“He’s a nice enough guy, but he’s clearly a puppet for the Left,” asserted Senator Rick Scott about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden during a Monday press conference about the launch of the RNC convention.
Sen. Scott, who alongside Senator Marco Rubio have been the most outspoken critics of both the Cuban and Venezuelan regimes in the Western Hemisphere, expressed his disgust over the Obama administration’s foreign policy with Communist Cuba and Venezuela.
When Sen. Scott was asked to compare the Trump administration to the Obama administration in regards to their espective relationships with the Maduro regime in Venezuela, Scott said that Obama and Biden were “OK with a Communist military dictatorship in Cuba,” and that he found it “disgusting” that the Obama’s flew down to the island and sat and watched a baseball game with Raul Castro.
“Their approach to Cuba and their approach to Maduro has been the same, if you look at Maduro they never pushed back,” said Scott
Scott outlined how important he said the Venezuelan issue was to President Trump, pointing out the administrations efforts of imposing economic sanctions on Maduro and his regime, adding that Democrats had done “nothing” to “hold Maduro accountable.”
What’s frustrating to me is that Democrat’s don’t ever stand up against these people,” said Scott as he brought up the fact that his TPP proposal for asylum-seeking Venezuelans was “blocked” by Democrats.
Scott accused congressional Democrats of lying about this TPP in order to sink the proposal. saying that “Democrats don’t stand up for what we all believe in.”
They talk like they stand up for freedom and democracy around the world, but they clearly don’t stand up for it, so whether its Cuba or whether its Venezuela, they are not going to fight.”- Sen. Rick Scott
