Tim Scott the lone African American Republican in the Senate — is scheduled to meet with President Trump Wednesday to discuss race and the white supremacist rally that turned deadly in Charlottesville, Va., reports Greenville Online.

Scott, who represents South Carolina, criticized the president’s weak response to events that resulted in the death of three people — including one young woman who was killed when a car drove through a crowd of counter-protesters.

“It’s going to be very difficult for this president to lead if, in fact, his moral authority remains compromised,” Scott said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” in mid-August.

Trump initially condemned the violence from “many sides” before calling out white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK by name, after two days of criticism. But one day later Trump doubled down on his previous stance, saying both the protesters and counter-protesters were to blame.

Scott also called on Trump to interact more with people of color.

    • Apparently, the White House thinks he’s a Uncle Tom too. Since the caption under the picture of him and #45, they referred to him as Tom instead of Tim. Subtle racism, and Tim Scott is a dunce for believing anything #45 has to say.
