Tim Scott Says Blacks Have Begun To Lean To The Right

After MSNBC’s “The View” hosts mocked him for his attempts to bring Black voters to the Republican Party, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that there is no Democratic Party without Black votes and that that demographic has begun to lean toward the Republican Party.

“Women of the View: My goodness gracious. Let me just be plain and simple. Without the Black vote, there is no Democratic Party. And since I was elected in 2010 to Congress, before that, no Black Republicans [in Congress]. But since then, there’s been seven,” he said.

Noting that “President Trump’s policies have led to a surge” of Black Republican political candidates taking office at the “city level, to the county level, to the state level, and in Congress,” Scott added, “We’re seeing Black city council members, we’re seeing Black assembly members all across this nation. There is a wave of Black elected officials who happen to be Republicans. But the Black vote is following. Why? Because we were better off under President Trump. We need four more years and I will tell you, it’s the end of the Democratic Party as we know it today.”

Scott went on to call for African Americans and other people of color to cross over to the right if they want to “stand against antisemitism, and stand for the American way, and stand for fairness and justice.”

“We are the party of Lincoln, the party of Reagan, the party of Trump, we are the party of freedom,” he concluded.

Scott’s remarks were in response to a claim “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin made on Friday that Scott was not making a strong case to convert more Blacks to the right.

“Just to speak for African-American voters. If anyone thinks that Tim Scott is going to bring over a bunch of Black men, they need to just get with it, because Tim Scott is the only African-American senator in the Republican Party for a reason,” Hostin stated.

Hostin’s remarks attempted to discredit Scott as a potential running mate for former President Donald Trump who is reportedly considering the Republican senator for the nomination.

In an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo in February, the GOP presumptive nominee mentioned Scott as well as South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem when he spoke about criterias he was looking out for in a running mate.
