Tim Scott Speaks Out on Trump Legal Issues

On Sunday, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) stated that voters are preoccupied with matters that directly affect them and are therefore unconcerned with the legal troubles of former President Donald Trump.

Scott uttered the statements in response to a question on “Face The Nation” with Robert Costa of CBS News, wherein he was questioned regarding the extent to which Trump’s campaign-related court appearances would burden Republicans in the general election.

“This has only exposed the two-tiered justice system that many Americans fear. You have a justice system that hunts Republicans, while protecting Democrats. Bob, one of the most compelling pieces of evidence towards this fact is Special Counsel Hur’s report that said that absolutely without any question, Joe Biden mishandled classified sensitive material. At the same time, you have courts actually targeting and running after Republicans.” Scott said.

“Not just however, the former president, but whether it’s pro-life activists or folks showing up at school board meetings, being referred to by this Department of Justice as domestic terrorists. We have a two-tiered justice system that is being exposed.” he continued.

He was then asked if the RNC should assist Trump with his legal bills, to which he replied:

“I can only tell you that without any question, when you look at the two-tiered justice system that we have … I think it’s important for us to note that without any question, the American people are very concerned about how that would impact their lives.”

“Their issues are very clear by the way. The American people are more focused on their future than Donald Trump’s past. What they’re more focused on is making sure that our southern border is secured. We’re looking at almost 10 million illegal crossings by the election. The American people aren’t asking the questions about legal challenges.” Scott continued.

“The American people are asking questions about economic challenges. When two-thirds of Americans according to a few polls, say that they don’t have $1,000 in their savings account. Joe Biden’s inflation has also increased interest rates that has decimated savings and investments for people living paycheck to paycheck. These are the top issues that Americans are talking about. They’re not talking about legal challenges. They’re talking about their challenges across a kitchen table.” he concluded.
