FILE - In a Nov. 16, 2016 file photo, Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., speaks to members of the media as he arrives for a closed-door Republican policy luncheon on Capitol Hill in Washington. Scott says Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017, that 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. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik, File)
