Tim Scott: Use of Tear Gas and Rubber Bullets on Protesters ‘Was Unnecessary, Not Appropriate at All’

‘I believe that ultimately we should spend more time focusing how to help peaceful protesters’

RUSH EXCERPT
SCOTT:   "I would say no question the scene that I understand occurred from with the tear gas and rubber bullets was unnecessary, not appropriate at all. The president’s response was that he had no clue about that. I have to take him at his word. I believe that ultimately we should spend more time focusing how to help peaceful protesters exercise their rights. In my opinion people like John Lewis helped all of us recognize the systemic challenges we had in society that led us to a place where you and I can have this conversation."
