Scott Campaign Press Release - In Case You Missed It...Tim Scott: You Have To Strike In Iran
Lester Holt: Senator Scott, you're the president. You're on the phone in the Oval Office with the Prime Minister. You tell him what?
Tim Scott: Number one I would tell Prime Minister Netanyahu, not only do you have the responsibility, the right, to wipe Hamas off of the map. We will support you, we will be there with you, will stand shoulder to shoulder. There will be no daylight. But I will change the station a little bit and head back home to America. I will say to President Biden, diplomacy only is a weak strategy. Appeasement leads to war from President Obama to President Biden. Obama sent millions to Iran. Frankly, President Biden has sent billions to Iran. That is why I've said that there's blood dripping from the hands of President Obama and President Biden. I would tell President Biden with great clarity, If you want to stop the 40 plus attacks on military personnel in the Middle East, you have to strike in Iran. If you want to make a difference, you cannot just continue to have strikes in Syria on warehouses, you actually have to cut off the head of the snake and the head of the snake is Iran and not simply the proxies. In order for us to have a powerful response from America, we have to be in a position of strength. As far as the United States, my foreign policy is simple. You cannot negotiate with evil. You have to destroy it as President of the United States.
