Iconic Las Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton said he hopes that Sunday's massacre will not define the city.

"Having thought it through, I don't believe it will," Newton told Jillian Mele in an interview that aired this morning on "Fox & Friends." "I know Las Vegas will recover from it."

He said the horrific mass shooting, which left at least 59 people dead and more than 500 injured, could not have been foreseen and could happen in any city.

As for gunman Stephen Paddock, Newton said he believes Paddock committed suicide to escape justice.

"But I know that there's a seat waiting for him in hell, so he'll suffer a long time," he said.

Newton also said he's thrilled that President Donald Trump will be traveling to Las Vegas, because he will bring the attention of the world with him.

"He coming here is showing people that this is a great city and they're great people," he said.

On Tuesday, Newton announced that he would give $100,000 to those affected by the shooting.
