Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) unleashed a flurry of criticisms towards President Joe Biden (D) after former President Donald Trump (R) was officially arrested and arraigned on 37 federal counts for mishandling classified information.

In a tweet, Sen. Scott scolds the President for his openness to “demonstrate that [Trump] will not take power” through “legitimate efforts of our Constitution.”

In short, the President admitted to stopping Trump at any legal cost, even if that means another route that does not include an election victory.

“This indictment is about Joe Biden silencing and targeting his political opponents for personal gain. But don’t just take my word for it, read what Joe Biden said. Pay attention to the fact that he never says anything about keeping Trump out of the White House by winning an election…” stated Sen. Scott.

On June 8th, the day that Trump was officially indicted federally, Scott would even go as far as to call the United States a “Banana Republic.”

We have completely lost trust in the DOJ. The DOJ needs to come out tonight & explain how this is somehow different than what Hillary did. What Biden did. And this all happens on the same day Biden’s $5M bribe comes out. This is America & this sure looks like a Banana Republic.”

The Florida Senator also blasted President Biden for the recent labor statistics that came out which demonstrated a 16.3% increase in inflation since his inauguration.

Over the past year, all food prices on average have gone up 6.7%, electricity has gone up 5.9%, flour has gone up 17.1%, and baby food has gone up 10.1%.

“As I continue to travel around Florida and talk to folks, one thing that is top of mind for Floridians is how hard inflation is hurting them. For over two years now, inflation has been plaguing families’ bank accounts and forcing them to make tough choices like choosing between food on the table, saving for retirement, or putting money away for a rainy day,” stated Sen. Scott.

“It’s hard to think of a single way that people’s lives have improved under Joe Biden’s failed leadership. He is destroying our country with his radical political agenda that has eroded trust in our institutions and brought inflation to levels not seen in decades. American families deserve better and I won’t stop fighting to bring fiscal sanity back to Washington and stop Biden from bringing more harm to our country,” Scott concluded.

Republican Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy announced that if he were elected, he would pardon former President Trump if he were convicted. No other candidates have made a declaration either way.
