The resolution came as Trump met at the White House with South Carolina Senator Tim Scott—the only black Republican currently serving in the Senate—who has criticized the president over his comments on Charlottesville. Following a closed-door meeting with the president, Senator Scott indicated Trump had not expressed regret over his comments. The White House circulated a photo of Trump’s meeting with the senator, mislabeling his name as “Tom Scott” instead of “Tim Scott.”
