Rick Scott claims James Lankford is ‘smart’ but ‘on a suicide mission’ with border bill

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) defended Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) on Sunday from attacks on all fronts, saying he knows what he’s doing by taking his border bill “on a suicide mission.”

Lankford has been harshly criticized by other Republicans for his border negotiations with Democrats, but he has hit back, saying his work has been misrepresented. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) indicated the bill will not pass in the Republican-controlled House in a “Dear Colleague” letter Friday. As a fellow Republican senator, Scott seemingly agreed during a Fox News Sunday interview.

“James is smart, he’s hard-working, he knows the issue. He’s on a suicide mission,” Scott said. “Democrats don’t want to secure the border. That’s number one. Number two is, right now, this border could be secure, but we know we have a lawless administration, completely lawless Biden administration.”
