Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said President Donald Trump has "a number of flaws" but she supports many of his policies.

When asked about Trump's comments about women and the disabled, she said, "Would you say they're character flaws? I think it's more than character flaws. Well, and I think that we have a president that has a number of flaws," she said at a Tuesday town hall meeting in Iowa, according to KTIV in Wall Lake, Iowa.

She then said she and the president share the same opinions on a number of policy issues.

"I think I support a majority of the policies, versus the actual person, but I decry any time a person is ugly towards another person. I don't think that's appropriate," she said at the town , according to MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"We disagree on policies. But he was very nice to me, when I met him face to face," she added.

The Iowa Republican also suggested that the president spend less time at his Florida estate, especially when it comes to meeting with foreign leaders.

"With the trips to Florida, I do wish he would spend more time in Washington, D.C. That's what we have the White House for," she said. "We would love to see more of those State Department visits in Washington, D.C. I think it's smart that he does business in Washington, D.C."

The senator has been critical of the president before. "We don't have a record that we can judge him by," she said in February when asked about his conservative credentials.
