Congress Sends Trump Joint Resolution Condemning White Supremacy, KKK, Neo-Nazis

Congress Sends Trump Joint Resolution Condemning White Supremacy, KKK, Neo-Nazis

Scott's version of the meeting was at odds with a description given to reporters by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, in the White House briefing room.

President Trump sat down with Sen.

Trump had blamed the violence on "many sides" and initially declined to denounce the racist groups involved in the rally. He had also said the violence was perpetrated by "many sides".

Scott was careful to add that there was "no time of tension" in the meeting. "I think it's great for [Democrats and Republicans] to be able to make a moral call that white supremacy's not acceptable, and I want the president to have to sign it", Democratic Senator Tim Kaine, who drafted the resolution with Virginia Democrat Mark R. Warner, told The Washington Post.

"The president was clear in his initial statement that he condemns bigotry, hatred, racism of all forms", Sanders said. He continues to stick to that message.

"He's been very consistent in that fact", Sanders said of Trump's first comments. Scott wants to share his perspective as the sole black Republican senator and a southern lawmaker, according to a source with knowledge of the meeting. "I think a restoration of moral authority will be based on America's reaction, and that will take time".

President Donald J. Trump and Senator Tim Scott of SC met today to discuss the Administration's relationship with the African American community, the bipartisan issue of improving race relations, and creating a more unified country.

In the past, President Trump has been called out for his super long ties but now the news is on a recent Donald Trump suit faux pas: a blue suit jacket and black dress trousers worn together.

"We should all call that on the carpet", Scott said. She characterized their conversation as focused "primarily on solutions moving forward". "What we can do to bring people together, not talk about divisions within the country". Mr Trump defended Confederate monuments last month.

The joint resolution is supported by a range of civil rights groups, including the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Anti-Defamation League and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

The House version of the bill was introduced by Rep. Thomas Garrett (R-Va.) and Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.) and the Senate version was introduced by Sen.

The resolution describes Heather Heyer's death as a "domestic terrorist attack" and acknowledges two Virginia state troopers who died in a helicopter crash while monitoring the protests.
