On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) explains why social media is partially to blame for the political climate today being so divisive today.
"Probably 95 percent of us want 95 percent of the same things. And the truth of the matter is, when the advent of social media became more and more dominant, the ability to make caricatures of people as opposed to knowing them we could just talk about them. Trey Gowdy, my best friend in Congress, said that it's hard to hate up close. Frankly, that's what we're missing. We're missing the interaction. We keep seeing people who may disagree on everything come together on something and make a drastic difference. So if we can get people who are far, far apart just to start talking, you'll find that they want to protect their families, they want to feed their families, they want to maximize their potential, and they want to be the beneficiary of their own hard work. And that is the place to stand."
