Trump makes hospital visit after congressional baseball shooting

Posted June 14

President Donald Trump planned to pay a visit to the US congressman who was critically wounded Wednesday at baseball practice outside Washington, a White House official said.

Trump planned to visit Rep. Steve Scalise at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, where the number three House Republican underwent surgery earlier Wednesday for wounds sustained in a shooting at the Republican practice for a charity congressional baseball game that morning. However, an official said Trump may only meet with Scalise's family, because the congressman may not be well enough for a visit.

The visit was set to take place after 8 p.m. ET.
