Leave It To Trump To Run Away From His Leadership Role After Baseball Practice Shooting

On Wednesday during a congressional baseball practice, a gunman wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and four others before he was shot by Capitol Police officers. As a result, Donald Trump has decided not to attend the Congressional Baseball Game on Thursday.

ABC News reported on Wednesday, “NEW: Pres. Trump will not attend Congressional Baseball Game due to last-minute security requirements, White House official tells @ABC.”

Trump addressed the shooting during a statement delivered at the White House:

“We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country,” Trump said.

“We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace and we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good,” he added.
