Subject: In-town pool report #1 - Trump comments on Scalise

President Trump just delivered brief remarks on House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and others wounded in yesterday's shooting at the top of his apprenticeship event in the Roosevelt Room.

As always, check quotes against transcript.

After visiting Scalise in the hospital last night, Trump said of his condition, "it's been much more difficult than people even thought at the time."

Trump said "he's in some trouble" but addded, "he's going to be OK, we hope."

POTUS said "America's hearts sends its love" to the Scalise family.

He reiterated his hope that the incident "brought some unity to this divided country."

He lauded the actions of Capitol Police and first responders.  "They saved a lot of lives."
