Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) called a new ad from President Biden’s campaign “insulting” and brought up the President’s controversial past comments.

The ad criticized former President Donald Trump’s record on race and said he “stood with violent white supremacists”.

The ad also said Trump “vowed to be a dictator who wants revenge on his enemies”.

Scott was asked to react to the ad on CNN’s “State of the Union”, where he said, “Well, here’s what I can tell you, is that under Donald Trump, we were better off.”

“There are two things that are driving black votes back to Donald Trump, jobs and justice. Number one, under Donald Trump, our wages were going up. Right now, fairness is going down,” he continued.

Scott also brought up controversial remarks Biden has previously made about the black community.

“Joe Biden is the guy that talked about racial jungles as a result of desegregation,” he said.

“Let’s not forget the fact that Joe Biden is the president who said, if you don’t vote for me, you can’t be black… an old white dude telling me I can’t be black if I don’t vote for him? This is the president who said that…the Republican Party wants to put you back in chains,” he added.

Scott then emphasized Biden’s policy on charter schools, which Scott compared to segregation.

“Joe Biden’s Department of Education has halted the growth of charter schools that provide greater diversity and opportunities,” Scott said.

“In the city of Chicago today, more black kids are not allowed to go to public schools in their own city. The president of the United States refuses to stand up to the teachers unions, and, as a result, the future of these kids will be lower and devastated.”

“The closest thing to magic in America is a good education and the place where you can’t find that is in blue cities, dominated by a monopoly on their city councils, where they refuse, refuse to allow poor kids, typically black, to attend public schools within their own cities,” he added.

Scott is reportedly one of the top contenders for Trump’s vice president pick.
