On Tuesday, Congress passed a joint resolution condemning the deadly "domestic terrorist attack" and other violence perpetrated in August by far-right extremists in Charlottesville, Virginia.

While some people said the issue was a "petty" one to point out, one person said: "I don't think we're asking too much for him to dress like a president". "I said, 'You've got some very bad people on the other side, which is true'".

Scott has been outspoken on issues of racism but supportive of the president's low-tax economic agenda. Tim Scott of SC, who drew notice in the wake of Charlottesville for saying that Trump's response had "compromised" the president's "moral authority".

At that time, Scott offered some of the bluntest criticism of Trump's Charlottesville reaction.

President Trump has committed the ultimate style crime: wearing a mismatched suit. Graham's demand provoked a Twitter response from Trump.

Scott continued: "I shared my thoughts of the last three centuries of challenges from white supremacists, white nationalists, KKK, neo-Nazis, so there is no way to find an equilibrium when you have three centuries of history". He can't forget about his election trouncing. "He and the senator talked about that and discussed that and agreed that was the appropriate place to be". "I'll let him discuss how he feels about it, but he was certainly very clear that the perception that he received on his comments was not exactly what he intended with those comments", he told CBS News afterwards. Hmm.

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. "But the focus was primarily on solutions moving forward".

Lawmakers from Virginia said Congress spoke with "a unified voice" to censure the violent unrest. Separately, Scott said Trump appeared amenable to the senator's "Opportunity Agenda", a slate of bills aimed at improving access to education and apprenticeships.
