WASHINGTON (AP):
President Donald Trump is calling for unity after a shooting that injured a top House Republican leader.

Trump says in a televised statement from the White House that while the political parties may have their differences, it's worth remembering that everyone who serves in Washington is here because they love the United States.

Trump says everyone can agree that we are "blessed to be Americans" and that we are strongest when "we work together for the common good."
