President Trump: Scalise a good friend and patriot

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of La. speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington. Scalise was shot Wednesday

"When tragedy strikes we are family", said Rep. Nanette Barragan of California, who plays on the Democratic baseball team and invited all to attend the charity baseball game Thursday night at Nationals Stadium.

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday, adding he also visited the wounded Capitol Police officer at the hospital.

He said that Scalise has been mostly sedated but they've been able to turn down his medication enough for him to respond to family members.

Pelosi also cited past remarks by Trump, saying: "You have a president who says: 'I could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and nobody would care'".

Following a day that saw most congressional business canceled, the House approved legislation offering health insurance tax credits to some veterans while committees pondered subjects from federal land management to cybersecurity.

The gunman, identified by officials as James Hodgkinson, died after the shootout.

Earlier Thursday, Republican lawmakers met behind closed doors to share reflections and pray. He called for replacing "the attacks of hateful personal politics and resistance" with respect.

Scalise on the mend, now in 'serious' condition
Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers. A USA official told CBS News that James Hodgkinson , the Alexandria shooter, had a list of names including GOP Reps.


MedStar Washington Hospital Center says Scalise underwent surgery Thursday related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg.

Former President George W. Bush wrote on Instagram today, "Last night I had a nice chat with Jennifer Scalise, who reports that Steve is fighting hard and getting better".

A Secret Servicer officer was injured Wednesday evening by a vehicle he was trying to stop from disrupting President Donald Trump's motorcade back from the hospital where two victims of the attack on a congressional baseball practice are being treated. "We love you." Lewis led a House floor Democratic sit-in previous year when Republicans refused to consider gun control legislation.

Many lawmakers in both parties called for unity after the shooting.

The Congressional Baseball Game, an annual tradition, went on as planned Thursday.

Votes were canceled in the House on Wednesday, but on Thursday they were taking place. He had been fielding balls at second base when he was hit, and dragged himself away from the infield, leaving a trail of blood until colleagues could rush to his aid.

Sue Hodgkinson told reporters outside her IL home Thursday that she was busy with her job and didn't know a lot about what her husband, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, did between January and March.
