Scott Campaign Press Release - Tim Scott: Hamas' Terrorist Attack Was An "Act Of Pure Evil"

October 08, 2023

CHARLESTON, SC – Today, Tim Scott joined Fox News Live to discuss Hamas' evil terrorist attacks on Israel, the need for a strong U.S. response, and Biden cuddling up with Iran.


Arthel Neville: If you were Commander in Chief, how would you handle Hamas' savage attacks on Israel? What kind of support would you be offering Israel?

Sen Scott: Let's just put this in context. Number one, 1,100 deaths in Israel is like 40,000 in America. Number two, this was an act of pure evil. I hope that Hamas is wiped off the face of the Earth. What I would do as Commander in Chief is make sure that Israel has all the assets and the support they need, number one. Number two, I would have constant conversations with Netanyahu to make sure that he knows that there is no daylight between our country and Israel. Number three, we've seen the Biden Administration cuddling up with Iran and distancing themselves from Israel. We saw that when Biden passed up an opportunity to meet with Israel.

I said yesterday that we should move the Sixth Fleet into the Mediterranean to have more support there. I'm glad to see that happening. I would also say that we need to make sure that our intelligence is working very closely with Israeli intelligence. And finally, humanitarian support, making sure that we are logistically in a position to be as effective as possible, especially now that we know there are American hostages. We, the United States of America, must regain the high ground by having a president who is strong, not one who is asleep at the wheel. And that's why I'm running.
