In critical condition and undergoing repeated surgery, GOP House Whip Steve Scalise faces a "much more difficult" struggle to recover from his gunshot wound than first thought, President Donald Trump said Thursday.

"He will be in the hospital for a considerable period of time, presumably weeks", said Jack Sava, trauma director at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, who spoke Friday about the Louisiana Republican who remains in critical condition at the hospital in the District. He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones.

Family members of Matt Mika say the MI native was shot multiple times in his chest and arm, and he remains in the intensive care unit in critical condition at George Washington University Hospital.

Now, doctors are "encouraged in the improvement in his condition in the last 36 hours", Sava said. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

Zack Barth, an aide to Texas Rep. Roger Williams, was also shot but was treated and released from a hospital. After Scalise was shot in the hip, the bullet traveled through his pelvis, fractured bones and injured internal organs. Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalized. "Most importantly, we are forever grateful for the heroism of [Capitol Police officers] Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who saved everyone's lives at the baseball field that morning, including Steve's".

Sava said Scalise will require surgeries soon for abdominal and bone injuries, in addition to the two he has undergone to fix a bone in his leg broken by the bullet. Hodgkinson sprayed rifle fire at Republican congressmen on Wednesday as they practiced for a charity baseball game.

The FBI is still investigating the case and is looking through Hodgkinson's belongings, including his cellphone, computer and camera.

Scalise was fielding ground balls at second base when he was shot at a practice for the annual Republicans-Democrats baseball game.

Trump wasn't able to attend the event in person due to security protocols.

"We will not give in to fear, violence or hate", Aguilar said. But that was shattered by early reports that a shooter had opened fire on Republican lawmakers and staff at a baseball practice across the Potomac River in Virginia.

Trump and his wife, Melania, visited with Scalise late Wednesday.

The deciding factor will probably be Louisiana Democrat Cedric Richmond, who may be the best to have ever played in the game.
