WATCH: Tim Scott argues Biden has failed to “unite a nation,” says he and Democrats “are pulling us further apart”

During his Republican response to President Biden’s address to Congress, Senator Tim Scott accused Biden of failing to “unite a nation”

“We just heard President Biden’s first address to Congress. Our president seems like a good man.His speech was full of good words,” Scott said. “But President Biden promised you a specific kind of leadership. He promised to unite a nation. To lower the temperature. To govern for all Americans, no matter how we voted. That was the pitch. You just heard it again. But our nation is starving for more than empty platitudes. We need policies and progress that bring us closer together.”

Scott then argued Biden and Democrats “are pulling us further apart.”
