Last week, Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) took to the Senate floor in support of Senator Mike Braun’s (R) Pledge of Allegiance resolution. With unanimous consent, the resolution passed the Senate.

While on the floor, the former Florida Governor voiced his support, arguing that “the left is trying to undo the foundational principles of this country, but freedom is fleeting and worth fighting for, and I won’t stop fighting for the country I was raised in.”

Speaking on the important of the Pledge of Allegiance, Braun commented that “the Pledge of Allegiance is meant to remind Americans of our guiding principles and inspire adherence to those ideas which make our country great: Equality under law, and recognized rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

In response, Florida Senator Scott took to Twitter to share his own comments on the Senate floor, saying that Democrats “are calling to defund our law enforcement” and “the left discredits those that believe in a supreme being,” and “they want you to think America was never great.”

However, he asserted that, “today, we join to honor the Pledge of Allegiance, the very spirit of our nation. One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

The rest of his speech can be viewed below:
