“I’d like to take this moment to send our thoughts and prayers to our courageous friend,” Trump said as whistles started blaring.
“Somebody that I’ve gotten to know very well, Steve Scalise, and everyone recovering from the assault,” he said, before being forced to pause.
As he watched the protesters being escorted out, Trump exclaimed, “Never fails, never fails.”
