Trump had not previously commented on the matter.
Vice President Mike Pence echoed Trump’s sentiment on Twitter.
“Well said, Mr. President,” he tweeted Monday afternoon. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the heroes in Portland and the loved ones they left behind.”
Portland police said two men were killed and another was wounded after a man now being held allegedly starting yelling hate speech toward two women, one of whom was wearing a hijab.
