(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited Congressman Steve Scalise, the No. 3 Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, who was in critical condition on Wednesday (June 14) night after he and three others were shot as they practiced for a charity baseball game. "Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape - but he is a real fighter. Pray for Steve!" Trump said on Twitter after visiting the MedStar Hospital Center in Washington D.C on Wednesday night. The gunman, who had posted angry messages against President Donald Trump and other Republicans on social media, opened fire on a group of Republican lawmakers and colleagues at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, outside Washington. He was wounded in a gunfight with Capitol Hill police at the scene and later died. Scalise was shot in the left hip, suffering broken bones, injuries to internal organs and severe bleeding. He underwent surgery but would need further operations, the hospital said.
