US president Donald Trump has visited critically-ill party whip Steve Scalise, who was shot by a rifle-wielding attacker as he practised for a charity baseball game.
Mr Trump spoke to the House of Representatives majority whip's family during a visit to MedStar Washington Hospital Centre on Wednesday evening.
The president and his wife Melania spent about half an hour at the hospital, where White House press secretary Sean Spicer described the scene in the intensive care unit as "emotional".
Mr Spicer said the president was also briefed by Mr Scalise's medical team, met Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner, who was shot in the ankle during the attack in Alexandria, Virginia, and thanked police who gathered at the hospital......

This is getting really bad.
Civil War kind of bad.
Scalise is a better guy than we give him credit for. Trump’s best friend in our pitiful House Leadership (faint praise indeed).
President Trump is a good man..God Bless him..and God Bless Steve Scalise and his family..he is a fighter and he will win this battle
That doofus chick on Fox giving Gingrich a hard time for laying it on the left made me rage.
Also pray for our country.
I’ve read AR-15
Appears to have been a plain jane SKS. Probably Chinese made.
Good little rifles.
Another article says M-4 so idk..
The look on the Secret Service guys face says it all. This is getting real.
Yep, they see the Left Wing as a serious threat against the President of the United States.
“This is getting really bad. Civil War kind of bad.”
Today the first shots of the Second American Civil War were fired. And just like last time, a Democrat pulled the trigger.
Aside, I remember how mad I was when Obama’s Homeland Security listed white militias as America's greatest threat. Really?
I have forbodings that it will get alot worse. I wish Trump could just stay out of public. Some leftist is going to get him. And I dont trust the Secret Service to anything about it.
CNN’s Acosta claimed that Trump didn’t actually see the Congressman while at the hospital. Got busted on Twitter for that and had to blame his “error” on a false pool report... which was a lie because the pool report was correct from the start.
That doofus chick on Fox
There are so many.
Yeah, it’s damn ugly. But we’re not helpless bystanders limited to the ultimatums of civil war.
The “optics” of contempt for Trump are driven primarily by the MSM — the voice of the owning corporations — corporations you may depend on.
