Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) acknowledged that his conversations with President Trump about race have been “painful” and “uncomfortable,” but insisted that the president has kept an open mind on the issue.
“They’re hard, they’re painful, they’re uncomfortable to sit in the Oval Office and have a conversation with the president about things that you strongly disagree about,” Scott told CNN’s Van Jones. “He didn’t change his perspective, I certainly can’t change my perspective.”
The article goes on to state the following:
But Scott also said that he was “hopeful” after the conversations.
“The way it closed I thought gave me reasons to be hopeful,” Scott recalled. “It closed with: ‘Tim I don’t see what you see. What can I do to make things better?’ ”
“That was a shocking response. I was surprised after the conversation that his response was: ‘Help me see a better light,’ ” he continued.
Scott added that it was after that interaction that Trump agreed to back his legislation creating “opportunity zones,” which seek to use tax incentives to draw investment to areas of the country with high poverty and low economic growth.
