Tim Scott Calls Biden’s Remarks About African-Americans ‘Despicable’

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) spoke against President Joe Biden’s handling of race. During an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity,” he criticized past remarks by the president and makes a case that his failures show that he should not be put back in office.

Host Sean Hannity went down that route, saying, “This guy opposed the integration of schools and busing. He didn’t want public schools to be racial jungles. Could you imagine the outcry of any Republican presidential candidate if they ever said something that repulsive?”

In response, Scott pointed out that Biden has said “despicable” things “in the face of African-Americans.”

“The actions he has taken as a member of the most elite governing body as a senator, incredible, disgusting. Here’s what we know about Joe Biden and we know this about liberals and progressives, whenever they are on the losing end of a conversation, a competition or an election, they do one thing, they go to race and class,” he stated.”

“It’s all they know, it’s the party of division,” he added. “It is the game of fear, and it is disgusting. Sean, we know without any question, this is the president who allows our southern border to be wide open devastating the economic opportunities of people today living in poverty we know that this is a president who’s driven inflation to the highest levels since Jimmy Carter devastating African-Americans, Hispanics, women and the majority population.”

The former GOP presidential candidate went further, stating, “This is the president who has allowed our men and women in uniform to suffer through a commander-in-chief who seems to be asleep at the wheel, botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, war in Ukraine, conflict in the Middle East, and instability in the Indo-Pacific while we have an open southern border with thousands of Chinese, thousands of people from the Middle East coming across our southern border.”

He then accused Biden of trying to divert attention from his failure “as president and commander-in-chief of the greatest nation on God’s Green Earth.”

These reasons, Scott argues, are why he believes former President Donald Trump should be elected into the White House again come November.


Scott’s remarks come about a month after he said that Trump did more for minorities including African Americans than Biden will ever do.

Touting the GOP frontrunner’s past work on historically Black colleges and universities as well as the economy, unemployment and sickle cell anemia which disproportionately affects Black people, Scott stated, “Guess what? He’ll help white people and Black people and brown people. I mean, he likes everybody.”
