"We may have our differences but we do well in times like these ... everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because above all they love their country", said Trump.
"We feel so deeply about the things that we fight for and the things we believe in ... but we do not shed our humanity when we enter this chamber", he said. "And we are united".
"We are united in our shock, we are united in our anguish", Ryan said.
Katko, R-Camillus, said he was in the House gym when Capitol Police showed up after 7 a.m. with an emergency escort for House Speaker Paul Ryan, who was also in the gym. Yet it was something the Speaker said later that drew further attention to his emphasis on unity, a subject he may have adapted from the president's prepared statement earlier.
Speaker Ryan addressed Congress after the attack on congressmen and senators at the congressional baseball practice Wednesday.
"I'm hopeful today's events create an opportunity for all Americans to stop and think about the level of political discourse in this country", said Rep. Richard Hudson, a Republican from North Carolina who had been on his way to bible study when he heard the news. "Whether or not that contributed to this, I don't know".
"Every day, we come here to test and challenge each other. And so I pray for Barack Obama, and now I continue to pray for him", Pelosi said.
True, but the shooting is a reminder to those of us who have warned of Trump's incitements to violence that there are deranged people of all ideologies who can be inflamed by angry rhetoric. Sen. "It is that humanity which will win the day, and it always will".
Pelosi said that in recent years, she has started praying for safety. We are all imperfect.
The second-term congressman said he joined Republicans and Democrats at the Capitol after the shooting, where members of Congress held hands in prayer for the victims. He says, "They ran right into the fire" and saved a lot of lives.
The vice president also sought prayers for Rep. Steve Scalise and a Capitol Police officer who was shot Wednesday while defending Scalise and Republican colleagues from a shooter as they practiced for an annual charity baseball game Thursday night.
