Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the U.S. Senate’s sole African American Republican member, affirmed his support for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

While Scott was a bit apprehensive after the Judge Curiel comments made by Trump, Scott believes Trump is best fit to lead the country. “I think he’s done a good job in the last 24 hours of realizing the impact of those comments. I think it shows real leadership when he takes responsibility and walks those comments back. I think that’s a good direction, a new direction frankly and one that I am pleased with,” Scott told CNN after Trump clarified his comments.

“I’m not living in a silo,” Scott said. “The reality of it is, we have the impact of Trump’s policies and positions compared to Hillary Clinton’s policies and positions, and I am entirely convinced the country is better off under the policies and positions of the Republican Party than they are under the Democratic Party.”
