Thursday also marks the one-year anniversary of the shooting during a GOP baseball practice in Washington, where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and others were hurt.
Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) invited Trump to attend the annual congressional baseball game Thursday night at the Nationals Park. "I asked him to come. I guess it was last week. I was over at the Oval Office," Williams said.
Williams said Trump responded with, "I'll be there." CBN News is waiting for the White House to confirm if the president plans to attend.
Meanwhile, President Trump got an early birthday present Wednesday when he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to bring peace with North Korea. More on that here.
And the man who's been working overtime to help secure that peace also wished the president a happy birthday. Here's what Secretary of State Pompeo said: "Happy birthday, President Trump! Susan and I wish you continued strength and fortitude as you work to advance the interests of the American people. I'm humbled to serve under your leadership on behalf of our nation."
