Tim Scott dodges 2024 election results and says Trump will become president

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) repeatedly dodged questions in a Sunday interview about whether he would commit to accepting the 2024 election results regardless of who wins, saying instead that former President Trump would end his campaign for White House will win.

In an interview on NBC News’s “Meet the Press,” Kristen Welker Scott — who is considered a contender for Trump’s vice presidential pick — pressed Trump’s refusal to accept his loss in the 2020 presidential election and his refusal to to commit to accepting the elections. results in 2024 if he loses.

Welker asked why he wanted to align himself with Trump “when there is such a fundamental difference,” and Scott defended Trump’s recent statement.

Welker then asked Scott if he would commit to accepting the results of the 2024 election.

“Ultimately, the 47th president of the United States will be President Donald Trump. And I’m excited to get back to low inflation and low unemployment,” Scott responded before Welker intervened.

“Wait, wait, Senator. Yes or no; Yes or no? Will you accept the 2024 election results regardless of who wins?”

“That’s my explanation,” Scott replied.

Welker continued to insist.

“But just yes or no: will you accept the 2024 election results?” Welker asked again.

Scott didn’t want to budge from his position.

“I look forward to President Trump becoming the 47th president. Kristen, you can ask multiple times,” he said, as Welker interjected again, asking for “just a yes or no answer.”

“The American people will make the decision, and the decision will be President Trump’s.”

‘I don’t hear that you are committed to the election results. Are you willing to accept the election results?”

Scott then focused on attacking Welker and her network, saying, “This is why so many Americans believe NBC is an extension of the Democratic party.”

“In the end I said what I said. I know the voice of the American people will be heard, and I believe President Trump will be our next president. It’s that simple,” he said.

Welker asked again, noting that Scott is a potential VP nominee, and Scott reiterated his confidence in Trump’s victory in 2024, saying, “I’m not going to answer your hypothetical question.”
