Russian warships made their way to Havana, Cuba last week, sounding the alarm about possible growing tension with the United States. Immediately, political pundits questioned if the United States was entering another Cold War. While some lawmakers have dismissed the issue, others question the future that it could bring. Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) believes that it's a result of the "Biden appeasement policy."

In an exclusive interview with The Floridian, Senator Scott discussed the recent controversy surrounding Russian warships in Cuba. Some Democrats like Florida Rep. Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick (D) questioned if the controversy should force the United States to rethink its relationship with Cuba, but Senator Scott argues that this would be a disastrous move.

"It shows that they [Democrats] don't care about liberty and freedom. If you're open to a relationship with Cuba, you don't give a damn about the people in Cuba. I mean, they're living in misery," the senator expressed.

Senator Scott cited his own experiences in the Navy in discussing the subject.

"I was in Guantanamo Bay refresher training in the U.S. Navy in the 1970s, so I dealt with Russian ships in the Caribbean when I was in the Navy," he explained.

In speaking of the cause of the controversy, the Florida senator blames President Joe Biden (D) for not being strong enough with both countries, and he warns that this type of leadership has been dangerous for the country.

"It just shows you that this Biden appeasement policy of appeasing dictators is not working. Now we have Russian ships coming down there within 30 miles of our coast. That's not happened in decades," Sen. Scott added.

Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R) also dismissed the controversy, saying that “It doesn’t mean as much as people think it means." The Russians deploying their submarines and forces to places like Venezuela and Cuba is nothing new.”
