Per ABC News:
Trump planned to make the stop past 8 p.m. ET to Medstar Washington Medical Center, where Rep. Steve Scalise, the number three House Republican, underwent surgery earlier Wednesday for wounds sustained in the shooting, which took place outside Washington.
The hospital said after the surgery that Scalise remained in critical condition. A US Capitol Police officer who was also hurt in the gun attack was also receiving treatment at the facility, situated about three miles northeast of the White House.
Ahead of his visit, a White House official said Trump may only be able to visit Scalise’s family, which has gathered at the facility, since the lawmaker himself remains critically ill.
It was first reported by Mark Knoller of CBS that Melania brought flowers to the Congressman.
Press pool told @FLOTUS accompanied Pres to the hospital and has brought flowers for Rep. Scalise, who had to undergo surgery today.
