The Congressional Baseball Game is to be played at Nationals Park on Thursday night, just a day after Rep. Steve Scalise was critically injured in a shooting during practice in Virginia.
The first update from the hospital came late Wednesday, indicating Scalise had undergone an initial surgery and a second procedure, in addition to receiving "multiple units of blood transfusion".
Adam Sharp is an ER doctor at Saint Vincent Hospital in Carmel.
After visiting Scalise Wednesday evening at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, Trump tweeted: "Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape - but he is a real fighter".
Medical staff also have removed a tube that had been inserted into Scalise's abdomen to prevent fluid from going into his lungs while he was sedated, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the congressman's medical status.
Gun control initiatives at the federal level have been so stymied by special interests in recent years that Democrats in Congress remained largely mute, the New York Times reports. But Sharp says the nature and location of the wound may have made it hard for a tourniquet to be effective.
Today, Richmond is leading the fight for better security protection for lawmakers after a gunman tried to end Scalise's life on a suburban baseball field on Wednesday.
"There's been quite a bit of attacking against the president", Mrs. Sanders said.
After being praised for his tone in Wednesday's speech, the president went on offense Thursday in several early-morning tweets, calling the news coverage of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation a "witch hunt" that was "led by some very bad and conflicted people!"
"It's a pretty good time for all, except for the fact that the Democrats beat us so much", Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said on CNN before describing what happened.
President Trump did not attend the game, due to security concerns according to the White House, but he did record a video message that was played before the game. The shooter later died from his injuries.
A law enforcement official says the gunman who wounded a top Republican congressman and several other people during an early morning baseball practice legally purchased his rifle and handgun.
After the hospital visit, Pence headed to Miami for a conference on Central America and meetings with the leaders of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

Police stood alongside the fence at the field where the women's team often gathers for early morning practices.
Even so, a poignant and immovable shadow cast itself over Thursday's annual congressional baseball game.
The Democrats beat the Republicans 11-2 in the friendly, but competitive, game.
