“We will use this occasion to bring us together and not separate us further,” the House Minority Leader declared.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took to the House floor on Wednesday in a show of unity with Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) to deliver her thoughts and prayers to those who were involved in the shooting in Alexandria, VA.
“Again, we’re not one caucus or the other in this House today, but we speak for each other in saying that we send our thoughts and prayers to our colleague, Steve Scalise,” Pelosi told the chamber.
“I want us to remember every single day the Capitol Police protect all of us, takes risks for us, and while a day like this is a time when we can focus on it so sadly, it doesn’t mean that other days are not as challenging,” Pelosi added.
“It seems…particularly sad that at a time when people want us to come together, and we’re prepared to come together tomorrow night, that this assault would be made,” Pelosi said. “We cannot let that be a victory for the assailant or anyone that would think that way. So tomorrow we’ll go out on the field. We’ll root for our team and [for] everyone to do his or her very best, and we will use this occasion to bring us together and not separate us further.”
