President Trump: Scalise "In Some Trouble". Praying For Victims

Share

United States congressman Steve Scalise has shown improvement over the last 36 hours after being shot by a gunman who opened fire on Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice earlier in the week. The 59th annual baseball game, played at Nationals Park in southeast Washington, looks to be a place where members can show it.

Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center said it's a "good possibility" that the Louisiana Republican will be able to return to work in his full capacity.

The president also asked for prayers for lobbyist Matt Mika, also critically wounded during Wednesday's attack on Republican members of Congress who were attacked while practicing for an annual charity baseball game.

The congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and the hospital said he was more responsive and speaking with family.

Although the weather in Washington looks headed toward a near-flawless summer night, an obvious and immovable shadow is being cast over Thursday night's Congressional Baseball Game - a tradition that began more than a century ago.

"In Washington we have our disagreements, but we all agree that we are here to serve this nation we love and the people who call it home", he said.

Rep. Steve Scalise is still in critical condition, but his health is improving, the Congressman's surgeon said two days after Scalise was shot at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game.

Shooter James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., was shot and died later Wednesday of his wounds in the hospital.

On Thursday, the hospital reiterated that Scalise will need more operations and will be in the hospital "for some time".

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that the president would not attend because of security concerns.

"We're going to play our hardest to win, each team will", Pelosi said, "and throughout the whole game, we will all be Team Scalise".

Ticket sales picked up after Wednesday's shooting, eventually setting an attendance record, the organizers said, as attendees such as Alexander Hilten, 16, of Arlington, Virginia, chose to come to the game for the first time. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful". Williams and Capitol Police Agent David Bailey were also injured in the incident.

Watch the Golden State Warriors Championship Parade
Fans who gathered in Oakland for Thursday's parade said they expected more championships from the team in the years to come. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson threw T-shirts to fans and waved from the top of an open, double-decker bus.

Sava declined to put a timeline on when that would happen, or when Scalise, 51, would be able to leave the hospital. Scalise was on the second base when he was injured by a crazed gunman who was trying to kill Republicans Wednesday.
