“I get called Uncle Tom and the N word by progressives…I know firsthand, our healing is not finished,”-Senator of South Carolina, Tim Scott
Senator Tim Scott says in a GOP rebuttal of President Biden’s address to Congress, adding later, “Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country.”
After President Biden finished addressing Congress with two women behind in the first time in American history; GOP Senator Tim Scott fires back accusing Democrats of race baiting. “Race is not a political weapon to settle every issue the way one side wants,” says Senator Tim Scott.
Scott began his rebuttal on national television 15 minutes after President Biden wrapped up his joint session highlighting how America needs to end systemic racism and lethal white supremacy.
The African American Senator then began to praise former president Donald Trump for his work on Operation Warp Speed. Although critiquing Biden’s remarks, Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina has been instrumental in the GOP as the top negotiator for criminal justice reform making him a rare black conservative that has even spoken out against Donald Trump over race back in 2018 at the Charlottesville riots.
In conclusion, this obviously is a controversial issue due to Scott speaking how he has felt doscrimated against inside the Capitol.
