Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said over the weekend that President Joe Biden is the greatest threat to democracy that the U.S. faces — not former President Donald Trump.

Scott made the remarks during a Sunday ABC News interview with Jonathan Karl on “This Week” while talking about the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Scott said that he believes that any of the rioters who attacked police officers should face punishments for their actions.

“The question is for those nonviolent folks who sat outside, who actually simply protested or came into the Capitol because the doors were open, and created no crime, no challenges, those folks today sitting crime in pretrial. That’s a devastation,” he said. “Some of those have been in pretrial incarcerated for longer than the sentence attached to that crime.”

“The greatest threat to democracy today is Joe Biden,” he continued. “It started back when he became president. We saw a botched Afghanistan withdrawal where 13 Americans lost their lives. We’ve seen a wide-open, insecure, unsafe southern border with sleeper cells likely in our country, over 100,000 Chinese nationals crossing our southern border, men from Yemen, Iraq, and Afghanistan now populating our country. Part of the 10 million illegal immigrant invasion.”
