Fox News Host Chris Wallace Confronts GOP Sen. Tim Scott With ‘Vicious’ Trump Tweets

Towards the end of his interview with Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) on Sunday morning, Fox News host Chris Wallace forced his guest to reckon with the series of incendiary tweets President Donald Trump posted over the weekend as anti-police violence protests raged across the country.

Paraphrasing his previous guest, Dr. Cornel West, the Fox News Sunday host said, “We have to talk not only about what is going on in the riots in the street, we have to talk about what is going on among people at the highest levels of our society.”

Wallace began with the tweet that Twitter hid from users for violating its policy against “glorifying violence.” Trump wrote, “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” adding, “Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” In another tweet thread on Saturday, Trump threatened White House protesters with “vicious dogs” and “ominous weapons.”
