Scalise Defends Trump In New Orleans Speech

US-POLITICS-REPUBLICANS

Congressman Steve Scalise is speaking out in defense of President Trump in his first return to Louisiana since being shot during a congressional baseball practice 14 months ago.

Scalise spoke Wednesday at a Rotary Club of New Orleans event, jumping to the defense of the President after some criticized Trump's controversial manner.

The Republican said the Twitter version of the President is not the same person he sees in meetings, adding Trump is all business.

Scalise is facing five challengers in his bid for re-election, but is expected to easily win in November.
