President Donald Trump's is reportedly meeting with Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., this week in an attempt to reset the damage from his controversial response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Axios reported a "one-on-one meeting" with the Senate's only Republican who is African-American will be held Wednesday.

In the aftermath of Charlottesville violence, Scott had said Trump's comments had "compromised" his "moral authority" – and the president could "regain" it by sitting down with "folks who have a personal experience, a deep connection to the horror and the pain of this country's provocative racial history."

According to Axios, which cited unnamed sources, Scott had sought the meeting with Trump before Charlottesville – and hopes exposing Trump to new views will lead to a broader White House conversation on issues affecting minority communities.

He plans to tell the president his own story in "very personal" terms, and underscore how seriously he took what Trump said, and did not say, Axios reported.
