Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) said on Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show” that President Joe Biden’s recent decision to invite the United Nations to investigate racism in the U.S. is a return to the Barack Obama era sentiment that America is not an exceptional country.
Scott said, “It’s going back to the Obama, oh gosh, we are not a great country. We’re not exceptional. That’s exactly what this is.”
“Blinken, Biden, they don’t believe in the exceptionalism of this country. They don’t believe that we are the beacon of hope for the whole world,” he continued. “All they want to do is talk about the things that we have to work on.”
Scott admitted that America is not perfect, but said, “Look, there [are] things that we clearly need to work on. We’ve got to make sure everybody has an opportunity to live the dream of this country. But, if we’re so bad, why do people want to flock into our country?”
A country can be imperfect and still be great–the greatest country there ever was in the history of the world. America has offered more freedom and opportunity to its citizens than anywhere else in the world, and that’s something to build on, not to tear down.
