Chuck Schumer offers prayers to Mitch McConnell after hospitalisation

Chuck Schumer has offered Mitch McConnell his well-wishes after the Senate Minority Leader was hospitalised with concussion after a fall at a hotel.

The Kentucky senator was attending a private dinner in Washington on Wednesday, 8 March, when he tripped and fell, his spokesperson said.
