Biden Taught A Lesson

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) criticized a recent advertisement from President Biden’s campaign targeting Black voters, calling it “insulting.” During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Scott praised former President Trump’s record with the Black community.

Scott stated, “Under Donald Trump, we were better off. There are two things driving Black votes back to Donald Trump: jobs and justice. Under Trump, our wages were going up, but now, fairness is going down.”

The Biden campaign ad criticized Trump’s treatment of the Black community. The narrator of the ad said, “Donald Trump disrespecting Black folk is nothing new. He stood with violent white supremacists, warned of a blood bath if he loses the next election, and vowed to be a dictator who wants revenge on his enemies.”

Scott countered by highlighting Biden’s controversial past remarks. He referenced a 1977 comment where Biden mentioned that desegregation would create a “racial jungle,” and another remark from Biden’s 2020 campaign, telling radio host Charlamagne tha God that if he supported Trump, “then you ain’t Black.”

Scott added, “An old white dude telling me I can’t be Black if I don’t vote for him? This is the president who said the Republican Party wants to put you back in chains.”

Scott also accused Biden of supporting educational segregation without providing evidence. He argued that the Biden administration’s policies have limited the growth of charter schools, which he believes offer greater diversity and opportunities. Charter schools are tuition-free public schools backed by federal grants, receiving $440 million annually since 2019.

Debate persists over whether charter schools promote diversity or segregation. A recent study from Stanford University and the University of South Carolina found that segregation is increasing, partly due to the rise of charter schools, challenging Scott’s viewpoint.

Recent polls indicate that Biden is losing support among Black voters, a critical demographic for his reelection. A poll from the New York Times/Siena College/Philadelphia Inquirer showed Biden leading Trump among Black voters, 63 percent to 23 percent, a significant drop from the 87 percent who supported Biden in 2020.

Scott, who recently suspended his GOP presidential campaign, has been mentioned as a potential vice-presidential pick for Trump. He has campaigned alongside Trump in recent months and is expected to appear at an event with several major political donors next month.
