Senator Scott Statement on Orlando Terror Attacks

Charleston, SC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement regarding last night’s tragedy in Orlando.

“Last night, we unfortunately were faced once again with what happens when someone is overwhelmed by hate. The atrocity in Orlando has left Florida and our nation in shock, and I know that over the next few days we will come together and show the world that America stands as one against terror and those who would do us harm. I extend my deepest sympathies to the families of those killed and injured; while you are facing unimaginable pain today, we all stand ready to lift you up.

To ISIS and Islamic terror groups and fighters around the globe – your senseless acts, driven by your misguided and heartless belief in a bloody, global jihad, will not defeat us. You are only strengthening our resolve, sturdying our footing, and sealing your own fate.”
