546 being left injured. By the time authorizes made their way to the room in question, Paddock had already turned the gun on himself and taken his own life. In the days that followed, little was known about Paddock expect that he appeared politically neutral, and was a millionaire real-estate investor and property manager who spent most of his money at the local casinos. As expected, the reaction to the shooting was politically partisan, as Democrats turned the focus on the easy access to guns, while Republicans attempted to deflect from the debate over gun control.

Despite this, Newsweek reported on November 3 that Paddock had become a fan of the president in his final months.

During an interview with a local CBS affiliated radio station, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo opened up about where Stephen Paddock stood when it came to the current political climate. "He was happy with Trump because the stock market was doing well," Lombardo said, explaining that Paddock's money in the stock market had seen a significant boost since Trump was sworn into office.

Joe Lombardo's claim appears to match up with the stats, as Forbes recently confirmed that the stock market has increased every month that Donald Trump has been in office, something no other president before him could lay claim to.

Lombardo elaborated further and explained that Paddock's reported recent support of Trump was the "only thing that we have seen that references politics," before noting that they don't believe his motive was politically based.
