President Barack Obama will travel to Orlando on Thursday to remember the victims of Sunday's terror attack, the White House said.

Obama will travel to Orlando "to pay his respects to victims' families, and to stand in solidarity with the community as they embark on their recovery," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said.

Described as the deadliest mass shooting on American soil, 50 people died and 53 were injured when a lone gunman with possible connections to ISIS opened fire in an Orlando gay nightclub.

While ISIS has claimed credit for the attack, the FBI has not confirmed a connection to ISIS.

Obama called the attack an "act of hate" on Sunday.
