Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the only African American Republican in the Senate, on Monday afternoon criticized President Trump for using “unacceptable” and “racially offensive” language when he told four Democratic lawmakers of minority races to “go back” to the countries they came from.
“Instead of sharing how the Democratic Party’s far-left, pro-socialist policies — not to mention the hateful language some of their members have used towards law enforcement and Jews — are wrong for the future of our nation, the President interjected with unacceptable personal attacks and racially offensive language,” Scott said in a statement.
The article goes on to state the following:
“No matter our political disagreements, aiming for the lowest common denominator will only divide our nation further,” he added.
Scott issued his statement in response to the uproar over Trump’s criticism of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.).
