Scott, who now chairs the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which works to keep Republicans in control of the Senate, said President Donald Trump could campaign for Republican candidates during the midterm elections.
He said “there’s probably going to be places where he can be helpful, and there’s places where he won’t be helpful. It’s sort of up to him. He got 74 million votes. He continues to have support. He had record fundraising online.”
On the one hand, Trump aiding the Republicans in 2022 seems unlikely since all but six Republican Senators betrayed Trump and voted to certify Democrat Joe Biden’s unconstitutional and fraudulent Electoral College victory.
On the other hand, Scott said some Republicans feel hesitant about giving Trump a platform in future elections, since they blame him for the protest at the Capitol building.
“I know there’s going to be some people who disagree with that,” he said. “My job is to try to navigate all this.”
But Scott said the Capitol Hill protest will not weigh heavily on voters’ minds in two years.
“In ’22 what people are going to focus on is what’s good for their family,” he said. “My job to is to explain to them that what the Democrats want to do is not as good for their family as what Republicans want to do. I think that’s what’s going to matter.”
Scott said America would have been better off had Sens. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., and David Perdue, R-Ga., won their elections last week, but the Democratic Party’s unified control of government will reveal its radical agenda.
“Over the next two years, the Democrats are going to try to do a whole bunch of things that the public doesn’t want,” he said. “They don’t want packing the Supreme Court. They don’t want higher taxes and more regulation. They don’t want the police defunded. I think the Democrats now have the ability to go do some things. I think it’s going to help define them and I think it’s going to help us have a big win in 2022.”
