Tim Scott: I Will Be The President That Finishes The Wall
In a fiery interview with Fox News, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) said he will finish the border wall if elected president, going all out to criticize the Biden administration’s handling of the U.S. southern border.
Standing at the border itself on a recent visit, which was his first since entered the presidential race, he pointed out the stark difference between the situation in 2019 and the present, putting the blame squarely on President Joe Biden.
“When you have a president who unleashes a wide-open, unsafe, insecure border, we cannot be surprised by more than six million illegal crossings,” Scott passionately stated.
He went on to express deep concern for the 70,000 Americans who have tragically lost their lives due to fentanyl, emphasizing that closing the southern border is crucial to prevent such “preventable” deaths.
A Republican presidential candidate, Scott outlined his commitment to securing the border and protecting American lives. “As President of the United States, I will finish this wall and I will use the available technology to surveil our border to stop fentanyl from killing another 70,000 Americans in the next 12 months,” he declared.
The senator went on to say that he “will be the president that finishes the wall and takes seriously the opportunity to save tens of thousands of Americans from the drug of fentanyl.”
“The devastation that we are experiencing as Americans is preventable — much of it is preventable if we finish the wall, use technology, fire Joe Biden, and hire me,” he stated.
In a post on Twitter, he also committed to ending the cartels “before they end more American lives”

Undeterred by recent polls, the GOP presidential candidate expressed optimism and excitement about the support he is receiving from Iowa.
“What I’m excited about is in Iowa, we’re already in third place,” he said, adding, “We continue to see our poll numbers move. What we are understanding every single day is that the voters in Iowa want an optimistic, positive message anchored in conservatism — as long as you have a backbone. The more we meet people, the more excited we are about the future of this campaign.”
