(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Republican presidential candidate Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) stated on Friday that if elected into the White House he was going to finish the construction of the border wall that had begun during the Trump administration.
Scott in an appearance on Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” stated that as the U.S. president he was going to finish off the border wall and that he would sue all available technology to have full surveillance of the border and block the entry of fentanyl into the country. As he pointed out he was going to stop fentanyl from being the cause of death of another 70,000 Americans within a year.
The Senator proceeded to blame President Biden for the recent surge in illegal crossings and fentanyl deaths and blamed the U.S. government for failing to close the country’s southern border.
On Friday, Scott went on a visit to Arizona’s southern border. The visit occurred during a time when there has been a large increase in migrant arrests. As he argued, the situation currently occurring in America was preventable if the border wall was completed and technology was used to protect the U.S. border. He then encouraged the public to fire Biden and instead choose him as the President. The border wall had previously been one of the main points that former president Donald Trump had pushed during his 2016 presidential election.
This was the first time that Scott has visited the U.S. border not as a Senator but rather as a 2024 Republican candidate. He is not the only Republican candidate to stop at the border in the past few months with both Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley option to travel to the U.S. border earlier this year.
