Trump's message for the Congressional Baseball Game

President Trump shared a videotaped message for those participating in the Congressional Baseball Game, which took place a day after a gunman opened fire on Republicans at practice.

"By playing tonight, you are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence or assaults on our democracy," Trump said in his remarks released Thursday night. "The game will go on."

The president also said that he would pray for those who were injured in the shooting, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. He thanked emergency responders for their assistance.

"And so on this special night, I leave you with three great American words that for generations have torn down barriers, built bridges of unity and defied those who have sought to pull us apart," Trump concluded. "Ladies and gentlemen, let's play ball."
