Tim Scott On Trump’s Legal Issues: Americans Care About Issues That Impact Them, Not Trump’s Court Battles | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said on Sunday that voters do not care about former President Donald Trump's legal woes because they are focused on issues that impact them.

    Scott made the remarks during a CBS News interview on "Face The Nation" with Robert Costa when asked about the amount of time that Trump is spending in the courtroom while on the campaign trail, and whether that would burden Republicans in the general election.

    "This has only exposed the two-tiered justice system that many Americans fear," Scott said. "You have a justice system that hunts Republicans, while protecting Democrats. Bob, one of the most compelling pieces of evidence towards this fact is Special Counsel Hur's report that said that absolutely without any question, Joe Biden mishandled classified sensitive material. At the same time, you have courts actually targeting and running after Republicans. Not just however, the former president, but whether it's pro-life activists or folks showing up at school board meetings, being referred to by this Department of Justice as domestic terrorists. We have a two-tiered justice system that is being exposed."

    Scott, when asked whether the Republican National Committee should be involved in helping Trump pay for his legal expenses, said: "I can only tell you that without any question, when you look at the two-tiered justice system that we have ... I think it's important for us to note that without any question, the American people are very concerned about how that would impact their lives."

    "Their issues are very clear by the way," he added. "The American people are more focused on their future than Donald Trump's past. What they're more focused on is making sure that our southern border is secured. We're looking at almost 10 million illegal crossings by the election. The American people aren't asking the questions about legal challenges. The American people are asking questions about economic challenges. When two-thirds of Americans according to a few polls, say that they don't have $1,000 in their savings account. Joe Biden's inflation has also increased interest rates that has decimated savings and investments for people living paycheck to paycheck. These are the top issues that Americans are talking about. They're not talking about legal challenges. They're talking about their challenges across a kitchen table."
