U.S. President Donald Trump, who was in the eye of storm last month for his failure to single out white supremacists for violence at a Charlottesville rally, reignited the controversy on Thursday as he reverted to blaming “both sides” for the incident.  

Trump’s remarks came as he responded to the reporters over his meeting with South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, the only African American Republican in the Senate, writes The Guardian.

Scott’s office reacted with a statement that said, “Rome wasn’t built in day,” and that it was “unrealistic” to expect the President to mold his views based on one 30-minute meeting, notes the BBC.
