Scott’s name has been in the news since he could become the next VP of this country. But he’s been dealing with other business lately.

And Tim Scott went on Fox News and started throwing punches.

Tim Scott on Monday took aim at The View for teasing him for his leadership in converting Black people to the Republican Party, stating they were beginning to lean Republican after decades as loyal Democrats.

“Women of the View: My goodness gracious. Let me just be plain and simple. Without the Black vote, there is no Democratic Party,” Scott said on Hannity on Monday.

“And since I was elected in 2010 to Congress, before that, no Black Republicans [in Congress]. But since then, there’s been seven.”

According to Scott, “President Trump’s policies have led to a surge” of Black Republican political candidates obtaining office at the “city level, county level, state level, and in Congress.”

“We’re seeing Black city council members, we’re seeing Black assembly members all across this nation,” he stated.

“There is a wave of Black elected officials who happen to be Republicans. But the Black vote is following.”

Sunny Hostin, co-host of The View, stated Friday that Scott did not make a convincing argument for Black conservatives.

This could be because Scott got under Hostin’s skin last year when he contradicted her opinions on the show about systematic racism.

“Just to speak for African-American voters,” Hostin explained. “If anyone thinks that Tim Scott is going to bring over a bunch of Black men, they need to just get with it, because Tim Scott is the only African-American senator in the Republican Party for a reason.”

Scott is one of the candidates that former President Trump is apparently considering for his running mate in the 2024 race. Scott sought for the Republican candidacy, but dropped out before the Iowa caucuses and later endorsed Trump.

In an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo in February, Trump mentioned Scott and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem while discussing the qualities he was seeking for a potential running mate.

“Why? Because we were better off under President Trump. We need four more years and I will tell you, it’s the end of the Democratic Party as we know it today,” Scott said.

“For African Americans, Hispanics, there’s no place in the Democratic Party if you want to stand against antisemitism, and stand for the American way, and stand for fairness and justice, you must join the GOP. We are the party of Lincoln, the party of Reagan, the party of Trump, we are the party of freedom,” he said.

Recent polls show that Biden’s campaign is seeing a worrying trend with Black voters.

According to a Wall Street Journal study released this month, 30 percent of voters in seven battleground states would choose Trump, a significant rise over his performance against Biden in 2020. A Washington Post-Ipsos poll released last month also found that Black Americans’ enthusiasm to vote had decreased since the last presidential election.

Scott also chastised President Biden for not backing Israel in its fight against Hamas.

“President Biden: find a spine and a backbone,” he stated. “Stand for our allies. Be loyal to our allies and be lethal to our collective adversaries.”
