“He’s a fighter,” Trump said of Scalise, offering the nation’s prayers to the those affected.
Trump addressed the testy political atmosphere in the United States:
“We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because above all, they love our country. We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of peace, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good.”
The president finished by imploring Americans to remember their loved ones in tough times.
