Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) criticized Gov. Ron DeSantis on Florida’s new teaching standards around slavery — “and effectively guaranteed that the Florida governor would see it figure into his coverage for several more days,” Politico reports.
Said Scott: “There’s no silver lining in slavery. Slavery was really about separating families, about mutilating humans and even raping their wives. It was devastating… I would hope that every person in our country — and certainly running for president — would appreciate that. And listen: People have bad days. Sometimes, they regret what they say. And we should ask them again to clarify their positions.”Save to Favorites
