Caller our family went from caller. Our family went from cotton to Congress in one lifetime and thats. Why? I believe the next american century can be better than the last. There are millions of families, just like mine all across this nation, full of potential seeking to lives. American dream and im here tonight to tell that you supporting the republican ticket gives you the best chance of making that dream a reality. Brian. He was supposed to be the headliner and man he knocked it out of park. South Carolina, Senator TIM Scott wrapping up night of Rnc, making his case for President Trump as the best choice for Americas future. He joins us now senator. What did you hope to accomplish with your speech and how were the reviews coming in about it, because what im hearing from almost every channel is rave reviews, it
was certainly a blessing to be part of the Trump team. Last night we have an amazing country. I love America, and today is my grandfathers, 99th birthday. I think about all the lessons I learned from that amazing man. One of the lessons he taught me to was to lean in to my country and lean in to what I believe in, I think without any question. President Trump has kicked off this convention by leaning in on the american family, wanting them to be passionate and to be expectant about whats possible in our future and thats. One of the reasons why I wanted to talk about the next personal century. If we have the right policies and the right person leading the country, we will break in to a full speed ahead approach, a warped speed ahead, because the best is yet to come. Brian, you know from Charlottesville to the civil unrest we are seeing here to George Floyd, the president, and you two have connected on some of the most critical moments over the last three and a half years, whats the president, like behind
the scenes, because a lot of people seem to have a knee jerk reaction like Bernie Sanders and say he is the most racist president we have ever had and thats, certainly the impression I got from watching the Dnc last week. What do you know? Brian? Let me say this: first, a racist president does not provide the highest funding for Hvcus in the history of the country, and he certainly does not make that funding permanent. A racist president does not take opportunity zones and provide up to seventy five dollars billion of private sector dollars for the most distressed people in the country. A racist president simply does not create seven million jobs and make sure two thirds of those jobs go to African Americans, Hispanics and women, but behind the scenes, maybe just as important as those policy positions, because you see the heart from whence it comes behind the scenes sitting with the president talking to the family members who had lost
their family member because of an interaction with the police watching the President be patient and listen and hear what they were saying, feel their pain and pandemic. Theisman with them was one of the most remarkable experiences I have had in the lifetime. Our president sat there for other an hour and listened to the victims, families and thats the president, a heart of what it makes to be a good president, Brian. By the way, there were no cameras there, you told me that offline you were moved by how the president moved and was a listener, real, quick, another situation now in Wisconsin, as we try to get to the bottom of this and the victim recovers with seven bullet wounds. Whats your message. My message is: we need to get to the bottom of it. The good news is, we have body camera footage that will help us out, or at least video footage to help us out. Most importantly, pray for the family
lets be patient for all the facts to come out so that we make a strong and clear determination about all the facts. This is a hard thick to ask in this country today, but it is necessary to know exactly what were talking about. First Brian Senator its hard for me to watch that speech and not think about two thousand and twenty four. Are you thinking about that right now running for president? Oh, no, absolutely not! Im thinking about two thousand and twenty and making sure that we have another four years of Donald Trump, Brian, okay, but youre not ruling it out, im, not ruling it in im, just ruling in the fact that we should spend every waking moment protecting this country by reelect. The President Donald Trump Brian Quick turn around. You are indeed a morning person and a.
