President Trump Wednesday evening visited House Republican Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who is in a hospital undergoing treatment for severe injuries from a gunshot sustained Wednesday morning as Republicans practiced for their annual softball game against Democrats.
The latest report is that Scalise is in critical condition and will require more surgery. Trump was accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump, who brought flowers.
Prior to heading to the hospital, the First Family celebrated the president’s 71st birthday with a dinner at the White House. Included were sons Eric, Donald Jr., daughter Ivanka, her husband Jared Kushner, and Trump’s grandchildren.
