Scott emphasized the importance of coalition building and fostering acceptance among diverse groups. He expressed disappointment in President Biden’s divisive leadership, stating that Americans should come together based on shared values rather than skin color.


Seeking Unity Beyond Skin Color


Scott underscored the significance of a consistent value system in bringing Americans together.
