Senator Tim Scott says Trump has "obviously reflected" on his Charlottesville comments

Congress has backed a resolution condemning white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other hate groups following a white-nationalist rally in Virginia that descended into deadly violence.

It also urges President Donald Trump and his administration to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, "extremism", xenophobia, anti-Semitism and white supremacy.

"The real picture has nothing to do with who is on the other side", Scott explained following the meeting, according to The New York Times.

The president will sign a joint resolution from Congress condemning the Charlottesville violence as domestic terrorism and rejecting white supremacists, Sanders said.

Baghdad has repeatedly criticized the move and the Iraqi Parliament has already voted against the referendum. They regard the city, just outside their Kurdistan region in northern Iraq, as their historical capital.

White House officials emailed reporters a photograph of Trump Wednesday afternoon listening "intently" to Scott's argument. The joint resolution follows Trump's controversial response to the Charlottesville violence, which did not place blame exclusively on any involved group and referred to some white nationalists as "very fine people". Once he did condemn them, 48-hours after the attack, he quickly dialed back on those statements during a press conference in which he blamed "both sides" for the violence.

When Scott was asked about Sanders' comment in his office later Wednesday, he said: "I certainly started my comments on why I found the president's comments unsettling and went over his comments". The White House misidentified him as Tom Scott.

"President Trump remains committed to positive race relations and looks forward to continuing the dialogue with Senator Scott, the African American community, and leaders from diverse communities across the country, all of which have a wealth of perspectives and experiences with respect to this issue", the statement said.

"I think some people limit my experience and my service, outside the state particularly, to being the face for the black conservative movement", Scott said in an interview earlier this year.

Warren, Harris and Booker are widely considered to be top contenders for the 2020 democratic presidential nomination. No Democrat would run for president, or even for House or Senate minority leader, without supporting the DREAM Act.

Trump asserted there were good people on "both sides" of the Charlottesville rally and bemoaned rising efforts to remove Confederate monuments as an attack on America's "history and culture", drawing widespread condemnation.

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

Last month, the United Nations issued a rare warning over what it called "alarming" racism in the US.
