Steve Scalise thanks world leaders, but not Trump, in emotional return to House

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise thanked a number of world leaders during his emotional return to the Capitol Thursday, but President Trump was not among them. Scalise spent time to thank Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, British Prime Minister Theresa May, and Jordan’s King Abdullah in his remarks before the House. He also thanked colleagues from both sides of the aisle, people in the public who donated blood, and the Capitol Police officers in his security detail who returned fire at the shooter during the June incident in Alexandria, Va.
