Sean Spicer gaggled with pool upon return to WH. Said Trumps met with Scalise doctors, including Ira Rabin, vice president for medical operations. They also talked to Scalise’s wife Jennifer.
Spicer: “He entered the room, spoke with Scalise’s family, and sat by his bedside with Mrs. Trump.”
They were accompanied to the hospital by Trump’s personal physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson. Jackson rode in the motorcade, but had been to the hospital to confer on Scalise earlier.
Melania offered the family a bouquet of the white flowers seen earlier by pool.
The first couple also met with Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner and her wife. They got the second bouquet of flowers.
Spicer said the first couple also talked to other Capitol Police who were at the hospital.
Dr. Rabin was seen accompanying the Trumps to the exit when they left.
Spicer noted that Trump does not plan to attend the congressional baseball game Thursday, out of security and logistical concerns.
“While the president would like to attend the game and show his support for all of these brave public servants, he has been advised that there is not enough time to follow Secret Service protocols.”
That’s all for now.
