  • A vigil in response to the death of a counter-demonstrator at the'Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville outside the White House in Washington DC

The measure now goes to Trump, who was criticized for his response to violence at a white nationalist rally last month in Charlottesville, Virginia. Tim Scott, the President told reporters on Air Force One that many people have said he had a point when he stated that there was "blame on both sides".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders later added that Trump and Scott had an "in depth" discussion about the Charlottesville comments, "but the focus was primarily on solutions moving forward".

The White House released a photo of the two but people quickly noticed Trump was wearing a navy blue suit jacket with black slacks.

It also urges Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate acts of violence and intimidation by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and similar groups. "And I have no doubt about it, and you don't have any doubt about it either".

Boris Johnson said only £4m remained of a £32m relief fund after troops and police were sent to the area. He is 55-year old Derek Ragnath, formerly of Mahaica Public Road near the police station.

Scott said "I think I was clear before we met and I was clear while we met" about how he felt Trump handled the violent rally in Charlottesville, Va., last month.

The White House issued a statement following the meeting, which included Vice President Mike Pence and other aides, that avoided mentioning Charlottesville or the President's contentious comments.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides", Trump commented from his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., the afternoon of the rally.

Poverty, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and issues affecting minority communities will also be discussed, the source told NBC NEWS.

As the only black Republican in the Senate and the first African-American elected to statewide office in SC since Reconstruction, Scott's perspective has drawn acute attention in the aftermath of the Charlottesville incident.

Assuming that Trump ultimately approves the resolution, it would be the second time that Congress has strong-armed the president.

Details about their conversation were not discussed publicly, however Sanders said it was "certainly a conversation that Sen".

Mr. Trump has offered constantly shifting statements about Charlottesville, alternately condemning the hate groups and declaring a moral equivalence between them and the counter-protesters.

That would allow them to bypass a Senate filibuster and pass a bill on a partisan basis. But other firms-"entities that do create jobs", Mnuchin said-may still qualify.

Scott, the first African-American senator to represent the South since Reconstruction, was unsparing in his criticism of the president after the Charlottesville violence, telling reporters that he would not "defend the indefensible".
