Just a few weeks after dropping out of the presidential race, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) introduced the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act alongside Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).

The legislation protects child welfare providers should they face discrimination for their religious beliefs. The act “prohibits federal, state and local government agencies that receive federal adoption assistance funding from discriminating against child welfare service providers based on the providers’ unwillingness to take action contrary to their sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Sen. Tim Scott said President Joe Biden (D) has made it harder for faith-based foster care to operate.

“Faith-based foster care organizations have provided reliable, effective resources to countless families and children with nowhere else to go,” said Senator Scott. “Despite their success, President Biden has caved to the far-left, making it harder for these organizations to provide critical services and leaving the kids who need them most out in the cold. I’m fighting back to protect religious freedom and support the incredible work of these invaluable organizations.”

Moreover, Sen. Rubio mentioned that the Biden administration has “unfairly targeted” faith-based organizations.

“For decades, faith-based nonprofits have been reliable partners with state and local child welfare agencies,” said Senator Rubio. “Now, radical social activists are attempting to stop them from offering foster children essential services.  I’m proud to join this bill, which would strengthen religious liberty protections and ensure these organizations can continue caring for our children.”

Additionally, Sen. Rubio spoke on foreign policy and global disputes as a whole, mentioning that the world was “safer” and “more respected” under Trump.

“Even people that don’t like what Trump says have to admit that the country was safer, more respected, we didn’t have a mass migration crisis, our economy was better, all these things when Trump was in office,” said Rubio. “I think there are a lot of people that are like, no matter what we may feel about what he said about this or that, our lives were better and the country was safer.”

Rubio, who helped frame Trump’s Western Hemisphere policies, added that under the Biden administration's foreign policy, the “unity in the region” has splintered and that many countries have now “flipped” from being Democratic to now being controlled by Socialist or Leftist presidents and governments.

“We went from having a unity in the region that aligned with our views, including the Caribbean, to now a bunch of countries that have flipped, and a bunch of countries that want to be friendly to the United States that feel like this administration treats their friend bad, and their enemies good,” he said.

Rubio also said the "immediate threat" to America was those individuals who "tear down posters" and "chant stupid things," that could start killing people.

Sen. Rubio has not endorsed a presidential candidate yet.
