The congressional game, which dates to 1909 and is a summertime tradition on Capitol Hill, is a rare example of bipartisanship in an increasingly polarized Washington. That's why Democrats' and Republicans' decision to go ahead with their baseball game on Thursday in Washington is so welcome.

Gunman James Hodgkinson, from Belleville, Illinois, a home inspector, died after officers in Mr Scalise's security detail fired back at him. "And that camaraderie, I think, will be very positive as we go forward", Pelosi said at a press conference on Thursday.

Scalise's condition was upgraded to "serious", from "critical" after undergoing another surgery on Saturday, according to a statement from Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Since then, the lawmaker has undergone multiple surgeries and procedures to stop the bleeding and fix bone. "ONE FAMILY", proclaimed a sign in the crowd. Doctors didn't address what organs were damaged.

Steve Scalise, who was shot in the left hip, had surgery Thursday related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg.

Surgeons estimated that hundreds of bullet fragments remain in Mr Scalise's body. "Yes, he has additional operations he will need before he leaves the hospital". There was also a moment of silence for the victims of Wednesday's shootings.

"Rep. Scalise is a proud LSU alumnus and great supporter of the university, and we are proud to help out even in this small way", said LSU President F. King Alexander. The first said that he "remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours". Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times. Trump said Scalise "continues his very fearless fight", but added: "it's been much more hard than people even thought at the time".

For the second consecutive day, the Louisiana lawmaker continued to fight for his life and authorities continued to investigate the shooting - and the nation braced for every update. Scalise was hit as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice outside Washington D.C.

Scalise, 51, who represents a district in Louisiana and is the House majority whip, had previously been listed in critical condition.

The president's meaning was unclear as he made the comments at an event on Cuba policy in Miami.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., paid a visit to his injured colleague at the hospital Friday.

Scalise is being treated in the hospital's intensive care unit. Over social media he had lashed out at Trump and the GOP. He declined to describe specific internal injuries.
