Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said over the weekend that more and more black voters are supporting former President Donald Trump because of “jobs and justice.”

Scott made the remarks during a Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” while talking about how Trump and President Joe Biden are trying to win over black voters.

“Here’s what I can tell you, is that under Donald Trump, we were better off,” Scott said. “There are two things that are driving black votes back to Donald Trump, jobs and justice. Number one, under Donald Trump, our wages were going up. Right now, fairness is going down. But if you’re really concerned about racial justice in America, let’s not forget, Joe Biden is the guy that talked about racial jungles as a result of desegregation.”

“Let’s not forget the fact that Joe Biden is the president who said, ‘if you don’t vote for me, you can’t be black’, an old white dude telling me I can’t be black if I don’t vote for him,” he said. “This is the president who said that if — that the Republican Party wants to put you back in chains.”

“The only person I have seen restraining black folks economically is the Joe Biden economy,” he continued. “So, I find it quite insulting to suggest that Joe Biden does not have serious concerns, when his own vice president, Kamala Harris, said he supported segregation. And if you look in cities like Chicago today, the elimination of charter schools under Joe Biden resegregates schools in America. We need four more years of common sense under Donald Trump, and not four more years of segregation under Joe Biden.”
