- Trump had kind words for Tim Scott ahead of the senator’s WH campaign launch, according to The Times.

- While Trump showed kindness to Scott, he went full speed ahead attacking Governor Ron DeSantis.
Former President Donald Trump burned Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida for months during his now declared presidential campaign, calling his former ally ‘disloyal’ and dismissing the former congressman’s bid for office. national.
But in stark contrast, Trump had nothing but kind words for Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, whom he worked with during his tenure in the White House.
And according to a recent New York Times report, Trump still had positive feelings about Scott before the conservative lawmaker launched his presidential campaign last week.
While watching Fox News at his Mar-a-Lago club in South Florida recently, Trump allegedly spouted all sorts of negative words about his longtime ally.
“I like him. We’re just going to say nice things about Tim,” Trump said, according to an unnamed person who spoke to The Times.
After Scott made his campaign announcement in North Charleston, South Carolina, last week, Trump wished him well in the GOP contest and said the senator would be a “big step up” from DeSantis – whose presidential announcement took place the same week.
