WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) – Sen. Tim Scott says President Donald Trump can regain his moral authority on the issue of race by spending time with people who have lived through the nation’s difficult racial past.
The South Carolina Republican said last week that Trump’s moral authority had become comprised after the president made comments that appeared to equate neo-Nazis and white supremacists with those who came out to oppose them in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Scott says what’s important at this point is not what Trump says next, but what he does.
Scott says that without a personal connection to the pain that racism has caused, he thinks it will be hard for Trump to regain that moral authority.
He spoke Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
