Trump says Scalise "in some trouble" as House gavels back in

Trump says Scalise

"We understand he is lucky to be alive and we owe it to these wonderful individuals and Matt's fighting spirit and grit". So is his support for Bernie Sanders, for whose campaign he volunteered past year.

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Trump said in remarks at the White House on Thursday.

Hunt said Scalise is in excellent hands with the trauma team at MedStar, but he stressed that a bullet from a high-powered rifle causes much more damage than one from a handgun.

Scalise has been an avid participant in the game since arriving in Congress in 2008.

Later, House Republican and Democratic leaders called for unity and praised the police, while Trump in an address from the White House said that the prayers of the nation and world are with Scalise.

Also shot were a congressional staffer and members of the Capitol police force.

The shooting occurred at a popular park and baseball complex across the Potomac River in Alexandria, where Republican lawmakers and others were gathered for a morning practice about 7 a.m.

Thompson spoke about oil in his district, then shifted to comments on the "horrific" events of Wednesday. Multiple members pointed that had Scalise not been accompanied by Capitol police for protection purposes, the result could have been a Republican massacre. He called for replacing "the attacks of hateful personal politics and resistance" with respect.

Earlier Thursday, Republican lawmakers met behind closed doors to share reflections and pray.

President Donald Trump visited Scalise in the hospital, writing on Twitter, "Just left hospital".

Vice President Mike Pence visited the hospital Thursday morning.

Scalise remains in critical condition following surgery, with the hospital treating him saying in a statement Wednesday night "he will require additional operations". The shooter later died from his injuries.

"He's in some trouble", Trump continued.

Barton continued, "We're united not as Republicans and Democrats, but as United States representatives". Witnesses leaving the baseball practice early encountered Hodgkinson, who allegedly asked whether Democrats or Republicans were playing. We likewise join the growing chorus of Americans who hope this tragedy will bind people from all parts of the political spectrum closer together so that we all may follow the example of Reps. Matt Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods who sometimes practices with the team, was also identified as one of the victims, and Sen.

The House on Thursday passed, by voice vote, a resolution expressing "gratitude for the heroic actions" of police officers at the scene of the shooting and "hope for a speedy and full recovery for the injured".

Scalise was fielding balls at second base when he was shot, according to lawmakers present.

The 66-year-old man from IL named James Hodgkinson had a history of violence, volunteered for Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign and argued for higher taxes on the rich. Democrats and rights groups had blamed the President's campaign for the spate in violence against immigrants, such as the killing of Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla in February.
