President Trump condemned Wednesday’s congressional shooting and said the suspect, James Hodgkinson of Belleville,Ill., has died from his wounds.

“America is praying for all the victims of this terrible shooting,” Trump said from the Diplomatic Room in the White House.

The president said that while lawmakers have their differences, “we do well in times like these.”

 

Trump addressed the nation less than five hours after the shooting that wounded Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., and others at a baseball field in Alexandria, Va., just outside of Washington. Republican lawmakers were practicing for the annual congressional baseball game.

James Hodgkinson identified as the shooter.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump and Vice President Pence were notified shortly after the shooting and began to monitor events.

Before making his remarks, the president spoke with Scalise’s wife and chief of staff, as well as House Speaker Paul Ryan.
