Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) suggested that former President Donald Trump could use a more put-together conduct on the campaign trail. During a Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the former GOP presidential candidate was asked about “personal attacks” Trump has launched against his main GOP political opponent, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

Anchor Dana Bash stated, “Senator, Donald Trump is launching some pretty personal attacks against Nikki Haley, who I know you have known for a very long time. He suggested she is ineligible to be president, even though she is. She was born in your home state of South Carolina. He repeatedly mocked her given first name, Nimarata, even though she has gone by her middle name, Nikki, her whole life.”

She then asked if Scott would prefer Trump not go down that route as he tries to reclaim the White House in the 2024 elections.

In response, Scott said that he “would like for all politicians to comport themselves in a way that is consistent with the highest office.”

He stated further that people say a lot of things on the campaign trail only to unite later. Calling for the Republican Party to consolidate around Trump, he said that attacks against each other should not be the focus.

“We should turn our attention to Joe Biden and to the American people and what they want. They want a better future. They want another American century. They want hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs across this nation,” he stated.

Calling for more important conversations, the lawmaker added, “When we start talking about the underlying issues and the principles that undergird human flourishing and what makes America the most exceptional country on the planet, then we’re having a conversation. That won’t happen until we get to the general election. That should start right now.”

Scott’s remarks come days after he endorsed Trump at a rally in New Hampshire on Friday.

Making a case that Trump is the country’s best option for unity and security, he said, “We need a president who will close our southern border today. We need Donald Trump. We need a president who will unite our country. We need Donald Trump. We need a president who will protect your Social Security and my momma’s social security.”
