President Donald J. Trump’s Weekly Address On Shootings & Apprentice Programs

Washington, DC...My fellow Americans, This week, our nation was shocked and horrified when a gunman opened fire on a Member of Congress. Five people were wounded in the assault, including a member of House Leadership – my good friend, Steve Scalise. Steve is beloved across Washington, he embodies everything public service is about – he’s dedicated to his constituents, devoted to his values, and deeply committed to his country. I visited Steve, his wife, and his family in the hospital as he continues to fight for his recovery. 435 Members of Congress, and 300 million Americans, are pulling for him, praying for him, and pledging to him our full and total support.

We continue to hold all of those wounded and fighting for recovery in our hearts and prayers, including Matt Mika, who was also badly wounded.

In that terrible crime, we also witnessed the incredible heroism of Capitol Police. Special Agent Crystal Griner – who I also had the honor of meeting during my visit to the Hospital – raced into gunfire, along with Special Agent David Bailey. They saved the lives of our Members of Congress and prevented that dark day from becoming a tragedy beyond imagination. They, like so many other courageous police officers, represent the very best of us. We salute them, and we also salute members of Alexandria Police, Fire and Rescue.

Though we have our differences, what unites us is so much stronger: our love of country, our devotion to its people. Now more than ever, these values must guide us – and bring us closer together. Let us always remember that our job is to serve and represent the whole American People – and that we are all children of the same God.

This week, my Administration continues our focus on providing economic opportunity for all.

On Thursday, I signed an Executive Order to launch a groundbreaking new Apprenticeship Initiative that will help young Americans learn the skills they need to find a rewarding career, earn a great living, and support themselves and their families.

We are celebrating the dignity of work and the greatness of the American Worker.

American citizens have worked every job, every occupation, no matter what it might be – no matter how grueling, how challenging, or even how dangerous. They wash the windows on our tallest skyscrapers; they create works of art from burning fire and molten steel; they mine the earth and dive the ocean depths to bring energy into our cities and towns; they care for the sick, the elderly, and the wounded; and they lay the bricks, mortar, rebar, and concrete that give us places to live, to work, and to thrive.

Today, this is the message I want every young American to hear: there is dignity in every honest job, and there is nobility in every honest worker.

Our Apprenticeship Initiative will make it dramatically easier for employers, industry groups and unions to create exciting new apprenticeship programs that place students into high-paying careers.

Instead of being racked with crushing student debt, those who participate will earn while they learn – think of that: earn while they learn.

Under our plan, young Americans will have a pathway to exciting and fulfilling careers. They will become brilliant technicians who revitalize American manufacturing. They will become welders who forge from fire amazing works of iron and steel and art. And they will become entrepreneurs who revolutionize entire industries. And these striving American citizens, including millions of talented young American women with tremendous potential, will become the programmers who change the world with the next great technological advance.

Every American deserves a path to a great job that they truly love. That begins with the right education – one that gives students the foundation for a lifetime of success.

Every day, as your President, I will be committed to this goal.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.

      WASHINGTON (AP) -- A voicemail message directed to Arizona Rep. Martha McSally last month warned "our sights are set on you, right between your ... eyes." Another voicemail said: "Yeah, Martha, your days are numbered and next time you show your face in Tucson it might be the last time."

      McSally, a Republican in her second term, forwarded the messages to U.S. Capitol police, resulting in federal charges against an Arizona man.

      Since the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise at a Virginia baseball field Wednesday, members of Congress have spoken more freely about how threats of physical violence or death have increased in recent months, leaving lawmakers fearing for their safety as well as the safety of their families and staff.

      "I've never been so shaken," said Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.

      The Scalise shooting "hits so close to home," Cramer said. "We've all been under this cloud for a while of aggressive social media and threat assessments and thinking about families and whatnot and just trying to determine ... is it even worth it" to continue to serve in Congress.

      Answering his own question, Cramer said "of course it is," but said Scalise's shooting and threats against fellow lawmakers "does cause contemplation at a level I haven't had since I've taken this job."

      "At this point I think that presence is a requirement to participation" Cramer said, pointing out that it's not just his safety at risk - it's everyone who attends. "So if people don't feel safe coming to see us, we're robbed of that opportunity. I love the interaction so we have to think of all that."

      At Cramer's events, attendees sign in but are not screened for weapons.

      Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Mo., said she has received five death threats this spring and watched children in her suburban St. Louis neighborhood scrub away chalk outlines of dead bodies that had been drawn on the driveway of her home.

      The children replaced them with happy faces. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch first reported the threats against Wagner.

      Shortly after Wednesday's shooting, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., received an email with the subject line: "One down, 216 to go ..."

      The voicemails left with McSally's congressional office resulted in a federal grand jury charges against Steven Martan, 58, of Tucson. The charges state that Martan threatened to assault and murder a U.S. official, McSally, with the intent to interfere and intimidate her while she was engaged in performance of her official duties.

      The threats, while extreme, are becoming increasingly common, according to members of Congress.

      Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-Va., said lawmakers laid out threats they've received during a closed-door meeting following Wednesday's shooting. Congressional leadership and the House Administration Committee are looking at what can be done to increase security because of so many death threats.

      "Some of this is really nasty - people wishing ill things on you - but it's crossed the line now into quite a few death threats," Comstock said.

      Rep. Ralph Abraham, R-La., said violence - and the threat of violence - has no place in politics.

More platitudes from the Liar in Chief. Instead of POTUS we should call him LOTUS (Liar of the United States).

    I think you are suffering from the Democrat Derangement Syndrome. This shooting is a result of your lying ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Rachael Madcow, Bill Maher and the other so-called journalist and TV celebs. Can't leave out good ole Stephen Colbert too. This bunch are inciting violence and hatred. This BS with Russia and Trump has no basis except in the imaginations of the alt-left. F U

Orange face, blond or silver hair depending on the day. Tiny hands. 45lbs of excess body fat. Cottage cheese in the thighs. And more crap that pours out his mouth and fingers tips than anyone knew was possible. The ultimate stereotypical America idiot. Breathtaking.

    Well if Hillary was not so corrupt she would of been President.
    You have to admit, the above statement about Hillary, the Clinton Foundation with foreign donations, all of those donations ceased, as in, stopped, not one red cent was donated to the Clinton Foundation the second it became clear she lost the presidential race. That was a clear indicator that Hillary is as crooked as a barrel full of barbed fish hooks. How pathetic is it to lose the presidential race to this MORON? One really has to be *bleeped* up, and as guilty as sin to lose to this huge jerk.
    Way to go Hillary, you fooled millions of Americas dimmest, and RETARDED FOOLS who voted for you, but our electors picked the better of two evils.
    Sad day in America to have Trump as our Commander In Chief, but if we had Hillary, America would of been DOOMED.

      More fake news. Clinton Foundation is doing fine. And the Clinton Foundation did not pay any of the Clinton's a salary. It is a charity.

      On the other hand, Trump is being sued for violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution by enriching himself through the office of the president.

      In smaller words, here is the truth: Hillary never made money from the Clinton Foundation. Trump is personally making money from foreign governments and others as his businesses market his being President.

      Lying Crooked Trump!
